MEDIA RELEASE: 7th April 2017

A down to earth bunch of good blokes, who tell real stories through their songs about their lives, families, hometown and good times in a way which connects the band with their audience in a very authentic fashion.

It was through their energetic live performances and great songs that the band caught the ear of Australian Country icon, James Blundell. Blundell has been a vocal supporter of Brewn, and often includes them as his opening act or as his live backing band at major events such as the Deni Ute Muster and the Sydney Royal Easter Show. "Brewn are just kickin' ass - they are fantastic. These guys and The Wolfe Brothers are the two bands who've come ahead in leaps and bounds in the last five years - they're both brilliant", said James Blundell.

It was through their work with James Blundell, and proving themselves as a dedicated, hard working and professional act that also caught the attention of Red Rebel Music who agreed with Blundell - that these guys really had something special to offer. "Just talking to the guys we knew that they were the real deal and in music for the right reasons. We're looking forward to working with Brewn for the next phase of their career", said Red Rebel Music's Karen Waters.
"Brewn is excited about the future now we are part of the Red Rebel Music family and we are honoured to work alongside of the great calibre of artists involved with the label", said Brewn's frontman Michael Bond.

Brewn's current album "My Town", has been gathering momentum since it's release with top 10 hits including "Someday" and "My Town" to their credit. "Someday" is currently enjoying a resurgence in popularity since being picked up by the KIX Country Network. "The boys are passionate about music and from my perspective it's refreshing to see people genuinely love what they do for a living", said KIX Country's Program and Content Director, Justin Thomson. 

According to Brewn's Michael Bond, the track "Someday" is all about thinking about the huge possibilities in life and convincing yourself that, after all this hard work, you will get what you want. "Everyone of us have those things we park in the back of our minds that we intend to do someday. This song reflects the desire to leave the daily grind behind and go for those things we keep buried in boxes deep within our psyche".

Brewn will perform at the 2017 Sydney Royal Easter Show on Friday 14th April opening for and backing James Blundell. It will be an awesome show so don't miss it!

Brewn Still Riding The Charts

After rocketing into the Australian Country Tracks Chart with their debut single and title track to their "MY Town" album, in July last year, the track continues to chart on the TMN Country Music Chart at #15 after ten weeks.

To say the guys from BREWN are blown away to the reaction to their track would be a huge understatement. They were hoping for good things when the album was released but the way that radio, press and CMC have fallen behind the song has left them astounded.

BREWN would like to express their sincere gratitude to all those who have played "My Town" and for continuing to do so.
Stand by for the release of their second single from the album in a couple of weeks.



MEDIA RELEASE: 8th October 2015

The title track and first single from BREWN’s “My Town” album continues to 
hold its place in the Australian Country Tracks Top 40 at # 8 after seven weeks in 
the chart, rocketing into the Top 10 in its second week.

The acceptance of both the single and the album have more than thrilled the 
guys from BREWN, this having been their most personal and ambitious project 
yet. Coupled with the release of their video clip, people are gravitating to the 
concept of loving and being proud of “My Town”.

Their ride since the release of the album and single has seen them performing to 
great audiences and being asked to support the Adam Eckersley Band.



MEDIA RELEASE: 15th September 2015

The first single and title track to their latest album “My Town” has shot from #38 to

The magnificent work of Rob Mackay in taking Brewn’s recorded sound to the next 
level has certainly been a huge contributing factor in the success of this single. As 
lead singer Michael Bond says “Rob just gets us and believed in the sound we 
wanted to achieve. Obviously his dedication to the project has been a large 
contributing factor.”

Brewn will shortly be announcing their Tamworth performances and look forward

2016 is in the planning stages now.

Get ready for good times with the release of  ‘My Town’
Living up to their rocking, honest and lively performance reputation, Brewn is taking their music to the next level with the release of their second album ‘My Town’.
Brewn’ is a dynamic Australian-based country rock band whose sound, as well as their story, centres around good times, good music and good ole’ fashioned “blue collar” hard-work. Here is a working class band, writing about their jobs, their cars, their lovers and their hometown, projecting pride in their identity and in a language their fans can understand.

Following the ambitious and soul-searching antics of an Australian boy wishing to escape his country town to find greener pastures, ‘My Town’ embodies a range of melodic stories, which Brewn’ bring to life with energetic rehashing and brash rock and roll stylings.
From the reflective nature of  ‘Someday’ through to the crowd favourite, toe tapping ‘Country Town’ (AKA ‘Funky Town’), ‘My Town’ takes you on a musical journey.
Penned over two years under the Pacific International Music label, the highly acclaimed second album reflects the unique mix of sounds of lead singer Mick Bond, drummer John Barbara, guitarist Anthony Barbara, and bassist Zach Whittaker.

“We wanted to tell a story that most people can relate to - thinking that you need to escape the place you grew up in, then missing it when you eventually leave,” says Mick. “Each song is reminiscent of a different stage of those emotions. We hope that through our music, people can reflect fondly on their own similar experiences.”
For anyone looking to lose themselves in some good honest music and regain a sense of pride in where they come from or where they are going in life, then ‘My Town’ is the album to take you there.
‘My Town’ is the follow up album to “Rusted On” and will be released in August. The first single from the album is the title track “My Town”.




Maton Guitar Endorsement October 2014

They aint’ young and they sure aint’ pretty, but Australian country rock band Brewn are truly a working class band that the average Australian can relate to. They have invested blood, sweat and tears to become professional full-time musicians, juggling the responsibilities of having a young family with maintaining their dream of bringing their musical goals to fruition. The Canberra based band have certainly paid their dues on the live music circuit with more than 200 gigs to boast of, and a quintessentially Australian sound that is synonymous with dusty roads, outback pubs and good old fashioned mateship.  

It echoes another great Australian success story—that of Maton Guitars—which has grown from a small backyard workshop to an iconic national brand, now respected the world over for its quality-handcrafted guitars. Brewn have been passionate devotees of their instruments for some time now, so it is with great pride that today they announce their official endorsement with Maton Guitars. The endorsement has been a long coveted aspiration for the Brewn lads. “Back in 2010 at my first Tamworth Country Music Festival, I remember sitting in the audience of the Maton showcase, thinking what a dream it would be to be endorsed by my favourite guitar brand Maton” said Mick Bond from Brewn.
 
The endorsement could not be timelier for the band as they are poised to release their second album in January 2015. The album, recorded in Hervey Bay with Rob Mackay from Pacific International Music, displays the bands unique brand of storytelling and ever-maturing sound. They are currently deep in preparation for a national tour early next year to coincide with the release.
 
To augment the excitement about this big announcement, today the band received news that they have been confirmed to play at the Tamworth Country Music Festival ‘Maton Showcase’ in the Blazes Auditorium on 22nd January. It seems this all-Australian band are finally receiving their due notability after all these years.
 
Brewn have recently been enjoying a productive working relationship with music management consultants J Music Australia, who are proud to have brokered the deal with Maton. “We have J Music to thank for the progress we have made in the last 12 months” said Bond “they have a real knack for helping muso’s get their act together.
