Appearing at the Laurieton United Services Club, Thursday May 25
Supported by Wauchope’s Angus Gill
After taking home the ARIA for Country Album of the Year in November 2016, Sara Storer was voted Female Artist of the Year at the Country Music Awards of Australia, held in Tamworth on Saturday 28th January.
Sara also took out the award for Best Bush Ballad for her song, ‘Amazing Night’, which she performed to a capacity audience at the Tamworth Regional Conference and Convention Centre.
The two gongs take Sara’s career tally to 21.
Sara is recognised as one of Australia’s finest singer-songwriters whose crisp observations of the Australian landscape and its people provide the solid foundation stone for her music.
Sara Storer was born to sing about real people, honest emotions, and the land she loves and the attention that these latest accolades will bring to her latest work will no doubt further solidify her position as one of our finest musical poets.
Sara kicks off a national tour to promote her award-winning album Silos in February with a string of dates that will take her to all states and territories throughout 2017.
Local lad Angus Gill, from Wauchope, is supporting Sara on tour.
Aged just 19, Angus is somewhat of a veteran in the performance and song writing stakes. His live show is a dynamic collection of catchy, humorous and poignant songs to make you laugh, cry and think.
“I like to be a showman,” says Gill. “One of the primary reasons that audiences come along to the shows is to be entertained and it is my job to make sure they are having a great time.”
Whether he’s delivering a heart wrenching ballad from a stool, dashing through the audience while soloing over a Robert Johnson song or rapidly reciting ‘The Auctioneer’ at 250 beats per minute – there’s something for everyone at an Angus Gill show.
Gill was a crowd favourite at the recent Tamworth Country Music Festival, and a grand finalist in the Australia’s biggest and longest running talent competition Toyota Star Maker, where he performed to over 5,000 people in Bicentennial Park. He also attracted the attention of superstar Guy Sebastian, who tweeted, “Forget Duncan, I’d love to have a beer with Angus.”
