EDITORS’ NOTES

Hailing from Jindabayne, New South Wales, Brad Cox’s self-titled debut takes listeners on a tour of the places that shaped him. They don’t always appear front and center, as on the wistful “Lake House,” a beloved spot Cox longs to share with someone. Sometimes, they exist in the background, as on the breezy “Found My Way Home” or the boisterous “Too Drunk to Drive,” when the thrill of the dark highway isn’t enough to leave behind a warm campfire and friends. Work plays an important role on the album, too: “Water on the Ground” tells an emotional story of drought and its repercussions, while on “This Is Who I Am,” he details working the family farm. In 2018, Cox’s stirring voice helped him become the next aspiring country musician to win the Toyota Star Maker, an award that’s helped boost the careers of Keith Urban and other Australian singers getting their start. The newcomer uses those pipes to pack an emotional punch in the range of stories he shares.
