Born n' Bred Australian Red Dirt CMG Nashville 2012



U.S.A. signed and recording Australian Band Born n’ Bred has been labelled by many, including Steven B. Riley of CMG Records Nashville and Mark Mosley of Sound Control Recording Studios Nashville, as “Red Dirt”. This genre of music, originating in Texas and Oklahoma, is commonly described as ‘Music with attitude’, and is often considered to be a style that closes the gap between Rock and Country. Born n’ Bred were signed to CMG Records Nashville in April 2012 and their debut CD, consisting of 10 original songs, echoes this sentiment yet still has an authentic Australian flavour. Their originality, hard driving rhythms and down to earth lyrics, attributed to them charting on American Radio Direct Charts at # 21 with their first single ‘Someday’.

Born n’ Bred consists of five members, including Paul Colyvan (Redline), Michael Davis (Deck Chairs Overboard), Glenda Bancell (The Crybabies), Steve Perrett (The Blackhill Ramblers) and Nick Economou (The Lost Jackets). All members are seasoned performers who have played pubs, rodeos, festivals and large scale arenas in Australia and the U.S. Although it is hard to compare their unique sound to another Band, it has been said that Born n’ Bred can be likened to Steve Earle, The Waco Brothers and Billy J Shaver. People in the industry have also used the phrase when describing Born n’ Bred as “The Clash doing Johnny Cash”.

Born n’ Bred and CMG Records Nashville, believe their product is worth backing. Nashville well known music industry personality Gordy Collins stated that “After several decades ( I won't say just how many) in the Music and entertainment business, in this town (Nashville Tennessee) and others, I can say it's not often that I get to become part of a project that I feel this good about! And be proud of! I have never met people that are more BORN N' do what they do, and do it so well!” Lynn Bryant, Nashville recording artist states that “It was an honour and a privilege to work with Born n’ Bred. They are the epitome of RED DIRT Music.”

Born n’ Bred are taking bookings at present. Equipped with their own quality instruments and full on and off stage sound and lighting systems, they can accommodate small venues to large outdoor festivals. They also have an extensive range of merchandise, promotional material, venue posters and banners and their touring bus completes the package. In January 2013, during their North West Tour they were the Headline act for the CMG Country Fan Days during the Tamworth Country Music Festival and are now playing in and around Melbourne, Victoria. Born n’ Bred will be available for interstate, Victorian country and Melbourne metro performances until early June 2013 when they head back to the US to perform during the CMA Fan Fest in Nashville, and then on to tour Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas with CMG records. They will be back in Melbourne ready to perform at the end of July 2013. For more information please see contact details.
