Eric Bogle is one of the best and most prolific songwriters of the last several decades. 

An Australian resident for 53 years, and an Australian citizen since 1982, he is an internationally known and respected singer/songwriter who has toured internationally for 25 years up until 2009, in spite of warnings to "stop it or you'll go blind". Whilst Eric usually confines his touring to Australia and New Zealand he has not given up song-writing and recording. 

Eric is a warm and engaging stage performer, and his songs have the knack of getting straight to the heart of the matter with intelligent and well-crafted lyrics. His songs have been recorded by many other artists ranging from Joan Baez, Donovan, The Pogues and Mary Black through to our own late, great Slim Dusty. Voices is Eric’s 16th CD and confirms his status as one of Australia’s most renowned folk singer songwriters. 

Very much ahead of the pack, Eric Bogle wrote the classic And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda and No Man’s Land (The Greenfields Of France), which were placed No.1 and 5 respectively in a Celebrity Top 50 Songs Poll in a national newspaper, above such international artists as Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, Leonard Cohen and John Prine. 

Eric has been described as a bit of a living legend, a label which he is uncomfortable with, but, as he says, "it's marginally better than being a dead legend".
