Lachlan Bryan’s intelligent lyrics, extraordinary vocal croon and sharp wit have quickly established him as the must-see new alternative country act, defying all expectations of the genre. Lachlan crafts his songs with an authenticity rarely heard in Australian country music circles and scarcely matched in more fashionable genres.
The Melbourne singer songwriter recently signed with Core Music (Sony). His debut album was recorded with acclaimed musician and 2009 & 2010 producer of the year Rod McCormack. The album features an impressive list of guests including Kasey Chambers.
The results embody Lachlan; thoughtful, layered, smart and a little mischievous. The work of a songwriter for a new generation.
