  Graham G Tool
And the winner is...Graham G Toole !

It was a gala night at Rooty Hill RSL Club in Sydney on March 18th when the winner of the
2004 Frank Ifield International Spur Award was announced. The award, which FRANK IFIELD presents in conjunction with Galston Country Music Festival, is an encouragement award with a focus on aspiring talent.

Frank explains, "...I first became aware of GRAHAM G TOOLE at Bob Howe's Canterbury Country show last year. He impressed me as a highly professional performer with an excellent choice of songs. This prompted me to ask him for copy of his CD and I was surprised to find he had not released an album at the time. However, he did give me a copy of six tracks he had recorded, produced by Rod McCormack, with a view to completing an album sometime in the future.

After playing the songs, I became more aware of Graham's overall talent which led to my making him the choice for this year's 'International Spur Award'. As part of the award, I released his song That's What Friends Are For in the UK and Europe where it instantly entered their play-list chart at number 20. Hopefully this will inspire him to complete the album so we can enjoy more great songs from this exceptional Australian talent."
