Not many have lived as many lives – from stolen child, teenage alcoholic, seeker, lover, father, musical and lyrical genius, to social advocate and First Nations leader – but it took almost a lifetime to find who he really was. He is Archie Roach.

Now comes Roach’s highly anticipated memoir, Tell Me Why (published by Simon & Schuster), and the 18 track companion album of the same name. The album re-imagines eleven songs which have defined his extraordinary thirty-year musical career, alongside two songs that have never-before-been recorded, two songs of early-influence, and three brand new recordings.

A keen observer and soulful poet, Archie voices the joy, pain and hope he found on his life’s journey through song to become the legendary singer-songwriter and storyteller that he is today – beloved and respected by fans worldwide.
