Two-times 2019 Golden Guitar nominee & 2018 Toyota Star Maker Winner Brad Cox has had incredible year, kicking it off opening for both Lee Kernaghan and The McClymonts at his Tamworth Country Music Festival in front of capacity crowds. He joined Adam Eckersley and Brooke McClymont on their national Highway Tour and Randy Houser’s Australian Tour with Chugg Entertainment. In addition to performances at Gympie Muster, Groundwater Festival, Deni Ute Muster and many other festivals and events Brad has also toured his own shows with over 80 shows through 2018 reaching over 10,000 people.
Brad Cox the Jindabyne born and raised continues to amaze crowds after his Star Maker win at Tamworth Country Music Festival last year. Brad released his debut album in May and since then, has not stopped touring the album around Australian while supporting The McClymonts, Brooke McClymont & Adam Eckersley while playing almost every major festival in 2018 circuit.
When Brad Cox won the prestigious competition at the Tamworth Country Music Festival in January, he announced to the crowd, “You’re going to be seeing a lot more of me”. Making good on that promise, here he is, in your town.
He has a big sound. A big voice. A big band. And BIG dreams.
Backed by a tight three-piece band, featuring Hunter Beasley on guitar, mandolin and banjo; Jackson Besley on bass and James Edge on drums, Brad leads from the front with a voice that stops traffic and tells stories of love in his charming southern country style; love of chasing skirt, love of the land, love of being a lad and, above all, love of a beer and a yarn.
During Brad’s show he’ll play all the songs from the album and you’ll hear sounds like the dirty Blues of “Drinking Pioneer” to laid back Southern styling of “Found My Way Home”, to the Country Pop #1 “Red Light” and #2 “Too Drunk To Drive”, then on to the truly Australian ballad of both beauty and heartbreak, “Water On The Ground”. Brad blurs the lines of genre and style, breaking both the mould and new ground in Australian country music
His self -titled album released May 4, debuted at #2 on the iTunes Country Charts where it’s remained for some weeks in the Top #10. The album is available now on iTunes and through www.BradCoxOfficial.com
Brad’s no stranger to the road, growing up in Jindabyne in the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales and having worked in the Territory, as well as a good portion of country NSW following the harvest. There’s a whole lot of kilometres, fence posts, tractor hours, pub gigs and bottles of Stones in the lyrics of this 12- track album, and as you listen, you’ll feel every one.
Manager Steve White (Lee Kernaghan, The Wolfe Brothers) said; “Brad impressed me the first time I saw him perform in Tamworth this year. He has a great voice and is writing good songs. I think he is the real deal and I look forward to watching him develop.”
Roxanne Brown (Troy Cassar-Daley) said; “Brad Cox is a great writer and connects with his audience. His southern rock sound sets him apart.”
KIX Country Network program/content director Justin Thomson: “Australian country music is ready for Brad Cox, he’s captivating to watch live, a unique voice, his music sounds great on radio, and he’s a genuine great guy. Brad Cox is a standout.”
