Hitting the road this year, one of the things I'm looking forward to the most is meeting other people who love the Caravanning Industry as much I do.
But don't let his age fool you. He's already collaborated with some of Australia's country music greats, Adam Harvey & Graeme Connors; he's had his debut album sit on the ARIA charts; he's performed along side Deni Hines and opened for Lee Kernaghan, Tania Kernaghan and the Wolfe Brothers; and he's made appearances on Studio 10 and the Daily Edition. My feeling is he's only just getting started, but despite his ongoing successes, I reckon he'll keep his adventurous and down to earth demeanour that's required of someone using caravan parks as their play ground.

Kate: Your biggest achievement of 2017?
Angus: Releasing my new album, "Nomad", and having some help from people that I've looked up to for a great amount of time, ever since I was 7 years of age, and having it (the album) spend a couple weeks on the ARIA charts which was pretty cool.
Kate: Wow that's exciting, most exciting plan for 2018?
Angus: Just touring this great country, I'm actually going over to America too, so that will be fun, but just playing as much as I can, doing as many festivals as I can and having a good time.
Kate: Fantastic, how long have you been attending the Tamworth Country Music Festival?
Angus: For the last 11 years?
Kate: And your funniest experience at the Golden Guitar's (awards)?
Angus: Oh, just going around after everyone has had a little too much red wine and hearing some of the stories and catching up with some really good friends.
Kate: I hope it's good red wine, we have the best red wine at the Caravan Industry Conferences, would you recommend the RV lifestyle to other musicians?
Angus: Definitely! It's fantastic, you know the people you meet, the places you see, the ground you've covered, you know, it's fantastic
Kate: Can you give us a 30 second summary of life on your road? Maybe using your guitar?
Angus: With all the travelling I do, I come across alot of road works!
Road works, you gotta merge,
Slow down, shifting back to first
Road works, man with a sign,
Kind of lollipop you don't like
How long does it take to move some dirt?
Your hatin it, they're diggin it
Kate: Oh you've got some relatable content mate! It's been really good to meet you, thanks for performing at our park, and good luck on your tour!
Kate: And I hope to see you on the road mate!
