Brad Cox releases new single "Lake House" and announces new album

23 March 2018

The 2018 Star Maker winner Brad Cox delivers his moving new single Lake House from his upcoming self-titled debut album – the major prize as the 39th Star Maker winner to be released May 4.

“Lake House is about a woman I met and never saw again,” said Brad. 

Born and raised in Jindabyne NSW, 22-year-old Brad plunged himself into music from the age of 13. A naturally talented singer and guitarist, he started listening to and writing country music at 15.

Brad is influenced by artists who challenge country music with the inspiration for his writing coming from personal experiences or from those around him. “I’m loving music by blokes like Chris Stapleton, Luke Combs and Sturgill Simpson,” said Brad.

The album has spent a long time in Brad’s head; a long time as demos on his phone, and a long time in the hands of producer Matt Fell. “I’m glad I took my time with this record and I am so proud of what it has grown into. Each song has its very own unique sound, and is very much me”.

Album producer Golden Guitar winner Matt Fell said; “Brad Cox doesn't just live and breathe music, his music is him. Every word and every note is the sound of his story and what a story it is.”



 Also launching today is the music video for Lake House. Brad’s backyard was the perfect location, the NSW Snowy Mountains. “For my first ever music video, working with Kris Lewis, Jason Lewis and Laura Webb was a really enjoyable experience.  They did an exceptional job of turning my 2am beer-stained vision into exactly what I saw in my head.” 

Brad’s previously released single Too Drunk To Drive reached #1 on Australia’s KIX Country radio network chart.
