Kirsty Lee Akers is one of Australia’s most unique and authentic recording artists. A rare talent who is proud of her indigenous heritage as a woman of the Wonnarua nation, Akers describes herself as a fusion of modern Country and Americana with Pop stylings.
Akers is the only artist in history to have won three of the major prizes in Australian Country Music; Toyota Star Maker, Telstra Road to Discovery and a Golden Guitar Award.
While Australia will always be her spiritual home, she spends a lot of her time in overseas, having toured both the United States and North America for the last decade. The year 2018 saw her return to Canada to play the two major Canadian Country Music festivals (Calgary Stampede and Big Valley Jamboree) while also expanding her horizons as she showcased her music in the United Kingdom for the first time at the Buckle and Boots Festival. In 2019, Akers concentrated on touring her new album across Australia, paying considerable dividends on the home front.
Her current album ‘Under My Skin’ saw Akers achieve her highest ever ARIA chart positions with the title track ‘Under My Skin’ exclusively premiering on the Country Music Channel (CMC). Her previous album ‘Burn Baby Burn’ saw her achieve ARIA Australian Country Music Album #1 spot, and six consecutive #1 music videos on CMC. Internationally, her single ‘I Will’ was her first video to be added to both CMT and GAC in the United States.
