James Blundell

There are many terms people use when describing James Blundell. Icon. Legend. Controversial. Rebel. The truth is James Blundell is all of these things.

Blundell made a substantial mark on the Australian country music scene from the early 90s, notably through a very successful single, 'Way Out West', recorded with James Reyne and featured on Blundell's 1992 release This Road.

Acknowledged by many as the act that single-handedly shaped modern Australian country music by infusing his influences of John Mellencamp, The Band and The Angels with the storytelling ethos of Slim Dusty and his lyrical insight, sharp wit and empathy for the average working man. This combined with his handsome good looks and country charm ensured there was no stopping his success across all demographics.

James was the first young Australian country act to sign a major record label deal in Nashville, which has since paved the way for the likes of Keith Urban, Catherine Britt and Kasey Chambers. In addition to his own success he has penned hits for Lee Kernaghan, Slim Dusty and Jimmy Little.

He is also the recipient of numerous CMAA Awards, double platinum, platinum and gold sales awards and is a five-time ARIA Award nominee with one win to his name.

Part proceeds to Legacy and RSLWA.
