“Lumsden remains a savvy songwriter, with strong melodies and sharp lyrical observations, and Fallow will make fans out of people who would ordinarily turn up their noses at the genre.” – Tim Byron, Sydney Morning Herald
ARIA ARIA Award-winning Australian artist Fanny Lumsden has just released her third studio album, Fallow, on Cooking Vinyl Australia/Red Dirt Road Records, which recently took out Best Country Album at the 2020 ARIA Awards, and swept the field taking home five CMAA Golden Guitar Awards including Album of the year, Female artist of the year, Single of the year (Fierce), Video clip of the year and Alt Country Album of the year and was added to the Australian Music Prize nomination list.
Joining her previous two ARIA nominated and multi Golden Guitar winning albums, Fallow also debuted in the ARIA top ten (+ #1 in Aussie Country) and added to the multitude of awards on Fannys mantle. Along with her husband Dan Stanley Freeman she runs her own Record Label and Production company – Red Dirt Road and hugely successful touring brand – The Country Halls Tour selling out over 130 halls all over Australia, all which is no small feat for a self-managed artist.
Along with her incredible band The Pack, Fanny has established herself as an exuberant performer who combines a high energy show with intimate storytelling delivered with warmth & luscious harmonies, ‘It’s like she’s harnessed the greatest attributes of Gillian Welch and Dolly Parton’ says Chris Familton for The Music.
2020 did not slow Fanny down releasing an album, appearing on Play School Showtime, on the 7:30 Report on ABC, was a guest on Take 5 with Zan Rowe, one of 12 Aussies in Global Music Match, became a Support Act Advocate, joined the RFS, wrote and produced a documentary telling the story of Fallow through the summer of bushfires and recording her album in a stone hut and also managed to pull off a sold-out theatre tour through NSW + ACT in the wake of a pandemic here in Australia.
In her own lane, Fanny is forging a career that is distinctively hers and changing up how ‘things are done’.
