Traditional Australian Country Music artist Jeff Brown, believes that a good Bush Ballad tells a story that will touch the heart of everyday Aussies.
Since his early childhood, Jeff Brown has had a love for Australian Bush Ballad music, having grown up in a household where some of the great old pioneers of Australian and American country was the only music played.
In 1997, at the age of 21, Jeff recorded and released his first album “I Remember Gordon Parsons” as a tribute to Gordon. Jeff’s talents were recognised when he won the Stan Coster Memorial Bush Ballad Award at the Fosters Battle of the Bush during the Tamworth Festival in 1998. This same year, Jeff toured the country with the legendary “Brian Young Show” for 4 months, an experience which helped mould him into the successful entertainer that he is today.
Jeff was placed as one of the “final five” in the prestigious Golden Guitar Awards at the Tamworth Country Music Festival in 1999 with the track “The Old GP” written by Ian Quinn. On releasing his second album “Poverty Liner” in 2003, Jeff was awarded a place in the “final five” once again, with the single “The Ghost Of Three Rivers” by Keith Jamieson.
In 2005, Jeff released his third album “Mate I’m Feelin’ Lucky” and won the Golden Guitar Award for Bush Ballad of the Year with the track “Where The Yellow Kapocks Bloom” penned by Wave Jackson.
2007 saw the release of Jeff’s 4th Album “Harvest Time Again” which won “Album of the Year” at the Bungendore Stan Coster Memorial Bush Ballad Awards. The final track on this album “In The Wings of the Yard” written by Kelly and Marion Dixon and Jeff, reached the finals at the 2008 Tamworth Golden Guitar Awards for Bush Ballad of the Year.
Jeff has now released his 5th album “Hard To Let Go” which was produced by Stuie French at Swingin Doors Sudios. The album has been a great success with Jeff winning a Golden Guitar at the 42nd CMAA Country Music Awards of Australia for “Bush Ballad of the Year” with the song “I Love Australia” written by Keith Jamieson. Jeff also won “Male Vocalist of the Year” and “Album of the Year” at the 2014 Stan Coster Memorial Australian Bush Ballad Awards.
With farming held close to his heart and personal involvement with the transport industry, Jeff relates to the songs that he sings and delivers them with confidence and sincerity. Jeff has stuck to the Bush Ballad music with a passion and his easy listening voice adds a fresh approach to them.
