Amber Lawrence & Travis Collins - Our Backyard Tour
Golden Guitar winners Amber Lawrence and Travis Collins are hitting the touring trail with their first collaborative EP Our Backyard.
Brimming with great new songs that tell quintessentially Australian stories, Our Backyard is the first dedicated collaboration for these amazing entertainers. From the title track to ‘Millionaire’ and ‘Drink’, the music and lyrics reflect the true Australian experience across life, love and friendship.
With both coming off solo album releases, Amber and Travis decided that now was the best time to combine their talents and dedicate their efforts to creating a genuinely enjoyable album. “At the moment our careers are both going well and having some down time in between our next solo albums we thought it was time to have a little fun and throw caution to the wind”, says Amber. Friends since 2004 when they bonded over being the only Sydneysiders at the College of Country Music (now Academy of Country Music), Amber and Travis wanted to create music that was more than simple duets but a true collaboration containing the essence of both artists; two distinct voices coming together. Our Backyard is the incredible result with honest, authentic lyrics and catchy, at times haunting music.
Known as a relentlessly hardworking performer, Amber has been on the road promoting her 5th studio album Happy Ever After released in September 2016. Her three singles ‘Happy Ever After’, ‘Cheers to the Girls’ and ‘The Lucky One’ were snapped up by country radio hitting the top chart radio and video playlists. The 2015 & 2016 CMC Oz Female Artist of the year and 2015 Golden Guitar Female Artist of the Year continues creating authentic and progressive country music engaging her fans like no other.
