MIGHTY MILDURA – 2014 – Very Nice News!!

By | News | No Comments

BOOM!

Well thankfully I did have more luck than the mighty Swanies and I am very happy to report that I was lucky enough to bag four awards at the 2014 Southern Stars Australian Independent Country Music Awards night in Mildura.

The coveted Album of the Year, Male Vocal and Single of the Year as well as taking out the 2014  Independent Artist of the Year. Very humbled by the evening and it certainly makes the long hard yards worth it and deeply encourages me to keep on keeping on!

Sincere thanks to the judges and my peers for the honour and I will do my very best to uphold your faith in me!

Lots to do – with a tonne more fire in the belly!

Thanks once again Mildura!

Luke 🙂

Well let’s hope I have more luck than the Swanies (and the poor old Sharks) at the Mildura Country Music Festival this week!!
I am very happy to report that my latest album ‘Sing You Up’ is thankfully up for four nominations at the Southern Stars – Australian Independent Country Music Awards – next Saturday – for Album of the Year, Single of the Year, Male Vocalist and Heritage Track of the Year.
Three of the four noms are for this song attached below ‘Three Brothers (The Great War)’ – and I sincerely hope you enjoy the clip and the sentiment behind it.
