Broderick Smith announces his eleventh solo album Man Out Of Time. A study in vivid storytelling and mature restraint, Man Out Of Time will be released in line with his spellbinding autobiography of the same name. Today, he has released the first track from the album, ‘Singer In Chains’, which is available now.
A lonely caravan in a coastal town. A young sports hero flying off the rails. A murderous hero of a forgetful nation. A woman of a certain age glowing under a red harvest moon, a stranger emerging reborn from the desert, birds falling dead from the sky. Welcome to the world of Broderick Smith: Man Out Of Time.
Man Out Of Time is Broderick Smith’s first new solo album in 10 years, and it’s fair to say that much has changed, not least in the spellbinding tone that can only come with the patience of a seasoned master craftsman. It’s the peerless voice of the storyteller that commands attention.
This album’s been in the can “for two or three years,” he says. “I’m always writing and doing other things; little shows by myself, the odd festival. All I want to do is make the best records that I can”.
Broderick Smith has been making music for almost fifty years, and has been involved in the songwriting of over 200 songs. Beginning his career in Carson, he joined The Dingoes when they formed in 1973, the pioneering group that combined rhythm & blues with bush music to develop a unique Australian country rock sound. Following The Dingoes, Brod fronted various bands under his name. In 2009 Brod was inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame for his incredible work with The Dingoes, and he now runs workshops on songwriting, harmonica and singing, and continues to write and tour. Brod’s autobiography also titled Man Out Of Time, which will be released in October by Starman Books, details his incredible musical adventure.
After all these years, nobody compares to Broderick Smith.
