GRAEME CLARKE - THE MUSIC

NEW CD OUT NOW - HELL & BACK

About Graeme Clarke's musical career

Born in New Zealand, Graeme came to Australia in 1980 to take up a 2 year contract in New South Wales and as a result, remained in Australia.

Graeme pursued his musical hobby entertaining around the Newcastle and Sydney area before deciding to record an album titled “Graeme Clarke Sings Your Favourites” and single titled “Tender Trap” / “Darling on Your Way Out Close the Door” and then moved further afield by touring greater Australia.

During his sojourn in Brisbane, Graeme’s song titled “Tender Trap” climbed to No. 9 on the 4KQ Country charts and received some 5 airplays a day at its peak. It was also included in the top 100 songs for 1985 and placed into the Golden Oldie song list where it will stay for all time. Graeme continued touring and eventually ended up in South Australia.

He returned to his profession for a brief period managing projects in several overseas countries before returning to South Australia to retire in a little place called North Beach.

It was here he picked up on his musical hobby once more, wrote 7 original songs, then released a 14 track CD album titled “Footprints in the Sand at Wallaroo” This CD proved extremely popular so he did a follow up 14 track CD titled “One For the Road” which contained 4 more original songs penned by Graeme.

Songs off both these albums have received airplay in Europe as well as in the USA, New Zealand and throughout Australia.

To add to his entertainment stable Graeme wrote and published three books. Book one of his trilogy “Pacifica and Beyond” is titled “Trail of the Tender Trap” and this book is an extremely interesting anecdotal account of Graeme’s Australian tour as an itinerate entertainer.

Not satisfied with only having the 3 x CD albums Graeme decided to work with Vaughn Lofstead from the Smoke House Studio in Nashville and put together a string of old classics. He teamed up with Heather Johnson, a local singer, and produced “Boots Things and Golden Rings” the title reflecting some of the ballad tracks that Graeme updated and gave them a modern feel.

Graeme’s latest CD is a solo effort and is simply titled “Hell and Back” This CD was created and recorded entirely in Adelaide SA with the exception of two tracks brought forward off his last album.  One of these tracks titled “Country Club” actually climbed to No.1 on the European CM Charts in 2014.
