Melbourne-based singer, songwriter, and guitarist Dan Brodie focuses on edgy country-tinged rock, a strategy which has seen him dubbed “Australia’s John Mellencamp,” although someone like Steve Earle may be a better evaluation. Brodie’s dad was a musician in the 1960s within the Melbourne region, so that it was organic for Dan and his old sibling Chris Brodie to check out fit. The brothers produced their initial public appearance on the Richmond Membership Resort in Melbourne within the music group Blue Velvet when Dan was 15 and Chris was 16. The brothers held at it, ultimately gigging effectively as Dan Brodie & the Broken Arrows, an action constructed around Dan’s stunning music and Chris’ lap metal electric guitar playing. I’m Floatin Mamma, a self-financed debut EP, premiered in 1998, accompanied by a full-length record, Big Black Electric guitar, in 2001. Capitol agreed upon the group and released its major-label debut, Clear Arms Damaged Hearts, in 2002. Dan proceeded to go single sans the Broken Arrows for Capitol’s second discharge, the pop-oriented Beautiful Offences, in 2005. Made by Barry Palmer, Gorgeous Crimes was relatively of the departure in the hard acoustic country-rock from the initial two albums, even though existence of Chris Brodie’s lap metal and Dan’s familiar, soulful vocals supplied some continuity.
