Award-winning Australian country artist Fanny Lumsden has just released her third studio album, Fallow, an indelible collection of stories that features some of her most intimate song-writing to date, on Red Dirt Road Records/Cooking Vinyl Australia.
Recorded in the Snowy mountains in a stone hut, Fallow ‘is a breakthrough record for Lumsden’ (Chris Mathieson, SMH) with it debuting at number 10 on the all genres ARIA chart and receiving rave reviews across the board. Fallow is certainly an album providing ‘the balm that is just right for these times.’ (Jolene).
Hailing from Tooma in the Snowy Mountains of Australia, Lumsden has racked up two ARIA (Like the BRITs) nominated Albums, three ARIA Chart-topping album, three Golden Guitars Awards, an AIR award, a CMC Award, her own Record Label – Red Dirt Road Records – and her and her husband and business partner Dan Stanley Freemans, own hugely successful touring brand – The Country Halls Tour, which is no small feat for a self-managed artist.
Along with her incredible band – the Prawn Stars, Fanny has established herself as an exuberant performer with high energy show that somehow successfully manages to combines totem tennis, synchronized swimming with intimate storytelling delivered with luscious harmonies,
‘It’s like she’s harnessed the greatest attributes of Gillian Welch and Dolly Parton’ says Chris Familton for The Music.
In her own lane, Fanny is forging a career that is distinctly hers and changing up how ‘things are done’. ‘Lumsden is a songwriter who knows exactly what she wants to say and how she wants to present herself and her art’ (Andrew McMillian, The Australian)
‘Lumsden remains a savvy songwriter, with strong melodies and sharp lyrical observations, and Fallow will make fans out of people who would ordinarily turn up their noses at the genre.’ **** 4 STARS – Tim Byron, Sydney Morning Herald
