COWBOYS FROM ALLIGATOR CREEK RIDING HIGH
The latest Australian artist to gain international attention is a completely unknown trio of sibling cowboys from Alligator Creek in Far North Queensland
The Winchester Brothers have received almost no attention in Australia but their independently released CD is making waves in the U.S and Europe.
A writer on the leading American website NoDepression.com described the title song, Black Star Day, as like a country version of Led Zeppelin.
“Confident, relaxed, beautifully arranged & richly musical songs” – Altcountryforum.nl
“Listening to this album gave me the same sort of feeling I got from watching that Kristofferson movie with the Dylan soundtrack, Pat Garret & Billy the Kid”
Meanwhile the U.K.’s number one country music publication MAVERICK has just published its new international issue for November and The Winchester Brothers latest album “Black Star Day” has been very positively
“impressive guitar picking & an excellent all round effort makes this a must listen”
“…The Winchester Brothers are responsible for producing a sound which is definitely theirs and which others will look to for inspiration…
…possessing an innocent feel all about it…impossibly good…truly excellent…
…an organic sound created by a band bursting to the seams with extremely talented siblings…
…’From the Valley of Fear’ finds itself the finest of the lot…
close harmonies on ‘Hallelujah, auld lang syne’ are very good, damn fine fiddling as well….
…this album sounds like it was a lot of fun to make…”
