WILLIAM CRIGHTON ANNOUNCES EAST COAST TOUR & 7-INCH VINYL RELEASE
DEBUT ALBUM IT’S ON TO BE RELEASED JANUARY 18, 2013
ABC Music are thrilled to announce the signing of emerging Country/Rock band, The Wolfe Brothers.
2012 has been a big year for The Wolfe Brothers. Hailing from the city of Hobart in Tasmania, the group, comprising of brothers Nick and Tom Wolfe and their childhood friends, Casey Kostiuk and Brodie Rainbird, burst into national spotlight after they appeared on Channel Seven’s mega series Australia’s Got Talent.
The band’s incredible live performances of all original songs, electrified not only the judges and the studio audience but they won over millions of Australians watching from their living rooms every week. It was the Australian public who adopted the band and voted The Wolfe Brothers into 2nd place in the Grand Final of the nationally televised talent competition. An amazing feat for a country rock act. Their powerful live show and consistent touring schedule has also gained the band a fiercely loyal following around Tasmania.
“Excellent musos, excellent songs, excellent showmanship, it’s just real Aussie Country Rock… You deserve to be on this stage,” said Judge Brian McFadden.
Following their success on Australia’s Got Talent, The Wolfe Brothers secured a management deal with Stephen White Management, the company that manages the careers of Australian country music legend Lee Kernaghan and also the multi award-winning sister group The McClymonts.
“One of my criteria in signing an act is that they must be unique, credible and incredible. The Wolfe Brothers are all these things,” says Stephen White.
The Wolfe Brothers have since been invited to be special guests for Lee Kernaghan’s 2013 Beautiful Noise Tour, as well as being his backing band. The band have now also signed with ABC Music, the label home of Kernaghan plus other Australian Country Stars including Sara Storer, McAlister Kemp, Jasmine Rae and Catherine Britt.
“We’re a country rock band who actually make country music that rocks!” laughs Tom Wolfe. And that pretty much sums up what audiences can expect when they see a Wolfe Brothers live show.
The Wolfe Brothers’ debut album, It’s On is released on January 18, 2013 through ABC Music/Universal Music Australia. The album has been mixed and co-produced by Nashville hit-maker Luke Wooten who produced the latest album from US superstar Dierks Bentley as well as a number of tracks on The McClymonts latest album.
The album’s first single ‘It’s On’ is set to be the hottest country party song this summer. The track will be available on iTunes and Play MPE, Monday November 19.
