With a career spanning over twenty years, half a million album sales, gold and platinum albums, and eight Golden Guitar awards, Adam Harvey is one of Australia’s most popular and enduring recording artists. Harvey was presented with the CMA Global Country Artist Award in 2007 and has been awarded a Centenary Medal for his charity work. Harvey is also an Ambassador for the Fred Hollows Foundation, and the McGrath Foundation.
Sony Music Entertainment Australia have released LINDEMAN AGAIN, Adam Harvey’s fourth single from his Songs from Highway One album. The song is a beautiful tribute to his late father - Les Harvey - who died of cancer in 2015.
Adam says "Dad loved the Whitsunday Islands and spent the best years of his life working on a beautiful old charter boat called the Elizabeth.E, which was based in Mackay. I wanted to write this song for many years since dad's passing, but it was still too raw and emotional. This song is very personal to me, and I knew Graeme Connors, who is based in Mackay, would be the perfect writing partner to help me capture the emotion I wanted to convey in the song.
Graeme is an incredible songwriter, and it was a real pleasure to tell this story with him. I have to say, of all the songs I have written, this one is my favourite." The video was produced by multiple award winner Duncan Toombs from The Filmery. The pair travelled to Mackay and spent several days filming around the township, and on the very same boat, with Les' old work mates.
Adam says "This song documents the important moments in my father’s life, and I knew Duncan Toombs was the right man to capture the emotion I wanted to convey in the video clip. He has done an incredible job painting the perfect picture to go with my lyrics. I still get emotional when I watch the video."
Harvey is currently writing a book titled "Tales from the Road", which is a collection of stories from Adam and his country music mates chronicling some of the funny, inspiring and downright scary things that have happened on tour over the years.
Following the outstanding success of his latest album Songs From Highway One, which hit #1 on the ARIA Top 40 Country Albums and #10 on the ARIA Albums (all genres), Harvey spent most of 2021 performing to sell-out crowds across Australia. You can catch him at a town near you on the below dates:
