Sunshine and sand for country star

COUNTRY music superstar Adam Brand has decided to make the coast his home after his up and coming tour.

The well known musician released his latest album 'There Will Be Love' last month, and it peaked the charts at 11th position.

The new album is the brain child of Brand's last two years in the United States, primarily spent living in Nashville Tennessee.

After three platinum and five gold albums, Brand's visit to Twin Towns later this month promises to get your feet tapping and head bobbing to his latest tunes.

After spending a few months in Sydney, Brand has decided to leave his feet and toes in the golden sand here on the coast.

"How could you say no to the sunshine and sand," he said.

Brand also appreciates the close proximity he would have to the airport.

He is continuing to 'test out' locations in the areal, to get a feel for where exactly he wants to deliver his larger possessions.

"At the moment I'm a bit of a gypsy, all I have here is a suitcase and my guitar," he said.

"I am living in hotels for now but this is a good place to be."

A modest Brand said he loved performing and was looking forward to his Tweed gig.

He first got a taste of performing when he was just 3 years old.

"My dad was a singer in a band," he said.

"I got on stage and sang how much is that doggy in the window."

The singer said he was more of a performer than a musician, claiming his talent as a musician was mediocre.

However, with more than half a million records sold a few fans are bound to disagree.

To see Brand perform live make sure to check him out at Twin Towns on Friday, September 21.
