Our occasional feature spotlighting new artists continues today, as we turn our attention to another Aussie country act: The McClymonts. This sister act has already gained popularity in their home country.
Here's a bit of their bio from their official website:
“The McClymont sisters Brooke, Samantha and Mollie McClymont unleashed their musical alchemy and soaring vocal perfection when they released their first self-titled EP in June 06 through Universal Music.
They toured Australia performing to full houses every night supporting multi award winner Lee Kernaghan plus music festivals across the land.
As the word spread fast the industry quickly noticed their increasing popularity. The media became involved and they were invited on popular Radio and Television shows promoting their EP and public events. They where excited to be invited by Channel 9’s high rating show ‘Getaway’ to present their hometown of Grafton (NSW) to the Nation.
Another honor was being invited to perform ‘Delta Dawn’, a tribute to Helen Reddy at the Aria Hall of Fame awards 2006.
Also, they spent Christmas 2006 and New Years Eve away from their
family and friends to perform 15 shows over 2 weeks in Iraq.
Their hard work paid off when they proudly accepted 2 awards at this years’ 35th CMAA Country Music Awards of Australia held at Tamworth in January 07. The McClymonts received Golden Guitars for Group or Duo of the Year and Maton New Talent of the Year with their smash hit single Something That My Heart Does.
Recently, they became the faces for the Jamm 4 Jeans campaign. This event as part of the Jeans 4 Genes charity runs on the weekend of August 3-5 and through live music events raises money for Childrens’ Medical Research.
They are currently touring and preparing for the release their debut album Chaos and Bright Lights.
