“Engrossingly personal and finely crafted, Welcome to My Heart is the work of a young songsmith already at the peak of his formidable powers.” – Gareth Hipwell, Country Update.
“Angus Gill is a brilliant singer/songwriter. If you want to be thoroughly entertained, you’ll go and see his show” – Ray Hadley OAM
Award winning singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, comedian and producer Angus Gill is establishing his place as one of Australia’s top new country acts. The authenticity in Gill’s distinctive vocals, warm stage presence and trademark brand of humour is beyond his years. From becoming one of the youngest Australians to debut on the Grand Ole Opry, opening for the legendary Kris Kristofferson on his Australian tour, to appearing regularly on national TV and radio programs, such as Studio 10, The Daily Edition, The Ray Hadley Show and more. Gill is quickly earning his place on national and international stages.
The Golden Guitar nominated artist and producer has collaborated with some of Music Row’s biggest hitmakers who took Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Dolly Parton and Tim McGraw to the #1 spot.
This has led to the creation of Gill’s second self produced studio album ‘Welcome To My Heart’, released via ABC/Universal in September 2019, which topped the ARIA Charts and was a finalist for ‘Traditional Country Album of the Year’ at the 2020 CMAA Golden Guitar Awards.
The title track first single was written following a conversation with Lisa Loeb about the lack of platonic love songs and is about being at home with the family on a perfect Sunday. ‘Welcome To My Heart’ is followed by the second single ‘Origins’ based on the fabric of our existence. ‘Origins’ is also the title of Gill’s recently released podcast, featuring guest interviews that explore the genesis, catalyst, and origins of each guest’s story, flicking through the pages of the past and seeing how their origins have made them the person they are today.
The 14-track album also features a duet with James Blundell called ‘Doesn’t Mean I Don’t Believe’, ‘Don’t Care How Long It Takes’ written with industry legend and mentor Graeme Connors while Aussie-ex pat virtuoso guitarist Joe Robinson plays on the song ‘Sidetracked’. Alan Caswell co-wrote Irish drinking song ‘We’d Prefer You Pay In Cash’ and the album has touches of humour with ‘Last Minute Larry’ as well as references to family including Gill’s late great granddad – who lived to be 103 – on ‘Bad Women’.
