“Angus Gill is a brilliant young singer/songwriter and if you want to be throughly entertained, you’ll go and see his show” – Ray Hadley OAM.
Singer/songwriter Angus Gill is quickly establishing his place as one of Australia’s top rising country music artists, receiving a coveted Southern Stars Australian Independent Country Music Award. At 21 years of age, the authenticity in Gill’s distinctive vocals, warm stage presence and trademark brand of humour is evidence that he may have been on this planet before. From playing in a boxing ring at a Sonny Bill Williams fight, to appearing on Studio 10, The Daily Edition, The Ray Hadley Show and many more, the Wauchope born entertainer is earning his place on both national and international stages. Among his fans is Guy Sebastian, who mentioned, “Forget Duncan, I wanna have a beer with Angus.”
Gill’s debut album Nomad has an overarching theme of journeys, spending several weeks cruising along the ARIA Country Albums Charts. Gill had a #1 song on Australian Country Radio with his second single Hands are Clean. Not only did he co-write the songs with the cream of the crop of the Australian Country music scene, including Adam Harvey, Gina Jeffreys, Luke O’Shea and more, Gill also produced, engineered and mixed all 13 tracks on this debut album.
Fresh from a 2 month songwriting trip to Nashville, Gill worked with music legends Bernie Taupin, Rodney Crowell, Steve Earle and collaborated with Music Row’s biggest hitmakers, responsible for songs that took Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw & Faith Hill to the #1 spot.
Gill recently signed a worldwide publishing deal with Origin Music Publishing, who represent the likes of Megan Washington, Lior, Gotye and James Morrison. His new album Welcome to my Heart is due for release on September 20th 2019 via ABC Music featuring collaborations with Australian Country music legends Graeme Connors, James Blundell and Aussie-ex pat virtuoso guitarist Joe Robinson.
