Great singer songwriter Kev Carmody grew up mustering cattle and cutting cane, and listening to old 78 records of country and classical music.
Kev Carmody has become known as the ‘Aboriginal Bob Dylan’ for his story songs that encompass so much human drama.
Many of his songs are regarded now as Australian classics, and have been recorded by other artists like Paul Kelly, The Waifs and Missy Higgins.
Kev is spending a lot of time in his beloved vege garden these days, but he’s also in his recording studio, putting together some new CDs – from unrecorded songs he’s written that go back to the sixties.
These new CDs will hopefully be released by the end of this year.
