Singer-songwriter Bradley Hall is from the Pilbara region of Western Australia. He started playing guitar at the age of 15 as a way to pass the time living in remote communities and then while working on mine sites.
His new song, ‘My Heart, My Land’, is a love song to the Australian landscape, with ‘rocks as old as the Dreamtime, this is the land that made me’. It is the story of Hall’s history with the land, and of those working on outback stations, amongst others, but leaves plenty of room for listeners to put themselves in the story too. It is a heartfelt song that uses enough sentiment to convey its message without overindulging. The backing vocals from Golden Guitar winner Amber Lawrence are a lovely complement to Hall’s voice.
‘My Heart, My Land’ is taken from Hall’s new album, Back to Country. The accompanying video is beautifully shot and worth watching more than once.
Back to Country is available now.
