Broken Bow signs Aussie group, The Wolfe Brothers

Friday, April 17, 2020 – Aussie group The Wolfe Brothers signed a record deal with BMG, a subsidiary of Broken Bow Music Group.

The duo also released a new song, "No Brakes," today.

The Wolfe Brothers are a country rock band, composed of Nick and Tom Wolfe. They originally formed the group with childhood friends Brodie Rainbird and Casey Kostiuk. The band came to prominence after being the runners-up of Australia's Got Talent in 2012. The group has had 12 consecutive number 1 radio airplay singles in Australia, according to their label.

"We're drawing from pub rock, from old country, from new country," Nick said of "No Brakes." "Maybe it's a bit confusing, but we do what we do and write what we love."

"This represents the last few years of our journey," Tom said. "It's been quite a long time since there's been an Australian country act who's been a huge, huge crossover," said Nick.

Jon Loba, Executive Vice President of BBR Music Group, said "We are thrilled to welcome one of Australia's truly great artists to the BBR Music Group family; The Wolfe Brothers. Nick and Tom write world-class songs and are incredible live performers. The minute our staff heard their first track "No Brakes" they were in and wanted to be involved. We look forward to partnering with our amazing BMG Australia team to bring their music to the U.S."

The Wolfe Brothers said of the signing, "We are absolutely thrilled to be joining the BBR Music Group/BMG family for the next phase of our career. To be joining a roster that includes Jason Aldean, Dustin Lynch and Lindsay Ell is truly a dream come true for us and with the help of the dynamic and creative teams in the BMG offices around the world we are looking forward to taking our music and our live show internationally. We feel we are creating the best work of our career at present and look forward to the road ahead. We can't wait to see where this journey takes us."

Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: The Lil Smokies provide the perfect antidote – On a night when the world to be falling further apart thanks to coronavirus (this would be the night the NBA postponed the season), there stood The Lil Smokies to at least in some small measure save the day.

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia. But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
