"SONGS FROM HIGHWAY ONE" will be released at the Tamworth Country Music Festival in January 2021 featuring songs about places, people and events, initially inspired by watching a television show about the huge rise in caravan and campervan sales across Australia. Adam said,"I have been lucky enough to travel across this beautiful country for 25 years, and I was really excited to see that so many other people of all ages are getting to experience the amazing feeling and freedom of being on the road". Adam has won eight Golden Guitar awards, achieved Gold and Platinum sales and has sold over half a million albums. He was also awarded the CMA Global Artist Award in Nashville and is the recipient of a Centenary Medal in recognition of his charity work.After a lengthy time away from the road, the ever-popular Adam is raring to go with the "SONGS FROM HIGHWAY ONE" tour featuring the new songs, many of his classic hits as well as Adam’s engaging and entertaining stories from his travels around the country.
Raechel Whitchurch has spent her entire life immersed in Australia’s country music scene. Raised in Broken Hill and Parkes, as well as in a caravan, Whitchurch grew up playing mandolin, guitar, banjo, and keys -and was the primary songwriter -in her family’s travelling band The Lees. They released three albums together, appearing at festivals including Tamworth CMF, Gympie Music Muster and the Adelaide Fringe Festival, before Whitchurch decided to pursue a solo career. It’s been four years since Whitchurch released her debut EP Outlaw, which reached #1 on the Australian Country Albums iTunes Chart. In March this year, she released the single ‘I Found Home’, which peaked at #27 on the The Music Network’s Country Airplay Charts and caught the attention of Compass Bros Records, who have signed Whitchurch to an exclusive distribution agreement. Whitchurch has opened for many major artists including Fanny Lumsden, Wendy Matthews and Shane Nicholson, but a highlight was being asked by iconic Australian country artist Adam Harvey to come on the road as the opening act on his year long “Songs from Highway One” Tour. “I have watched Raechel’s career since she was a kid performing in her family band.” says Harvey. “It’s been fantastic to see her grow as an artist, a singer, and a songwriter. Her latest single demonstrates her real talent, emotion and sincerity.” And it’s this emotion and sincerity that defines Raechel Whitchurch as a writer and an artist –we can’t wait to hear what comes next.
