Brimming with great new songs that tell quintessentially Australian stories, Our Backyard is the first dedicated collaboration for these amazing entertainers. From the title track to ‘Millionaire’ and ‘Drink’, the music and lyrics reflect the true Australian experience across life, love and friendship.
Known as a relentlessly hardworking performer, Amber has been on the road promoting her 5th studio album Happy Ever After released in September 2016. Her three singles ‘Happy Ever After’, ‘Cheers to the Girls’ and ‘The Lucky One’ were snapped up by country radio hitting the top chart radio and video playlists. The 2015 & 2016 CMC Oz Female Artist of the year and 2015 Golden Guitar Female Artist of the Year continues creating authentic and progressive country music engaging her fans like no other.
Travis Collins, a mainstay in the Australian music landscape, has cemented his footprint as one of Australia’s best-loved country music artists. In 2017 he took home not only his first Golden Guitar but a total of three: Male Artist of the Year, Single of the Year (Just Another Girl) and APRA AMCOS Song of the Year (Call Me Crazy). Two months later, Travis was also awarded three CMC Awards: Australian Video of the Year, Male Artist of the Year, and CMC Oz Artist of the Year. As well-known for his masterful guitar playing and powerhouse vocals as he is for his depth of song-writing and high energy live performances, Travis continues to go from strength to strength with his most recent album Hard Light producing three #1 songs and charting in the ARIA top 20 all-genre charts.
Our Backyard combines the talents and experiences of two great artists to create an Australian narrative familiar to us all. With Amber’s unabashed sentimental vocals and Travis’ true country rock sound Our Backyard captures a sentiment surrounding our relationships and our culture that is guaranteed to resonate with audiences.
