Anglo-Australian duo Dawn Moore and Brian Heywood are probably the busiest undiscovered country band in the UK with over sixty gigs last yearin the UK and Australia. Their sound is a tight amalgam of raunchy guitar driven roots music and rich vocal harmonies that bridges the gap between classic and new country. The band’s gig list includes festivals such as the Tamworth Country Music Festival as well as large charity events such as Coleen Nolan’s Wild West Party at Old Trafford Cricket Ground. After four single releases and a successful collaboration with BBC Radio 1 John Peel’s favourite Pyschobilly band “The Pocket Gods”, the Thoroughbredmusic has released their first full length album - “Goodbye Yesterday” - worldwide. The CD features the members of the Hoedown Band along with guest players from the UK and Australia such as the BJ Cole (pedal steel guitar), Tom Kitching (fiddle), Guy Rogers (banjo) and Justin Saban (electric guitar) from the UK and Hugh MacDonald (acoustic and electric guitars) and Greg Hunt (fiddle) from Australia. Since then they have achieved chart success in Australia’s Country Top 40 with their singles “Headin’ Home (for Christmas)” and "Walkin' after midnight" and have been nominated for the prestigious ICMA Award for “Most Popular Independent Duo”.
