– 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."
