Adelaide is from CJ Shaw’s album All Sorts. Combining the best of his children’s songs with his unique brand of contemporary Australiana, Shaw has dubbed All Sorts “the ultimate Family Album”. With more than a decade experience touring and performing at music festivals in Australia and Timor-Leste, CJ is an exciting Canberra musician at the top of his game.
Armed with a guitar and a swag full of harmonicas, singer-songwriter CJ’s intricate finger-picking, word play and storytelling never fails to captivate his audiences. His music is distinctly Australian in style, influenced by Paul Kelly and Slim Dusty. His lyrical storytelling and musicality lends itself to audiences of all ages.
In 2020, CJ was nominated for an ARIA Award for ‘Music Teacher of the Year’ with Jimmy Barnes as his official ambassador presenting him with the nomination. This prestigious music industry acknowledgement recognised his dynamic and poignant songwriting for primary-aged children. These celebrated songs are woven through his performances and albums, played alongside satirical and storytelling Australiana folk songs.
