Dai Pritchard


Dai Pritchard is a songwriter, performer and rock and roll legend and is best known as the guitarist of Australian rock band Rose Tattoo. Kicking off his musical career in a punk rock band called The Fence, he began to hone his craft as an exhilarating live performer. Pritchard brings an incredible arsenal of technical expertise, broad enough to allow him to slot in easily behind anyone that needs a slice of his power and versatility.

Pritchard has worked with a number of rock music stars, as the guitarist of the likes of Jimmy Barnes, Glen Shorrock of LRB, Doug Parkinson, Olivia Newtown-John, Marcia Hines and many more. But it was his eight years playing with the late Billy Thorpe that consolidated his reputation as a hard-working and powerful player, an association that took him around the country not only with Thorpe, but as part of the incredibly successful Long Way To The Top tours in 2012 & 2013.

In July 2015, Pritchard became a full-time member of Rose Tattoo, as he jumped on a 30-date European tour on the back of their latest album, Blood Brothers. Pritchard went on to co-write with the other members of the band, but has also produced solo material including his latest album Killin’ Time, which he performs with The Dai Pritchard Band.
