The Wolfe Brothers kick off their Startin’ Something national tour with two wins at the Golden Guitars

270

The Wolfe Brothers celebrated the start of their Startin’ Something national run with a massive Tamworth Country Music Festival last week, topping it off with two incredible wins at the Australian Country Music Awards. They took home Golden Guitars for Capital News Group or Duo of the Year and Contemporary Country Album of the Year for their latest release KIDS ON CASSETTE. Add to that a huge headline show at the legendary Longyard Hotel, then the boys headed to Victoria to the sold-out Gippsland Country Music Festival. The jam-packed week is just a taste of what is to come for the duo who have announced more tour dates on their Startin’ Something tour which will see them perform a swag of festival dates and their own headline shows throughout Australian for the rest of 2022.

After a long hiatus of not touring due to the pandemic, the duo cannot wait to get back out on the road. “We love playing live and we are booking as many shows and festivals as we can to play all the new songs from KIDS ON CASSETTE to as many people as possible,” says Nick Wolfe. “We recently released What You Make It as the fifth single off the album. So far, all of the previous four singles reached #1 on the National Country Music Chart and we are hoping this new one also does well.”

What You Make It is what Nick and Tom Wolfe see as the classic Wolfe Brothers song and was penned with long-time mate Phil Barton at Nick’s kitchen table one day while he was visiting from Nashville. It is a catchy track and has already been embraced by fans. The single hit #7 on the Country Airplay Charts this week.

A Ford is just Ford and there’s a million others like it, but add up all the miles and there’s some history behind it, we’ve sure had our adventures, she’s the one I learnt to drive in, that date night first kiss back seat I learned so much about life in…

“We’ve written many songs with Phil and usually due to our shared love of big anthems, we usually end up shooting for something in that zone,” says Nick. “It was really nice to write something in a different headspace with Phil this time. In many ways this is my favourite lyric on the record. It talks about how things are just things until you attach a memory to them, and then simple objects or places can come to mean so much more. If you’ve followed our band for a while and know our history, I think you’ll see how honest and ‘us’ this lyric is.”

With the reputation of being one of the hardest working bands in the land, the brothers used the down time that was imposed by the pandemic earlier this year to record a new album, this time with producer Rod McCormack. The album, which will be their sixth studio record, is planned for an early 2023 release.

Don’t miss The Wolfe Brothers live at one of their upcoming shows. Tickets are on sale now. The Wolfe Brothers latest single, What You Make It, is at radio now. The Wolfe Brothers fifth studio album Kids on Cassette is out now internationally through BBR Music / BMG.
