Early praise for The new tour and album :
THANKYOU SO MUCH for coming to Canberra Last Thursday (November 7).I had the pleasure of meeting you and Glenn at SongLand as well as getting my photo taken. The concert was absolutely fantastic, actually as I kept telling my friends I use the words epic and amazing and I also tell them how I would go back again to your concert in a heartbeat. You and Glenn are LEGENDS of the Australian music industry and I thank you so much for everything you and Glenn have done and still doing.
I really hope you and Glenn decide to come back to Canberra.
Hi Brian, Just wanted to write and say what a wonderful show you and Glenn Shorrock had at the Anita Theatre Thirroul on Friday. The music and energy you both gave were amazing! Made me feel like I was 17 again! ( which was a long time ago now!) My husband and I travelled down from Springwood in the Blue Mountains for the show and we loved every minute of your performances. We tried to get tickets for the Rooty Hill show the following night we had such a great time but it was sold out. I'm off to buy the cd at JB Hi Fi tomorrow ( as you suggested) and look forward to more shows in the future. You are as good, if not better than in the 70's. Loved your music then and still do now, Jenny xx

ARIA HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES GLENN SHORROCK AND BRIAN CADD REUNITE FOR STUDIO ALBUM AND NATIONAL TOUR ALBUM: THE STORY OF SHARKY AND THE CADDMAN In Stores October 18 DOWNLOAD RELEASE PDF
Ambition Music is proud to announce that ARIA Hall of Fame Inductees Glenn Shorrock and Brian Cadd have reunited for a studio album and National tour – The Story of Sharky and the Caddman. The album is in store on October 18, with the national tour kicking off in November 2013.
Shorrock and Cadd are Australian Musical icons – both known for their incredible songwriting and performing talents. They first collaborated in 1969 when they formed Axiom, an Australian ‘supergroup’ designed to take on the English Market. Through Axiom they had huge Australian hits including Arkansas Grass, A Little Ray Of Sunshine and My Baby’s Gone.
Throughout the years, Shorrock (Little River Band) and Cadd (The GROOP and esteemed songwriter) have collaborated on various projects and their latest, The Story of Sharky and the Caddman is something quite spectacular.
The Story of Sharky and the Caddman features a wonderful collection of Axiom songs, a selection of Shorrock and Cadd’s own timeless hits and some exciting new material, all bathed in the magic of this renewed ensemble.
The album was produced by Cadd & Shorrock and recorded in Melbourne with legendary engineer Doug Brady. The superb band features Axioms’ original drummer Doug Lavery and guitarist Chris Stockley, and includes Sam See, Glyn Mason (whom together with Stockley form the renowned ‘Stockley, See & Mason’ ) and bassist Jason Vorherr. This troop will hit the musical road together from early November for National touring through 2014.
On the collaboration Cadd says "The two of us have been mates since we were little more than kids. Musically we just always seemed to click and our voices have a most unique sound together. We’ve certainly been on all the rides and every step and adventure has been laced with humour and fun. It happened all during the recording sessions and I’m certain will continue on the road. The status remains very much quo".
"In recent times Brian and I talked about a reformation of Axiom which was a fairly brief but wonderful part of our musical lives...and which spring boarded us both into the international music scene. This album and tour is made especially enjoyable by the inclusion of Stockley, See and Mason as well as our original Axiom drummer Doug Lavery in the lineup." Says Shorrock.
Shorrock is best known as part of the internationally acclaimed Little River Band and mega hits including Reminiscing, Help is on Its Way, Home on a Monday and the classic Cool Change. In, addition to success with The GROOP, Cadd has penned songs for Joe Crocker, Ringo Starr, The Pointer Sisters, Bonnie Tyler, Charlie Daniels and many more.
Founded by Robert Rigby (ex MD of Warner Music), Ambition Music has released albums by an impressive roster of international and local artists including Michael Crawford, Tina Arena, Renée Geyer, Russell Morris, Marina Prior, Wendy Matthews.
