Laid back, easy to listen to, ‘folky/country’… are some of the descriptions that people have used when describing Australian singer/songwriter, Lloyd Back’s music.
Having spent a number of years as lead singer in party band Fat Cow, Lloyd also proved to be a very popular solo entertainer at clubs, pubs, weddings and other functions. However he always had a love of the country music he grew up listening to, and in recent years has concentrated solely on building his career as a country music songwriter and artist.
His songs draw on both his own and other people’s life experiences, and connect with a wide range of people of all ages from many differing walks of life.
Lloyd’s new album (his fifth, all produced by Lindsay Waddington at Kross Kut Records) is titled “Everyone Has a Story”, and is a collection of nine originals and one cover song. The album has been nominated for a Josie Music Award (USA) in the Male Album of the Year category, with Lloyd also being nominated in the Male Rising Star Category.
The first single, and title track of the album, has reached #5 in the Country Songs Top 40, Official Tasmanian and OZCMR Top 40, and International Mainstream Country Music Top 40 charts.
Four tracks from the album have been shortlisted in the 2019 Australian Songwriting Contest, in the Ballad, Country, Songs for Children, and Australia categories.
Lloyd’s previous album, “Travelling With You” (released April 2017) contains eight original songs and covers of three well known Australian songs. It was therefore a huge honor to have the album recognized by America’s National Traditional Country Music Association with the Rural Roots Commission 2018 “Real Country CD of the Year” award.
Lloyd’s regular live performances of his down-to-earth ‘real life’ songs see him steadily building a very strong grass-roots fan base.
