GRAEME CONNORS TO BRING THE 'BACKCOUNTRY' TO NSW


Iconic Australian Singer/Songwriter, Graeme Connors will bring his ‘from the backcountry’ tour to NSW in October and November as part of his national album tour.

Recognised as one of Australia’s most eclectic 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 and special debut performances from his new album from the backcountry.

“We’re heading a little further south in October! The NSW leg kicks off on the 5th in Lismore. I’m really excited to be back on the road and reconnecting with my fans, long-time and new, and introducing them to the songs I’ve been working on over the last few years,” Graeme said.

Connors new album, from the backcountry was released in August and features his lead single ‘One Life’. The new album debuted at #4 on the ARIA Country Albums chart and #6 on the ARIA Australian Artists Albums (all genres) chart.

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

“This album enters new terrain for me as both a singer and songwriter. I’m growing with my fans and diversifying my sound,”

“Australian 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 and the vast and diverse landscape that is our backyard,” Connors said.

from the backcountry is Connors first album of all new material in 7 years since the release of At the Speed of Life in 2011.

The album is essentially a lyrical journal of Graeme’s explorations over the past few years.

“I’m still amazed and excited to find, with all my years of travel and experience there are places from the backcountry, both in the physical landscape and my subconscious world, that inspire me to write - to capture life in all its mystery and wonder.” Connors said.
