Australian balladeer, Jeff Brown will return to the Redlands Modern Country Music Club as the guest artist for its next monthly social on February 5.

Brown will perform from 8.30pm and will have CDs for sale on the night.

As a singer/songwriter Brown said he believed that a good Australian bush ballad told a story that would touch the heart of everyday Australians.

"I grew up listening to home-grown country music," he said.

This and Brown's later involvement in the farming and trucking industries, has resulted an unmistakable authenticity to his song writing and delivery.

Brown released his first album at age 21 in 1997 and is now known as one of the most prolific, well-known, and loved artists in the country.

Brown is a multi-award-winning touring artist and has released seven albums. The latest is entitled More times Than I Remember and was released in 2019. He has won two Tamworth Golden Guitars and is currently a finalist in a number of award categories, which will be decided when the recently postponed Tamworth Country Music Festival takes place.

Brown regularly tours with his wife and young family with his children regularly joining him on stage making the performance a family affair.
