Labor MP calls Greens election ad ‘untruthful and misleading’

With a successful 12-year recording career in Australia under his belt, Adam Brand made the move to America in 2009 to share his country music internationally.

‘My music is a reflection of me and how I view the world,’ Adam says. ‘It’s not only something I love – it’s something I love to do.’

Born in Perth, Adam fell in love with music as a kid watching the band his dad and uncles had. ‘The very first time I sang in public, I was three years old. Dad put me up on stage at a club.’

Thanks to his father’s interest in music, Adam grew up listening to everything from Elvis to the Eagles. His musical influences include such artists as Garth Brooks and storytellers like John Mellencamp, Bruce Springsteen and Kris Kristofferson.

In 1999, Adam paid his first visit to Nashville. He came as a songwriter and returned annually to collaborate on songs that he would record and release in Australia.

‘It’s always been about communicating and telling the story,’ Adam says. ‘But most of all, I want my music to be real. If someone meets me and hears my music, I want them to know that I mean it.’

During his Australian music career, Adam has released several albums and won multiple awards, including 12 Golden Guitar awards. He has also been voted CMC (Country Music Channel) Oz Artist of the Year every year since its inception in 2007. As a recent special guest on tour with Taylor Swift, Adam Brand has had a huge year with a new single being released in America.

During February, Adam crosses the country with the Brand Wagon tour and he stops in Tweed Heads this weekend. He will be supported by the Sunny Cowgirls, McAlister Kemp, Sam Haksley and Matt Cornell. Jump on the Brand Wagon at Twin Towns this Friday.
