Lachlan Bryan’s heart is steeped in the drama and imagery of country, roots, and Americana music. An Australia-based songwriter with true authenticity, Bryan’s songs are draped with dark characters, back stories, and sub plots flavored with dustbowl balladry, old school country, and nu-folk undertones. Together with his band The Wildes, Bryan has built a genre-defying catalog beginning with 2009’s Ballad of a Young Married Man. The new album, Black Coffee, has garnered glowing reviews, packed houses, and a slew of awards and nominations in Bryan’s homeland this year. It was awarded this year’s Golden Guitar for Best Alternative Country Album at the 2014 Country Music Awards of Australia.
“Black Coffee transcends expectations and sets the new standard in roots and Americana music in Australia. We knew it was going to be good, but this is an exceptional album.” ~ Adam Simon, Rolling Stone
