Brian Cadd has journeyed far and wide across 50 years of the music scene, a true Statesman of songwriting and recording.

 In 1966 Brian Cadd set out on a career that has made him an international songwriting legend. His latest album "Silver City" takes his musical history and consolidates it into a remarkable journey. 

At the time his pop band The Groop was disbanding and his new songwriting trajectory was about to take form through Axiom. Axiom became Australia’s first countryrock group and Glenn Shorrock, who would later go on to form Little River Band, was also a founding member.

In the early 90s Brian spent five years as a member of the legendary Flying Burrito Brothers, the band founded by Gram Parsons in the 60s. These days Brian Cadd is based in Woodstock in upstate New York.

For this performance at the Brunswick Ballroom his band includes Shane Reilly (Lost Ragas) and Geoff "Coxy" Cox (Coxy from the Roxy and TV host of "Coxy's Big Break", Channel 7) on drums as well as guitarist Tony Naylor and Paul Cartwrite.

Brian Cadd is an amazing live performer, this show is not to be missed!

In his own words: 

"Signed to Capitol Records in the U.S. in 1975, (The Band’s actual label!), I originally had choices of producers who were involved with The Eagles and similar country rock acts. My management and Capitol assigned me Robert Appere, who had just had the big hit “Laughter in the Rain” by Neil Sedaka. Writing on the wall. Super ‘pop’. Two albums later I headed off into a writing and production career which did really well for me for 15 years. During that time I played hundreds of sessions with lots of the players that I had always hoped to be associated with. Randy Meisner and Tim Schmidt from the Eagles, Billy Payne and Richie Hayward from Little Feat as well as so many great country rock players from The Dillards, Leon Russell and Jim Keltner thru to Al Perkins. Then my journey took me to Nashville. I built a studio which culminated in my being asked to join The Flying Burrito Brothers…one of the very acts who drove the creation of AXIOM. This lasted several years and I toured the U.S. and Europe with them, meeting and playing with many other country rock folks from Poco, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and others. I eventually returned to Australia but knew that I would never be satisfied until I gave the U.S one last crack…but on MY musical terms. Finally, a couple of years ago, I was in Nashville and spent time with Mark Moffatt. We decided that he should produce an Americana album with me. As he introduced me to this exciting “new” genre, I realized that, actually, it was an emulation of the OLD genre that I always had in my head…but never really achieved as an artist. When we eventually made the album, Mark assembled a wonderful team of musicians, all of whom were on the Americana side of ‘country’, led by the legendary Dan Dugmore on steel and guitar. Dan has forever been revered for his work in country rock, as far back as seminal recordings and touring with Linda Ronstadt and James Taylor. Furthermore, I was treated as just “the singer” in the sessions and the musicians and Mark took the songs of mine that Mark had chosen from the hundreds that I sent him, and played them just like the band in my head. I let them record them as they wanted them to be played. We recorded the whole album in 3 days of sessions, apart from vocals and mixing. This album is the result of finally arriving where I had always wanted to be musically. From that night in the Easybeats’ flat, through Axiom, my solo years, Los Angeles and Nashville with the Flying Burrito Brothers, I realize now that this has indeed been an actual journey. So many things have happened to me that could not have been accidental. Events and people and songs that led me ultimately to those days in that studio with that band of musicians. So, fifty years on, I’ve gotten there!" Brian Cadd, Woodstock NY Jan 2019
