There is little doubt that Tom Maxwell is one of the leading forces in today’s crop of balladeers. One of just a handful of travelling bush balladeers still on the road full time.
Tom is not only living the dream, he is keeping alive an Australian way of life that has served to enshrine the Australian bush heritage.
Through hard work and sheer determination he has carved his niche in the Australian Country Music industry and has seen his fan base explode in recent times.
Tom has been down plenty of dusty roads, met many characters along the way and heard some of the best yarns to be told and like the balladeers who came before him and built the foundations for today’s country music industry. Tom continues to preserve those stories in music and song.
An accomplished entertainer, Tom has already released 13 successful albums, and has made the finals in many of Australia’s Country Music Awards including the prestigious Star Maker and a five time Golden Guitar finalist with his most recent nomination in 2016 for Bush Ballad of the Year.
In January 2010, Tom was inducted into the Hands of Fame Park in Tamworth, an honour awarded to those for their services and contribution within the Australian country music industry.
Over the past two decades, Tom has been out on the road touring Australia extensively, and today still spends much of his time taking his music from cities to the outback to his many fans.
Tom will be appearing at the Amaroo Tavern Moree on Friday, November 9 at 7.30pm. Tickets are $20 at the door.
