Folk singer Kaurna Cronin has today released a brand new video for his latest single, Inside Your Town is Inside Your Head.

At the climax of the clip, reaching just under two and a half minutes, Cronin and his backing band are finally seen jamming together which also includes a killer electric guitar solo — check it out here!

Meanwhile, it is busy times for Cronin who will release his upcoming album, Glass Fool this year, which also features the above track.

"Kaurna Cronin - Pistol Eyes"

A few months ago at the very first Timber & Steel curated folk event in Adelaide, Kaurna Cronin and his band took to the stage to launch his second release- Wishing Wells before a captivated audience at The Jade Monkey.

Since then, Kaurna has been travelling, writing, recording, performing, busking, networking, creating and planning to hit the road in a big way upon his return to Australia next year.

Filtering back from his current base in Berlin through to Adelaide has been some of the fruit of Kaurna‘s labour, including this new video for “Pistol Eyes”. I’ve been informed that there’s more on the way too, so keep an eye out for this 19 year old South Australian. - Timber & Steel

"Introducing "Kaurna Cronin""

Introducing Kaurna Cronin. Kaurna spent his childhood on the road and living out of a suitcase as he accompanied his travelling parents. At 19 years of age, Kaurna has travelled Australia & Europe, performing on the streets & in all-sorts of mismatched venues.
