Hi Brewn, welcome to LA Music Review! Tell us a little bit about you and your music.

The dynamic Australian band Brewn has been creating a stir over the last few years due to their unique sound and authentic approach to their music and live performances.

The roots-driven singers of Brewn write and perform about true stories that resonate deeply with international audiences on a profound level. Brewn’s music unites people from all walks of life and displays immense pride and passion for their origins.

Comprising lead singer and guitarist Michael Bond, Anthony Barbara on lead guitar, twin brother John Barbara on drums, James Cox on bass, and Billy Gordon on keys, Brewn’s sound captures elements of Australian rock and the finest of the country rock scene. The band’s signature style and sound make them one of the most exciting acts on the live circuit.

Through their energetic live performances, Brewn continues to evolve from a respected pub band to a professional touring act. It was through their vibrant performances and humble songwriting that the band caught the ear of Australian country icon James Blundell. Blundell has been a vocal supporter of Brewn and often includes them as his opening act or as his live backing band at major events like Deni Ute Muster, Country Rocks Sydney, Mount Isa Rodeo, Ground Water, and the Tamworth Country Music Festival. They have also been recruited to perform with the All Australian Girl, Tania Kernaghan, at various shows.

In addition, Brewn has performed and toured with legendary artists such as Tim McGraw, Jimmy Barnes, Thirsty Merc, Lee Kernagan, Adam Brand, and O’shea, amongst many others.

Brewn was then invited to be a part of the “30 Years of Pride: A Tribute to James Blundell” album released by Red Rebel Music.

Continuing to hone their craft as a touring band, Brewn has developed into a well-founded and respected band. It’s further proof of a band that is willing to put in the hard yards and show passion for what they can achieve.

Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration when you were writing this project?

Released on August 4, 2023.Always Calling” is about living with the always-calling voice in your head and fighting against finding some perspective. Lead singer of the band Brewn, Mick Bond, says, “In the process of producing the song, the meaning of it has evolved over time. The song ‘Always Calling’ was originally written about a guy whose heart had been stolen by an exotic dancer. She also danced for others and could never be his one and only. Even knowing this, he could not stop his desire for her to call constantly.”

What lessons would you like to impart with your audience?

After producing the lyric video and sharing the track with others, the band released the song with a message that is much bigger than a simple story.

This is calling, and your inner voice is calling you
A voice inside you you cannot ignore
Follow your inner voice, your alter ego
Chase your desires and dreams
and be who you truly are

What is your favorite part of this body of work?

Throughout the lyric video, someone struggles to block out memories of the person she always thinks about. Listening to your inner voice, the voice that guides you in the direction of your heart’s desires, helps you stay true to yourself.
