New Release: The Fools Errand I've been busy putting this album together over the course of the year. The Fools Errand contains 12 new tracks plus one bonus track, the previously released single Cowgirl Stole My Heart. The album is produced by Dan Drilling of Panda Productions in Nashville. It contains a variety of themes and tempos; some a little serious but most with a bit of lighthearted fun. Always catchy and radio friendly as you'd expect from me. 11 songs written by my own pen and two by my good mate and great writer, Terry Benetts.
Outback Dreams -Review From Capital News The Male winner of the 2008 WA Country Music Awards Best Vocalist BILLY HIGGINSON has also released his debut CD Outback Dreams. Fellow WA winner VICKI LEE reciprocates with backing vocals/duets just as Billy did on her album Original & Traditional. Billy shows his songwriting talents on eleven of the dozen tracks; the exception being Where The Cockatoos Fly written by Vicki. I Wanna See The Rain opens the album; a wishful journey through Australia’s beautiful scenery. Title track Outback Dreams follows; escaping the rat-race for the serenity of outback life. Sweet Surrender is a charming love song. Billy and Vicki duet on 2 Minds (also released on Vicki’s CD) Tamworth is another fine duet, honouring the country music capital’s iconic festival. Road Trains And Rodeos is a great foot-tapper; simply addictive. No Other Name is a heartfelt gospel track, a fine way to close a fine introduction to the country music fraternity.
