Multiple ‘Golden Guitar’ winner and ‘Lifetime Achievement’ recipient Pixie Jenkins is releasing his first solo album – in 25 years!
He won back to back ‘Best Instrumental’ awards in 1993 and 1994 off two albums released in the previous years. Then he started Pixeland Country Theatre, wrote and produced his own mutimedia theatre shows and created a legend. Now he’s back with a brand new release of original songs and tunes that he says “… is a dream come true – all my other dreams have” giggles the diminutive entertainer.
“I have been working on other peoples dreams for so long I had forgotten I had my own so I sat in my home studio and wrote and produced this collection”. There are 7 originals and two surprising covers – Slim Dusty’s ‘2nd class wait here’ and a beautifully emotional mashup of ‘Diamontina drover’ by Hugh Macdonald a ‘Rain from nowhere’ performed wih the help of two of Pixie’s mate, Ryan Sampson and Manfred Vijars.
Pixie has called the help of two of hs oldest musical compadres, Lawrie Minson from Slim Dusty and Lee Kernaghan bands and one of the finest country keyboard players in the world Gary Steel. All other instruments and production have been done by our Pixie.
