Angus Gill is a brilliant young singer/songwriter, and if you want to be thoroughly entertained, you’ll go and see his show”
– Ray Hadley OAM
“In an industry that is often filled with many ‘cookie cutter’ artists that tend to imitate other artists styles, Angus is truly a breath of fresh air… unique, determined and devoted to his music career.”
– David Woodward (Reputation Marketing)
At 20 years of age, the authenticity of Australian singer-songwriter Angus Gill’s distinctive vocals and sharp observations that bind his songs, are quite possibly evidence that he may have been on this planet before. As somewhat of a veteran in the songwriting and performance stakes, the Wauchope-based entertainer’s infectious, yet thought-provoking songs, warm stage presence and trademark brand of humour is delighting audiences and festival goers, while an array of respected musical identities are also singing his praises.
Amoung them is Guy Sebastian, who recently tweeted, “Forget Duncan, I wanna have a beer with Angus.”
Gill’s debut album Nomad, has rapidly begun to cement him in the hearts and minds of Australian music fans, spending several weeks on the ARIA Charts, Australia’s equivalent to the Billboard charts. This is an album that contains an overarching theme of journeys, making it the perfect roadtrip companion.
Not only has he co-written all the songs with the cream of the crop of the Australian music scene, including Adam Harvey, Gina Jeffreys, Luke O’Shea and Kevin Bennett, Gill has also produced and mixed all 13 tracks on this debut album.
The album also features Angus teaming up with Kevin Bennett and Amos Morris on Staring Out The Back of a Car dealing with the tragedy of the Stolen Generation and he duets with Adam Harvey on P Plater, a track dealing with the realities of young drivers combining Angus and Adam’s senses of humour.
Gill has promoted the album and the #1 hit single Hands are Clean, by appearing on numerous national television and radio programs including Channel 7’s The Daily Edition, Channel 10’s Studio 10, as well as The Ray Hadley Show on 2GB, Evenings with Christine Anu on ABC National and the Grant Goldman Show on the 2SM Super Network.
After completing a six week writing trip in Music City USA, hanging out with music legends Rodney Crowell, Steve Earle, Vince Gill, Bernie Taupin and Ray Stevens, as well as collaborating with Nashville biggest hitmakers Bob DiPiero (Tim McGraw, Faith Hill), Jeffrey Steele (Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban), John Scott Sherrill (Mick Jagger, Alan Jackson), Terry McBride (Brooks & Dunn, McBride & The Ride), Byron Hill (George Strait, George Jones) and Jim Collins (Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley).
