A BROKEN heart has seen Golden Guitar winning artist Jodie Crosby pen her most personal material to date.
She’s about to release her first solo album and festival goers will be able to see Crosby as they’ve never seen her before.
One half of the award winning duo, The Crosby Sisters, Crosby’s self-titled release takes listeners on a journey through the trials and tribulations of a broken relationship.
There are hints of vulnerability and resilience and also the signature sounds that Crosby herself is revered for.
“The album is like a personal journey,” she said.
“I’m not launching it at the festival but it will be available.
”I’d been writing some songs and it was a bit of a personal journey for me.
“It’s a heartbreak album...i had a broken heart about six years ago and out of that came these songs.
“I co-wrote with some people and then there’s a couple of covers that relate to all of that.”
Crosby released the first single off the new album in 2017.
Hello was written by her son Ethan Crosby-Wolfe and the single has been a charting success.
“It went really well, it was number three in the top 10 tracks for the year on Australian Country Radio,” she said.
“In front of me was Tania Kernaghan and Kasey Chambers, it went really well.”
Fans can also look forward to the release of a new single, Man Like You, in the near future.
As far as the 2018 Tamworth Country Music Festival goes, Crosby is gearing up for a big one.
She’s performing at Gina Timms’ show at Wests’ on Friday, January 19 along with a slot at Coca Cola Country for the locals’ showcase.
This year marks her 33rd Festival and she’s enjoying it more every year.
“The atmosphere is amazing,” she said.
“Just to be surrounded by the music.
“I’ve seen the changes and growth and how Council have facilitated the festival and grown it. They’ve put so many great things in place.”
