Australian Country rock act – Brewn - has been creating quite a stir over the last few years thanks to their unique sound and authentic approach to their music and performances.
A down to earth bunch of good blokes - Brewn sing about real life tales - that deeply resonate on a profound level with real people. Brewn’s music unites people from all walks of life – and display immense pride and passion in their roots.
Comprising lead singer and guitarist, Michael Bond, twin brothers – John and Anthony Barbara - on drums and guitar, Zack Whittaker on bass and latest recruit, Bob Harvey on guitar – Brewn’s sound captures elements of country rock and the best from the Aussie pub rock scene. The band’s signature style makes them one of the most exciting acts on the live circuit.
The current line up has seen Brewn evolve from a respected bar band to professional touring act. It was through their energetic live performances that the band caught the ear of Australian Country Icon, James Blundell. Blundell has been a vocal supporter of Brewn, and often includes them as his opening act or as his live backing band at major events such as the Deni Ute Muster and the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
In the early years – Brewn gathered a strong following working the local bar scene. Always longing for something more - they realised quickly that to make it - they needed to separate themselves from the other bands playing the same venues. It was then, Brewn, decided to write about what they know and become an original act in their own right.
In 2010, Brewn released their first EP, Bear Country Road, which won an award at the Canberra Country Music Festival for Best EP.
The following year, the band released it’s debut album, Rusted On. The album received overwhelmingly positive reviews from both fans and critics alike and showcased a combination of polished and authentic Australian Country that made it a winner in the hearts of many. Rusted On also won an award for Best Production at the Canberra Country Music Festival.
In 2015 the guys hit the studio with respected producer, Robert Mackay to record My Town. The album has already spawned two top ten singles in Someday and My Town. A third single is slated for release at the end of June 2017.
Proving themselves as dedicated, hard working and professional via their work with James Blundell, Brewn recently caught the attention of Red Rebel Music who agreed with Blundell – that these guys have something special to offer. They joined forces in April 2017 and are currently working on a range of exciting projects and releases together.
Continuing to grow as a solid act, Brewn has risen from bar band to well-rounded and respected country act. It’s further proof of a band that is willing to put in the hard yards and passion and what they can achieve.
