GRAEME CONNORS AND BAND TO TOUR QUEENSLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES AND
VICTORIA


Iconic Australian Artist, Graeme Connors, will do what he does best and take to the road from August with
his touring band for shows throughout Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.

Recognised as one of Australia’s most eclectic Country singer/songwriters, Graeme has received numerous
awards during his more than 40-year career for his contribution to Country Music. Golden Guitars, ARIA,
PPCA and APRA Awards line his shelves, with his most recent prestigious accolade, 2016 inductee to the Roll
of Renown (Australia’s Country Music Hall of Fame).

During his highly-anticipated two-hour show, fans will enjoy the hits that made him a household name,
favourites from his 19 album catalogue and special debut performances from his upcoming 2018 album.

“I can’t wait to get back on the road with the band and connect with my fans, long-time and new, and
introduce them to the songs I’ve been working on over the last few years,” Connors said.

'One Life', the first single from the upcoming album ‘from the backcountry’, was released on Friday (15
June). ‘from the backcountry’ will be available everywhere on August 3. Pre-order the album and listen to

The new album, recorded with multi-award winning Australian Producer Matt Fell at his Sydney studio,
combines Graeme’s signature modern country sound with elements of rock, blues and roots.

“Country is who I am and always will be. I’m constantly trying to capture the Australian story in my music, and naturally I
draw inspiration from regional communities,” Connors said.

"The new album will enter new terrain. I’m growing with my fans and diversifying my sound,” he said.
