Following the release of his acclaimed debut 2014 Album February Josh Rennie-Hynes is set to release his stunning second album Furthermore on August 26th through MGM. Following the release he is hitting the road in New Zealand joined by fellow Australian songwriter, Liam Gerner.
Furthermore was recorded in Rennie-Hynes’ personal studio, on his Family farm in Woodford, Queensland. Over the period of three weeks, working everyday from morning until late night, Rennie-Hynes produced, engineered and recorded all of the songs alongside his friend, Steve Grady. Together, they played the bulk of the instruments, with a focus on capturing the essence of each song and building it from a bed rock live performance of just Rennie-Hynes and a Guitar. The result is an album which is organic, cohesive, yet also eclectic, with Rennie-Hynes’ warm and assured vocal providing the common thread throughout.
Joining Josh on the tour is Liam Gerner, Steeped in blues and country music, Liam left his rural family life in the Adelaide hills to seek his fortune in London. Almost immediately he was treated as a “hot new talent” and experienced the music business at its most corporate. Breaking free, he headed to the US, joined Texan country rocker Ryan Bingham’s band on guitar and experienced frontline American roots music. Returning to Australia in early-2013 Liam had his guitar, songs and Land Of No Roads, an album cut with LA’s finest.
