“Peter has a lot of energetic tracks, including Frankie….. A top class album” Deborah Minter, Capnews
2006 Golden Guitar finalist & ACMEC recording artist PETER DENAHY is all smiles with his latest single PEPPERCORN TREE currently spending two weeks at #4 of the Top 30 Country Tracks airplay chart.

Taken from Peter’s self-titled album, his radio success has followed in the footsteps of his previous Top 5 hit WIND THROUGH THE BRIGALOW.

2006 has been an award-winning year for Peter, with his second single PEPPERCORN TREE being named the Victorian & National Country Music Awards Bush Ballad Of The Year. The track was also recognised as a finalist for Heritage Track Of The Year at the CMAA Country Music Awards Of Australia and THE KITCHEN GIRL for Instrumental Of The Year.

He’ll soon be hitting the road touring NSW and Queensland with Anne Kirkpatrick, the daughter of legendary Slim Dusty.

It is fitting that Peter is touring with Anne, as he was part of the Travelling Country Band that travelled with Slim and testament to Pete’s versatility, he wrote one of the songs featured on Slim’s 100th album “Looking Forward, Looking Back” titled ‘The Bloke Who Serves The Beer’- Pete’s version has been included on his latest album.

With underlying tones in his songs of strong rural themes, distinctly Australian – make sure you have a chance to enjoy the music and stories from Peter Denahy when he hits your town.

Peter's current single PEPPERCORN TREE is bearing him fruit - gaining him #27 position on this weeks Top 30 Country Tracks chart
The song is about an old friend of Pete's, Jack Bell. Jack & his Dad used to do a lot of blacksmithing, and as a young man Jack rode countless buckjumpers in his old poley saddle.
"When I arrive, he'll roll a smoke and fetch a drink of tea,
And tell a tale as he plaits a whip in the shade of the peppercorn tree"

ACMEC and RUM Entertainment congratulate Peter Denahy on two Golden Guitar Nominations
Peppercorn Tree - Heritage Song of the Year
The Kitchen Girl - Instrumental of the Year

The finalists were announced yesterday in Sydney, with Peter receiving two nominations in the Country Music Association of Australia's Golden Guitar Awards. The awards will be held at the Tamworth Regional Entertainment Centre, 28 January 2006 during the Tamworth Country Music Festival.

Peter's new single & Golden Guitar nominated track Peppercorn Tree is being released to radio this month on ACMEC Records 'Summer Sampler' distributed through NFS.
You often hear the term "paid your dues", and Peter Denahy has done just that with the best in the business. He toured with Slim and became a member of the Travelling Country Band and is currently touring with Sara Storer, enjoying many gigs with Troy Cassar-Daley and Paul Kelly. All this along with his own performances, has made Pete no stranger to the road.

When he's not touring, Pete enjoys relaxing with his mates. His single Peppercorn Tree, is a great story about one of those times. Pete writes with insight of the characters that make Australia so colourful and the ordinary pastimes of yesterday that are extraordinary links to our today.

Not just a great song, Peppercorn Tree preserves the traditions of the ‘Australian Ballad’ in a contemporary fashion that will see writers like Peter Denahy among the contributors when it comes to songs that take Australians and their tales into the next generation.

Taken from PETER DENAHY'S self-titled album
Radio across Australia have welcomed Peter’s new album and have shown strong support for his first single

This collection of songs shows a mature interpretation, a source of encouragement and regeneration of country's traditions at a time when trends threaten to take country music away from its roots.

"...beneath the comedy façade is a truly serious songwriter and musician....The album really does show the many sides of Peter Denahy, and his touring will give people the opportunity to share his unique talents ....It is a serious business, and Peter Denahy is a seriously talented player."
