Award winning singer-songwriter Angus Gill returns with the release today of his brand new album ‘Welcome To My Heart’ featuring second single ‘Origins’.
Angus will showcase ‘Welcome To My Heart’ at album launch shows in Port Macquarie (Glasshouse, September 20), Tamworth (Citysider, September 21) and Sydney (Lazybones Lounge, Marrickville, October 13).
The 14 songs on ‘Welcome To My Heart’ include a duet with country music legend James Blundell called ‘Doesn’t Mean I Don’t Believe’, as well as a co-write with industry icon Graeme Connors on the song ‘Don’t Care How Long It Takes’. The CD version of the album also includes two bonus tracks.
James Blundell said, “When I first heard the song (Doesn’t Mean I Don’t Believe), I thought there you go, at 21 years of age this guy is actually asking questions that matter. I thought it was a brilliant song, which is why it was a pleasure to sing it with Angus. I think very highly of what he’s doing.”
Gaining a reputation for his perceptive songwriting, new single ‘Origins’ ties the album’s theme of family and home together.
Angus said, “I was thinking back to my childhood memories and the house that I grew up in, the abundance of photo albums showing me learning to play guitar, the mini concerts I held in the backyard, tearing up Dad’s lawn on the PW50, getting my hands dirty building our herb garden and repairing the chicken pen when the foxes got too close. That’s the genesis, the foundation, the fabric of my existence, it’s where I come from, it’s my Origins.”
‘Welcome To My Heart’ was produced by Angus with multi-instrumentalist Matt Fell working with him to co-produce a couple of songs.
Angus has recently released a podcast also titled ‘Origins’ that you can listen to here. The ‘Origins’ podcast features a special guest each episode and explores the album’s theme of family and home. ‘Origins’ takes Angus back behind the microphone as an interviewer, a skill learnt as a presenter on 2WAY FM 103.9 in Wauchope.
On September 30 Angus will be opening for US Country Superstar Kris Kristofferson at his Saddles, Mt White show, and will also be playing his own shows on the following dates:
