New beginnings: Xavier Rudd 8.1.24

New beginnings  

Xavier Rudd (born 29 May 1978) is an Australian singer, songwriter, musician, and multi-instrumentalist. He often sings about themes which are important to society or well being like: environmentalism, spirituality, and the rights of the Indigenous Australians.  

Rudd showed a keen interest in music growing up in a family of seven children. While in primary school, Rudd used his mother's vacuum cleaner as a makeshift didgeridoo and began playing his brother's guitar. He also played saxophone and clarinet as a child. 

Rudd often likes to spend time in the Australian bush, championing the traditional Aboriginal Australian way of life.  

When asked about his religious beliefs, Rudd has said "I’m not religious in the sense that I don’t believe in a God and I don’t follow the tenets of organised churches, but I believe in nature and everything that surrounds me: I love Earth, the sun, the sea and animals. Music is my only church." 


Follow, follow the sun 
And which way the wind blows 
When this day is done 

Breath, breath in the air 
Set your intentions 
Dream with care 


Tomorrow is a new day for everyone
