Tamworth Sweeeeet Tamworth

Well ladies and gentlemen, it gives me great pleasure to share the joy of sweet relief with you!

January 26th Australia Day saw me perform The Drover’s Wife to a beautiful packed house out at TREC at this years Golden Guitar Awards. I then sat with my folks and beautiful Ms Lizzy and watched the newest Order of Australia recipient – Mr Dobe Newton – Bushwackers LEGEND – read out my name for the Heritage Track of the Year! BOOM!! Magic moment that I am am proud to share with you!

Equal to that honor was when Joy McKean & Troy Casser Daly presented me with the coveted and inaugural Bush Laureates ‘Golden Gumleaf’ Awards for Australian Verse to Song at the Bush Laureates Awards in the stunning Tamworth Town Hall.

Combine this with amazing ‘live’ shows with such great mates and the exceptional musicianship of Medicine Wheel – it really was a fantastic Festival that I am very happy and relieved to share with you long suffering believers!!

For the many years of support and encouragement – Sincere thanks!

Hope to catch you soon somewhere in the madness!! 🙂

G’day there,
Well here I sit fully rested after a three week digital hiatus in the beautiful regions of Southern Victoria, gearing up for whats is to be certainly my biggest Tamworth to date!
Really looking forward to getting the special boys of Medicine Wheel together – from the four corners of the globe – to sit side by side each day in the MIGHTY MIGHTY Tamworth Services Club and finally do that voodoo that we do so well! – We are also recording each show live this year in the hope of capturing forever that certain magic that has been evolving together over the last 12 years… so stay posted with that one!
Heading into Tamworth I am humbled and grateful to share that I’m up for a few gongs!
* The 2013 Bush Laureate Award For Recorded Australian Song Lyric of the Year – The Drover’s Wife
* 3 X 2013 Australian Country Music Peoples Choice Awards – Male Vocal – The Drover’s Wife
– Heritage Song – The Drover’s Wife & Vocal Collaboration – New England Sky – With Dianna Corcoran.
* 3 X 2013 CMAA Golden Guitar Awards for : Male Vocal – The Drover’s Wife
– Heritage Song – The Drover’s Wife & Vocal Collaboration – New England Sky – With Dianna Corcoran.
All this coming from two songs that are very important to me and come straight from the right place – my heart! Regardless of the awards, it is very satisfying to know that more than a few people are now hearing and connecting with my songs and that does make the struggle and fight all the more easier to face.

So thank you for the support and keeping my wheels spinning whilst everybody else was looking the other way and here’s hoping we can things interesting enough to keep that mojo going!
Safe travels if heading up the New England & hope to catchya somewhere soon!


Luke 🙂
