Twelve-time Golden Guitar Winner and multiple ARIA nominee, Adam Brand, continues his run of achievements with his latest album, ‘My Side Of The Street’, debuting at #5 on the ARIA Australian Top 100 Albums Chart, and #1 on the ARIA Australian Top 40 Country Albums Chart.


Says Adam: “I'm truly humbled and thankful to my awesome fans for supporting me so loyally over the years. To debut at #5 on the ARIA mainstream charts and #1 on the Country charts is more than I could have hoped for. I'm so excited to take this album on the road for the My Side of the Street Tour”


Coinciding with the news of Adam’s latest chart success comes the announcement of his new single ‘Hearts I Leave Behind’, the follow up to his #1 CMC chart single ‘What Your Love Looks Like’. ‘Hearts I Leave Behind’ once again highlights Adam’s knack for delivering heartfelt melody combined with the universal message of discovering one’s true self and the effect that has on others. In ‘Hearts I Leave Behind’ he sings ‘I wanna roll on a road of my own design.’


‘My Side Of The Street’ was produced by Adam’s long-time collaborator Craig Porteils (Guns n Roses, Billy Idol, Guy Sebastian) and is a 13-track long-player that features Jasmine Rae on ‘Quit This Time’ and closes out with ‘Most People I Know Think That I’m Crazy’, made famous by Billy Thorpe & The Aztecs.

Having toured locally with the likes of Jimmy Barnes, Ian Moss and James Reyne and across the US with Taylor Swift, Adam and his band return to the stages across Australia, in September and October, for his ‘My Side Of The Street’ National Tour.
