Beccy Cole + Libby O’Donovan

For over 25 years, Beccy Cole has been delighting Australian music fans with her unique brand of true entertainment. The South Australian star’s glowing warmth, husky tones, bawdy sense of humour and hundred-watt smile have helped make Beccy one of the nation’s best-loved and most celebrated artists.

With ten Golden Guitars (Country Music Awards of Australia) to her name (including four for FemaleArtist of the Year), as well as multiple ARIA Top 10 Country and Top 40 Mainstream albums, a Top 10 DVD, three gold-certified releases, and more than a dozen No.1 Australian country singles, Beccy Cole is one of Australia’s most successful singer songwriters.

She is also a most sought after live performer, having a reputation for bringing an audience to fever pitch and quite often, stomach clutching laughter! Beccy Cole’s latest album, ‘Lioness’ is nothing short of stunning. A collection of self-penned,
personal and poignant songs perfectly displaying Beccy’s strength of character, huge heart and razor sharp wit. In an Australian first, Beccy procured the talents of some of Australia’s finest female musicians to make the only ever 100% female produced album. Produced by Julz Parker, known best for her amazing guitar work in Australian award winning band, Hussy Hicks, this is a Beccy Cole album with a new sound, a new band and a new outlook on life beyond forty.

Following the successful 2017 release ‘The Great Country Songbook Volume 2,’ with good mate, Adam Harvey, ‘Lioness’ is Beccy’s 12th album release and a good indication that Beccy Cole is still in for the long haul.

A self-confessed ‘gig pig’, Beccy Cole is at her happiest on the road and entertaining Australian audiences. Whether singing in front of (but not for) the American President, entertaining Australian troops in the Middle East or at the RSL of a small rural town, Beccy has always given her all and we imagine, always will! Beccy Cole is the real deal, a working mother, a comedienne, an author, a passionate supporter of Aussie Rules Football and as honest, funny and
genuine in real life as she comes across on stage.

Her ability to laugh at herself and write her songs and tell her stories with such brazen truth is refreshing and most of all, entertaining. Beccy Cole leaves an indelible impression.
