ABC Music Welcome Baylou


ABC Music are thrilled to announce the signing of new country recording artists, Baylou.

Baylou are sister duo Victoria and Barb Baillie.

Victoria Baillie is already a highly respected recording artist in her own right, having won a Golden Guitar for “Best New Talent” at the 2010 Country Music Awards of Australia. She also has four top #10 music videos on the Country Music Channel to her credit.

Barb Baillie has been an integral part of Victoria’s solo career as a guitarist and backing vocalist for most of her live shows and recordings and has toured as a musician with leading artists Adam Harvey, Beccy Cole and Troy Cassar-Daley.

“As a duo, Baylou will bring an exciting and fresh new mainstream country sound to the Australian Country Music market with the backing of ABC Music and our partners Universal Music,” says Robert Patterson, Head of ABC Music.

Baylou join a Country roster at ABC Music which includes leading Australian acts Lee Kernaghan, Sara Storer, McAlister Kemp, Jasmine Rae, Catherine Britt, Steve Forde, Peter McWhirter and Corey Colum, plus international stars Craig Campbell, Doc Walker, Dean Brody and Emerson Drive.

“After working hard for many years in the music industry, we are thrilled that ABC Music have decided to support our new project, Baylou. We have always wanted to work together as sisters and now with the ABC behind us, it really is a dream come true,” said Victoria and Barb Baillie.

To discover Baylou for yourself, head to where you can listen to their first recording ‘Thinkin’ About Drinkin’ About You’ and join their mailing list and facebook page.

Baylou’s first official performance as ABC Music recording artists takes place this weekend at the Tullibigeal Picnic races, supporting ARIA Country Album chart toppers McAlister Kemp as they help celebrate Ray Hadley’s 30 Years In Radio.

Baylou have recorded their debut EP with chart topping Australian producer Craig Portelis (Shortstack, Shannon Noll, Human Nature, Deni Hines, David Campbell).
