|There is no denying that after more than forty years in the music industry,
John Williamson is truly an Australian icon. John released his new album
“A Hell of Career” in July 2013 and is now touring Australia performing
his biggest hits.
It is hard to describe John Williamson and his music without thinking that
you have left something out or underrated his contribution and achievements.
How do you sum up an artist who has captured a country in song and had
such a successful career in one of the most cutthroat industries around?
It's an almost impossible task.
Very few artists have experienced and earned the longevity of such a career
as John Williamson. It's quite rare but when you review his albums and songs
you can see why.
After 43 years in the music industry, touring continuously for that period,
John's career is stronger than ever and he is still writing and recording new songs.
But during this time, he has shunned celebrity and resisted offers to take his music
to the international stage, preferring to stay true to his passion: Australia.
An ARIA Hall of Fame member, John Williamson has won 3 ARIA Awards, 4 APRA
Awards, 8 TSA Awards, 8 MO Awards, 24 Golden Guitar Awards and sold more than
4 million albums in Australia earning numerous GOLD and PLATINUM Records. On
Australia Day 1992, Williamson was made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM)
"for service to Australian country music and in stimulating awareness of conservation issues".
John is not only an artist of unbelievable musical poetry but also a man of integrity. He
has always stood firm to his own beliefs and his courage of his conviction regardless
of the outcome and without regrets. He is truly proud of his country and stands and
sings tall with each note.
John Williamson is without question, an Australian icon. His voice and sound are as
recognisable and important to Australia as the Southern Cross is to the flag. He's performed
at some of Australia's most historic and nation stopping events, and to battlers across this
vast country. His songs and music are simply for everyone.

|With Rachel's amazing fiddle solos and ability, to Robbie's breathtaking guitar skills and lead breaks, to Sara's charismatic and energetic bass playing, combined with their strong, warm vocal harmonies, you get the unique sounds and talent of this family band "The Bostocks".
Recent times have been extraordinary for the all-sibling group. The band were awarded with a prestigious Australian Songwriting Award for their song ‘Another Lifetime’ from their brand new studio album (The Great Unknown 2014). In previous years the group have been nominated for Golden Guitar Awards and they also took out Instrumental of the year at the Queensland Country Music Awards. Not to mention picking up numerous Golden Fiddle Awards. Their music is infectious as is their stage presence and always leaves the audiences wanting more.
Hailing from Queensland, this band of talented siblings began their musical journey at tender ages, performing at pubs throughout rural Australia. In 1998 the group attended the Tamworth Country Music Festival for the first time and have been going back ever since to perform. Since then they have been awarded for their hard work during their visits and are gaining much deserved recognition.
Some highlight concerts The Bostocks have performed at in recent years have been: The Gympie Music Muster, The Port Fairy Folk Festival, The Mt Isa Rodeo, The Tauranga Food & Wine Festival in New Zealand and The Stars Under the Stars Concert in New Zealand which saw them perform to thousands.
