The Wolfe Brothers

Tasmania

The Wolfe Brothers are heading into 2022 on a high and full of optimism after almost 2 years away from
doing what they love most about being musicians – playing their songs live for the fans.
The popular duo has earned themselves a solid reputation for their catchy singles and dynamic live shows.
They constantly push the envelope with their songwriting, and delight fans with their honest approach. Now,
the band are gearing up to tour and promote the release of their fifth studio album – their first international
release through music juggernaut BBR / BMG – and it is a party from start to finish.
When the global pandemic swept across the world, it changed all the band’s plans and extended the
timeframe to deliver their new record. “The pandemic completely changed the trajectory of this album and
for the better,” says Nick Wolfe. “The line-up of songs changed dramatically; songs that would not have even
existed had it not been for lockdown were created. The traditional process got thrown out the window as
songs got written in online co-writes with writers around the world, parts were recorded remotely, and files
sent around and pieced together. What you hear in the final product is a mix of it all. Some of it was recorded
in the studio traditionally, some of it in bedrooms and even wardrobes! When you can’t get to a studio a
wardrobe can make a great DIY vocal booth!”
The release of their fifth studio album Kids On Cassette on 30th July 2021 has definitely struck a chord with
music fans around Australia, and now the 12-track release has garnered the duo an incredible seven
nominations in the 2022 Golden Guitar awards.
Kids On Cassette was the highest chart debut of any of The Wolfe Brothers 5 albums, landing on the ARIA
Official Country Album Chart at #1, the ARIA Official Australian Album Chart at #2 and the ARIA Official All
Genre Chart at #6. An ARIA nomination in the 2021 awards followed for Best Country Album, as did a
American Country Music Association International Award nomination in the Jeff Walker Global Country Artist
Award, alongside artists from the UK, Sweden and Canada.
All of the singles from the album – No Brakes, Anybody Ever, Startin’ Something and Kids On Cassette – have
earned acclaim from fans and critics alike. After achieving 16 consecutive #1 singles in their career it is no
wonder that The Wolfe Brothers were one of the top played artists on Australian Country Radio in 2021, a
pretty impressive title to have.
