Angus Gill & Seasons of Change have secured 2 Golden Guitar nominations for Alt Country Album of the Year and Group or Duo of the Year for the 2021 CMAA Country Music Awards of the Australia.
The album 3 Minute Movies, has received critical acclaim in Australia and the US, since its release on September 25. It reached #1 on the AIR Albums Chart and debuted at #28 on the ARIA Top 100 Albums (All Genres), #8 Australian Albums (All Genres), #2 Australian Country Albums and #4 on the Country Albums Chart.
Gill said, “I’m thrilled to receive 2 Golden Guitar nominations for my new record with Seasons of Change, called 3 Minute Movies. Seasons of Change is of course a pseudonym for the members of Paul Kelly’s band, including Peter ‘Lucky’ Luscombe, Bill McDonald, Cameron Bruce, Ashley Naylor and Dan Kelly. All exceptional players and making this record with them really stretched me as an artist and a producer. We tracked the album in an analogue studio in Melbourne, refrained from using modern production techniques and therefore the process was raw, organic and authentic. The band opened my eyes to a whole new sonic palette. I’d like to thank Lucky, Cam, Bill, Ash and Dank for being part of this project and PK for lending his band. I’m hoping we’ll have the opportunity to tour the new record as Angus Gill & Seasons of Change in 2021.”
Guitarist Ashley Naylor, from the iconic Melbourne rock trio Even, said, “Myself and the PK band had a blast recording with Angus. This strong collection of songs flowed freely in the studio and he gave us the freedom to colour them accordingly.”
In addition to the Golden Guitar nominations, Gill is also nominated for an ARIA award for Best Comedy Release for his work with comedy legend Bev Killick on her debut single Crummy Mummy. It is lifted from the forthcoming comedy album Uncle Nev & Aunty Bev’s Late Night Aussie Barbie, which Gill produced, co-wrote and played all the instruments on.

“You had better bring your A game if you head into the studio with the legendary Paul Kelly’s band as your studio musicians and have Steve Earle join you for a duet. And that’s exactly what young Australian singer-songwriter Angus Gill did…3 Minute Movies has a fine cinematic quality” Twangville
“3 Minute Movies is a musical sugar fix” Americana Highways
“ Call it Australiacana, or whatever you may will but Gill aged voice reminds listeners of young oldsters like Colter Wall and Cody Jinks.” Glide Magazine
“The New Old Me rocks and rolls with a steady, intense energy. Great vibe, great playing and a witty lyric that works on a few levels. On high rotation around here!”

“On 3 Minute Movies, Gill presents a more pop-oriented side of his songwriting.
He cares about idiosyncrasies, the small things in songwriting that make a
big difference in what he brings to the world”
“Angus Gill is an astonishingly talented Australian singer and songwriter – one who well and truly holds his own recording alongside Paul Kelly’s super talented band and, in one instance, duetting with Steve Earle. It’s a pleasure to work with Angus and be part of his music journey and evolution.” Stuart Coupe.
