Angus Gill teams up with US music legend Steve Earle for a stellar duet

“…a swaggering blast of a bygone whirl of bluesy Country that possesses a road-house rhythm snap.Call it Australiacana, or whatever you may will but Gill aged voice reminds listeners of young oldsters like Colter Wall and Cody Jinks.It doesn’t hurt to have a Mr. Steve Earle singing on it either!– Glide Magazine (USA).

Award winning singer/songwriter Angus Gill teams up with his friend, US music legend Steve Earle for a stellar Outlaw Country duet, The New Old Me. Written by Gill and Allan Caswell, the song speaks of transformation. “I’ve had a flair for screwing up, as most of you’d agree/Welcome to the new old me” Earle admits, while Gill credits Earle, “you told me to toughen up and buddy that’s just what I did.” 

Earle first met Gill several years ago at his writing retreat in New York, intrigued by a promising (then) 16 year old Australian singer/songwriter. The two have been friends ever since and Earle introduced Gill to the members of Paul Kelly’s band, while on PK’s 2017 Life Is Fine Tour. Gill approached the band a year later to track a new album project and in December 2018, Angus Gill & Seasons of Change ‘3 Minute Movies’ came to fruition.

“It was thanks to Steve that this project was possible, as he introduced me to PK and the band. I had a bunch of songs I had written, which didn’t fit on my traditional Country album (Welcome To My Heart) and after listening to Life is Fine, I had an ‘aha’ moment. I got in touch with Dan Kelly and soon the whole band was involved and we had a studio booked to make a record. The New Old Me was a song I wrote with my mate Allan Caswell. I had the title and a feel for the song. I felt it could be an idea I could sing with Steve. Thankfully I sent him the track and he loved it.”

The New Old Me is the third single lifted from Angus Gill & Seasons of Change ’3 Minute Movies’, which is out September 25 on Rivershack Records/MGM.

Press Release: Angus releases second single Hey Underdog from latest project

Hey Underdog is the second single lifted from the forthcoming Angus Gill & Seasons of Change record ‘3 Minute Movies’ out Sept 25. Angus Gill & Seasons of Change is the latest project for 2020 Golden Guitar finalist Gill, which sees him join forces with the members of Paul Kelly’s band for an edgy genre busting new record, featuring Peter ‘Lucky’ Luscombe on drums, Bill McDonald on bass, Cameron Bruce on piano and Hammond B3 organ, Dan Kelly and Ashley Naylor on electric guitars.. Mutual friend, alt-country legend Steve Earle introduced Gill to the band back in 2017, while on PK’s Life is Fine tour. ‘3 Minute Movies’ was recorded over a couple of days back in December 2018 and shows Gill’s formidable song craft in a refreshing new light. 

The anthemic single Hey Underdog is written by Gill, with Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee Jeffrey Steele, Grammy winning songwriter Vicky McGehee and LA based producer Providence David. Hey Underdog celebrates the unassuming figures who have faced adversity, yet boldly triumph over their opposition. Australia has an affinity with cheering on the underdogs, in the sporting arena, the workplace, show business and life in general. 

Gill said, “Jeffrey sent me a text one Friday afternoon to come around to his publishing house in Nashville to write with him, Vicky and Providence. I had an idea to write a song for the underdogs. Jeff whipped out his nylon string guitar and started singing, “Hey Underdog” and we were off to the races. We were able to seamlessly channel all of our thoughts into the song. The internal rhyme and almost ‘rap’ style phrasing in parts of this song made it great fun to write. When we were tracking in the studio, Peter Luscombe suggested a Neil Young ‘Harvest’ feel for the song. Ashley Naylor decided to plug his guitar into a Leslie speaker to play the solo and we got this Beatles style guitar solo. The combination of the band members’ influences, paired with my own, is what made this collaboration so special.”
