The debut album from singer-songwriter Angus Gill, Nomad, will cement him in the hearts and minds of Australian country music fans.
Although he hasn’t even reached the age of 20, Gill’s songwriting themes and vocals are mature beyond his years. This is an album that is deeply rooted in pure country with an overarching theme of journeys, making it the perfect roadtrip companion.
Nomad is an album for those who love the road and a good story song, but there is a track for everyone, with younger listeners catered to with songs including Young Wheels Down An Old Road and P Plater. The 19-year- old has not only co-written all the songs with the cream of the crop of the Australian country music scene, including Adam Harvey, Gina Jeffreys, Luke O’Shea and Kevin Bennett, he has also produced all 13 tracks on this debut album.
The album features Angus teaming up with Kevin Bennett and Amos Morris on Staring Out The Back of a Car dealing with the tragedy of the Stolen Generation and he duets with Adam Harvey on P Plater, a track dealing with the realities of young drivers combining Angus and Adam’s senses of humour. Angus was a grand finalist in the prestigious 2017 Toyota Star Maker competition and is a three-time CMAA Academy of Country Music graduate.
The first single, Roadworks, is a crowd and radio favourite and sets the scene for the album. Nomad is
sure to be the first of many albums to come from this young artist.
