Tom Curtain – Entertainer
A horse - breaker by profession, Tom was raised on a property at Kingaroy in South East Queensland, and bases himself between the Northern Territory and Western Australia.
Tom discovered his passion for music while working on Mt Sanford Station in the NT. Here he worked with head stockman and recording country music artist Martin Oakes, who encouraged him to pick up a guitar and start writing songs about his experiences of living and working in outback Australia.
What started out as some fun singing around the campfire and in the old corrugated iron shower, led to the release of his award-winning album ‘Smack Bang!’ The song vividly depicts life on a station in the Top End and went to No. 1 in the Australian Country Music Charts for several weeks.
Tom released his second critically acclaimed album ‘Heatwave’ in 2007 and had great success in the charts. He has since toured and performed with some of Australia’s biggest country music names including Sara Storer, The Sunny Cowgirls, Troy Cassar-Daly and The Davidson Brothers.
A new album is in the works.
Tom’s hits spent 11 weeks in the Country Tracks Top 30 with Smack Bang hitting #1.
