When he was 16 years old, Liam Brew was asked to write a school essay titled “My Plans After School”. While his mates wrote about uni, surfing and highly paid jobs, Liam had only one goal: to win the Toyota Star Maker Quest in 2009.
At just 18, it was his first time in Star Maker, and he blitzed a top-class field to emerge the winner. Just a few short months later, he was spearheading a whole new generation of country stars, with the release of his debut album, Wild Heart. While his predecessors — artists like Lee Kernaghan, James Blundell, Adam Brand and of course Keith Urban — were the first home-grown contemporary country acts, Liam is the first Gen Y male to launch himself on the country scene.
“I grew up listening to those guys — and a whole lot of American country music like Garth Brooks, Brad Paisley and Kenny Chesney. All of that music has influenced me,” Liam said.
“Now I feel I’m part of a new wave of country music, one that will connect with a new generation of fans, the kids I’ve grown up with.
