Welcome to this very special album project “Aussie Favourites Bluegrassed”. I have always kept an open mind in my approach to my music and the bluegrass genre is a music form I have always found earthy and real. Stories of life with pure acoustic tones and heart.
I got to thinking that we have so many great Australian songs that would sound terrific in a bluegrass environment hence this project came to be. I once again contacted my good friend and producer Larry Marrs in Nashville and gave him a list of some of the world’s best bluegrass pickers that I knew would fit this bluegrass project perfectly.
All of us met one beautiful spring day in Scott Vestal's digital underground studio in Greenbrier Tennessee and really had a great time recording down these tracks. The American pickers were really into these songs as they had never heard them before and it was a common consenus that these were great songs. I would like to thank my great Aussie bluegrass mates Kristy Cox, Pete Denahy and the Davidson Brothers for their contribution on this project to make this album even more special.
If you would like to order a copy of the new album or any of my previous albums, you can do so from this website. For a preview of the album you can also listen to song samples from this site.
So Ya’ll crank up the volume, put on your finger picks and sit back and listen to some great Aussie songs bluegrassed.
