After wowing them in the US, Broken Hill’s favourite country artist, Stephen Rowe, returned home this week to not only launch his new single, “Two Clocks”, but also record a new duet with Australia’s Queen of Country Music, Tania Kernaghan.

Titled, “Lets Fall In Love Again”, the song was co-written by Stephen along with his good friend, Fiona Kernaghan in Los Angeles. It was an easy decision for Stephen to choose Tania as his female singing partner on the song – Tania has been a champion for Stephen and his music from day one. It was Tania who invited a then unknown Stephen to feature on the recording of her smash hit “Yee Ha!” and also to appear in front of the 20,000+ crowd in Tamworth at Bicentennial Park in January to especially perform the song.

It’s been a hectic 6 months for Stephen who kicked off the year with a visit to the Tamworth Country Music Festival. He released his debut album, “Broken Hill”, in February with the title track hitting #27 on the CMC Top 50. He also recently performed to rave reviews at the world famous Los Angeles music venue, The Mint (Bonnie Raitt/Jeff Buckley) along with ARIA Award winner, Tyrone Noonan, Fiona Kernaghan and Brooke Beyan, had a full front page feature in the Barrier Miner newspaper in Broken Hill and has just been named a winner in BLU FM’s Dog Song Competition for his track, “Don’t Kick My Dog”.

Stephen Rowe’s second single, “Two Clocks”, has just hit radio and television and is already gathering rave reviews.

The duet with Tania Kernaghan - “Lets Fall In Love Again” - will be released later this year.
“Broken Hill”
The hottest new name in Australian country and roots music – Stephen Rowe – kicks off his national tour this month in Adelaide in support of his debut album, “Broken Hill”.

Originally from the small outback mining town of Broken Hill, Stephen left school at a young age to pursue a trade as a builder/carpenter. He also raced motocross for Suzuki and was fully sponsored by the local dealership. To keep in shape for motocross he did four years of boxing and believe it or not – he also studied ballet! A rarity for a boy from Broken Hill.

At the age of 19 he left his hometown and moved to Adelaide, where he was offered a two year scholarship to study classical ballet. Stephen went onto an international career in ballet for the next 15 years. While touring with ballet companies, Stephen started writing his own songs. He grew up with traditional country music and classic Aussie and British rock. His inspirations include artists such as Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson, the Beatles, David Bowie, AC/DC and of course, the legendary Slim Dusty.

His debut album, “Broken Hill”, reflects these influences while telling the story of his hometown, his family and his country. It’s a personal journey which engages the listener from start to finish. Co-produced by ALT country star, Anne McCue, “Broken Hill” is country music at it’s coolest and very best.

Now based in California, music is the primary focus of Stephen’s life – but he continues to work as a carpenter. He also explores artistic endeavours through painting and sustains a healthy acting career.

Stephen Rowe’s debut album, “Broken Hill”, is released through Red Rebel Music/MGM Distribution on 3rd February. The title track is currently impacting radio and television now.

“Stephen Rowe is a larrikin, an illywacker and a damn good songwriter who has truly lived out his stories to the hilt. Broken Hill’s prodigal son returns to that red dust from his world travels with wisdom, sensitivity and plenty of laughs”. ANNE McCUE

“Stephen has a great voice and I love the Aussieness of his album”. BILL CHAMBERS
