TOM MAXWELL

DUST OF AUSTRALIA

from the LBS COUNTRY COLLECTION VOLUME 23 album.

DD74 – TOM MAXWELL – DUST OF AUSTRALIA

 

There is little doubt that TOM MAXWELL is one of the leading forces in today’s crop of Balladeers. One of just a handful of travelling Bush Balladeers still on the road full time. Tom is not only living the dream. He is keeping alive an Australian way of life that has served to enshrine the Australian Bush Heritage.

Through hard work and sheer determination he has carved his niche in the Australian Country Music industry and has seen his fan base explode in recent times. Tom has been down plenty of dusty roads, met many characters along the way and heard some of the best yarns to be told and like the Balladeers who came before him and built the foundations for today’s country music industry. Tom continues to preserve those stories in music and song.

An accomplished entertainer, Tom has already released 13 successful albums, and has made the finals in many of Australia’s Country Music Awards including the Prestigious Star Maker and a five-time Golden Guitar finalist with his most recent nomination in 2016 for Bush Ballad of the Year.  In January 2010, Tom was inducted into the Hands of Fame Park in Tamworth, an honour awarded to those for their services and contribution within the Australian Country Music Industry.

Tom has a deep respect for the pioneering greats who have influenced his musical style and his genuine attitude, easy going disposition and likeable nature, combined with his underlying passion and devotion to our Australian Music and its Heritage, all contribute to the acceptance and adulation Tom receives.

DUST OF AUSTRALIA is the first single release from forthcoming album due for release mid 2019 written by TOM MAXWELL, RAY ROSE & TERRY BENNETTS.
