Graeme Connors will be promoting his 14th album Its All Good when he performs in Byron this Sunday, February 25. Fourteen albums... the Graeme Connors story is a remarkable one.
It started when Graeme toured as the support act for that American icon of country music, Kris Kristofferson. Kris was so impressed with the up and coming youngster that he produced the first Connors album And When Morning Comes.
He has written a succession of hits for himself and for others. The late, great Slim Dusty loved Connors work. Slim recorded 12 of Graemes songs. (Graeme sung Amazing Grace at Slims funeral in 2003.)
But it was the release of the evocative A Little Further North from Graemes first ABC album, North, that really attracted attention to Graemes way with words and melodies.
Graeme counts 12 Golden Guitars, one platinum and three gold albums, plus MO, APRA, ARIA, PPCA awards amongst his many accolades.
So there you are. Graeme Connors has earned his stripes as a great Australian songwriter and recording artist. Connors will perform this Sunday, February 25, at the Byron Community Centre.
The gig starts at 7pm. Tickets are $38.50 and available from the venue (6685 5659).
