Dalton, who also has a chiropractic business at Maylands in Adelaide’s eastern suburbs, opened his door to find a client who had left their farm and were moving interstate because of the drought.

“The look on their face – something just snapped,’’ Dalton said yesterday.

It has been a long gestation since. Dalton’s first attempt at raising money didn’t come off but he is trying again, releasing a single called I Can Almost Taste the Rain.

Dalton’s hope is that 25 million Australians download the song from his website and contribute as little as $1 each to drought relief.

“Most people would lose more than that in their couch or in their car,’’ he said.

“We could do a lot of good with $20 to $25 million.’’

So far, only around $400 has been raised for drought relief but Dalton has been talking to organisations such as Drought Angels, a charity which provides farmers and rural communities with food hampers and care packs.

Rainfall across South Australia in 2018 was 24 per cent below average and the new year has not proved any improvement so far.

If no rain falls in Adelaide by tomorrow, it will mark the fourth longest dry spell in SA’s recorded history.

Rainfall across the state was 79 per cent below average. January was also one of the warmest ever on record.
