"Earthmover" is a 13 track album recorded
at Riversound Studios by Les Woodford. 10 of the
songs on the Album were written by Eve and myself
representing parts of our lives our thoughts and
passions. Five of these songs including: Earthmover,
Coastal Cowboy, Luckiest Land, Colours in the
Sky and Gentleman Jim have won TSA Songwriting
awards with Coastal Cowboy being a Finalist in
the TSA National Songwriting Competition. The
two traditional songs on the Album were chosen
due to their Australian Heritage with their content
being closley related to what we represent in
our Rovers and Drovers Australiana Show.
The Earthmover Album is promoted as an Album about
Australian life experiences because that is exactly
what it is. Both Eve and I are very proud "Aussies"
and we are very passionate about our country's
heritage, it's agricultural and geographical resources.
Releasing the Album at the Tamworth Festival in
2003 to an audience of over 700 people was an
extremely emotional experience for both of us.
From writing the songs, the music to recording
and marketing includes lots of time, energy, money
and belief in yourself so to actually then release
that Album to the rest of the world is like laying
your heart out on the table. Our biggest reward
so far is for people like yourselves to come out
of the audience and say " I loved that song"
or "I can really relate to that song"
we look at each other and smile, we've just gained
the encouragment we need to continue on our journey..
