JOHN WILLIAMSON will release The Big Red, a twelve track studio album nationally on Friday January 27 2012.
The recording comprises material penned by the modern day poet over the past three years and contains quintessential 'Willo' sounds, with images that capture the country in song, inspirational songs of mateship and romantic ballads that touch the heart.
Released through his recent signing with Warner Music Australia, The Big Red is reflective of the multi-award winning artist's passion for his craft. It reminds all as to why he has remained a success for more than forty years, with tracks on the album sure to become favourites for all Australians domestically or a treasured keepsake for those overseas.
The first single Hang My Hat In Queensland is pure poetry; an autobiographical account of Williamson's life.
Inducted into the Aria Hall of Fame in 2010 and the recipient of more awards than he cares to mention, including a recent nomination for Oz Artist of the Year at the CMC 2012 Music Awards, there is no question that Williamson is the real deal. He stands by what he represents and is unashamedly proud of the country he loves. For this artist, whilst the awards are a nice recognition, there is no doubt it is the reaction from his audience that is most important.
'At last 'The Big Red' is out of the box. I think those who know my music will think 'Yes! This is what we've been waiting for from Willo.' For those who don't know; clear the mind of American influences. This is purely Australian. I hope it makes you as proud as I am of the place,' said Williamson.
Williamson will embark on The Big Red National Tour from February 2012. For more information please visit www.johnwilliamson.com.au
