One of Australia’s most successful recording artists, country music legend Adam Brand will be performing an unforgettable night of music in Albany this weekend as part of his national tour.
The Perth-born multi-award winning singer will be joined by talented songstress Beccy Cole and will perform songs from his new album There Will Be Love, including his latest single I Was Here.
Featuring uplifting and heartfelt tracks, Brand said his new album is very personal and hopes when people listen to the whole thing, they will feel a sense of hope at the end of it.
“We all go through ups and downs in our life and life throws curve balls at you, sometimes it’s quite easy to get a little cynical and lose hope, and this album takes you through the journey,” he said.
Brand had the highest charting Australian country album of the year in 2012 and has sold more than half a million CDs and DVDs throughout his career.
He has also had three platinum and five gold albums and been nominated four times for the ARIA’s Best Country Album.
Brand said awards were great, but the highlights of his career happened all the time and were not things most people would expect.
“The greatest reward happens at every gig, when families come up to you and a three-year-old wraps their arms around your neck or a little girl has drawn you a picture,” he said.
Brand has also lent his vocals to charity, helping the Salvation Army with their TV Christmas appeal in which they used his single I Was Here as the anthem for the campaign.
No stranger to the TV screen either, Brand has been a host on lifestyle show The Great Outdoors and his music has featured on the soundtrack to reality program Farmer Wants a Wife.
Brand said he is looking forward to kicking off his tour in his home State and this will be his first time back to WA in a few years.
“It doesn’t matter how long you’re gone for because when that plane starts coming over those little hills and it touches down, it’s just a familiarity you can’t explain,” he said.
Brand said the performance would be one audience members will not forget.
“It’s an action-packed, crammed choc-a-block, full night — don’t expect to come here and nod off because we are going to keep you on the edge of your seat the whole night,” he said.
Brand and Cole will perform at Albany Entertainment Centre on Sunday, February 10, at 7.30pm.
