Archie is one of Australia's most treasured performers. His award-winning music spans 30 years. For the first time in his career Archie has just released a three CD box set of concerts recorded live between 2012-2018. It begins with the 2012 Into The Bloodstream concert complete with a thirteen-piece band and ten-voice gospel choir. Then in 2017 Archie launches Let Love Rule a suite of songs about a willingness to love all people including the powerful voices of both the Dhungala Children's Choir and Short Black Opera and in 2018 the Dancing With My Spirit album that explores spirituality and showcases the sublime voices of Australian trio Tiddas.

Archie only recently put out live recordings of his shows: three boxed sets of his work from 2012-2018 which includes, Into The Bloodstream - Let Love Rule and 2018’s Dancing With My Spirit – when Tiddas reformed to sing with him. In addition, he’s working on a major project – a memoir – which sees him casting his mind over his life as a whole, not just as one of Australia’s foremost musical voices, but as an advocate for the rights of First Nations people and a significant contributor to Australian cultural life. Sean Sennett draws Archie out.
