Great photo Graeme.

Looking good Graeme.

I love the black and white photos.

First met Graeme at Chandlers in Bundaberg when he was promoting North and had the opportunity to cook him bacon and eggs for breakfast when he came to visit us at 4BU in Bundaberg a couple of years later. Have a couple of signed posters which I cherish and looking forward to seeing in Tamworth in January 2023. Have photos of both, love this man and his music.

Different background behind you GC and it could be the Return all over again ♥️

Love him.. Come back to Melbourne please.....

Spent some time with photographer Luke Sartor in Brisbane this week. I realized I hadn’t been in front of a camera since my last album ‘from the back country’. Luke was a real pleasure to work with. He has a knack for capturing my best side 😉 and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Of course new photos always come before new projects so watch this space. GC ... See MoreSee Less

Anyone with a love of Australian Country Music (and social media access) will be aware by now that the delayed 40th year celebration of the Gympie Muster was a massive and outstanding success.

The photographs from all venues show capacity crowds and a level of enthusiasm that was palpable.

I can only add my personal thanks to APEX, the Muster management team, and the volunteers, for providing the framework that made Amamoor 2022 so memorable.

From my acoustic show in the Muster Club on Friday, the Conversation hour shared with Travis Collins and the ever delightful Felicity on Saturday afternoon, to my sunset show main stage on Saturday evening, one good experience flowed to the next.

As always, my band and crew were there 100% for me combined with the accommodation, the media and the fans I’m still in some sort of euphoric zone.

I look forward to seeing you on the road somewhere or at my next Gympie Music Muster… GC

It was an excellent Muster!! I loved your concert, as usual! And your song was played at the Queensland Country Bank Stadium last Saturday night at the winning Cowboys game! “Cowboys are my team and it’s my dream to see them at the top!” Again.

We throuley enjoyed your shows .

BIO

Bio

After more than 40 years in the Australian music industry, 19 albums, walls and mantelpieces full of awards, you’d be forgiven for asking Country Music singer/songwriter Graeme Connors, “Why? Why continue with song writing?”.

Albeit blunt, that question is met with laughter and humility… “I know it sounds ridiculous, but the truth is, I’m still searching for the perfect song.”

The perfect song, by Connors’ definition, has the perfect combination of lyric and melody. It’s a song that has amazing impact. It connects with people- it has a unifying power for a whole crowd.

Many would argue that his ‘perfect song’ hit the airways 30 years ago in 1988 with the release of ‘A Little Further North Each Year’ from his breakthrough album North. North was a huge success and went on to sell over 140,000 units in Australia. A success that came 12 years after the release of his debut album.

In 1974, at the age of 18, Connors opened for American singer/songwriter, Kris Kristofferson during his Australian tour. Kris was so impressed with young Connors, that he took him into the recording studio to produce his 1976 debut album And When Morning Comes.

As a songwriter, Graeme Connors has written an extensive and impressive catalogue of songs for other artists including John Denver, Jon English and Slim Dusty. He became a favoured songwriter of the late Slim Dusty, who recorded 12 of his songs including the 1989 Song of the Year, ‘We’ve Done Us Proud’, winning Connors the first of 14 Golden Guitars. Connors enjoyed a long musical friendship with the Country Music great. When he passed away in 2003 Connors was invited by his Slims wife Joy to sing ‘Amazing Grace’ at his state funeral.

Unlike many modern-day songwriters, Connors has that rare ability to simplify complex ideas, reflect on serious issues with a wry smile, and combine philosophy and humour in a way that regularly produces an approving ‘yep, that’s me’ nod from the listener. The ‘yep, that’s me’ effect is part gift, part the result of a lifetime honing his craft as a wordsmith (64 years and counting) and the rest, a genuine understanding of his subject matter.

In celebration of his 60th birthday in 2016, Connors released his career retrospective album, 60 Summers: Ultimate Collection. 60 Summers is a mixture of songs from the very beginning of his career through landmark albums such as The Return, The Road Less Travelled, This Is Life, The Moment and Still Walking. The album debuted at #1 on the ARIA Country Album Chart and the lead single, also titled ‘60 Summers’, spent three weeks at #1 on The Music Network Official Country Airplay chart.

Following the success of 60 Summers, Connors was inducted into the prestigious Roll of Renown (Australia’s Country Music Hall of Fame) in 2017 for his contribution to Australian Country Music. His name immortalised in stone in Tamworth, the home of Australian Country Music.

Successes aside, Connors believes in the saying, “you’re only as good as your last show”. And it’s that mentality that has kept him driven and relevant in an everchanging and competitive industry. He treats each new album in isolation – a new opportunity to better himself in both song writing and producing.

Graeme’s most recent album, from the backcountry, produced with multi award-winning Producer Matt Fell was released in 2018 and combines Graeme’s signature Country sound with elements of rock, blues and roots.
And, in that typical unassuming Connors way, he smiles and hints that ‘the perfect song’ could very well be ‘from the backcountry’.
