The four friends met whilst studying at Music College; however it wasn’t until a few years later that they began writing and recording their own music and Jetty Road was born. Release in April 2009 through Compass Bros Distribution, Life At A Million Miles is the third album released by the Victorian 4 piece. Their previous albums, Full Circle released in 2005 and Dirt Roads City Lights released in 2007 saw the band garner the attention of the country music industry, both locally and internationally. After releasing their debut single Run To You in 2005, the band have had five tracks in the Top 20 on Australian radio. Heart And Soul, Real Smooth Cowboy, I Wanna Go Home, City Lights and most recently Good Times, which sat in the #2 position for 4 weeks. Four of the video clips for these tracks made it to the Top 10 on CMC.
City Lights, released in 2008 made the coveted #1 position on the CMC (Country Music Channel) chart. Along with strong chart success, Jetty Road have twice taken home the TIARA Award for Best Group (2008 / 2009) and the Victorian Album of the Year at the 2008 Victorian and National Country Music Awards. In January 2008 they were honoured with a finalist nomination at the 36th Country Music Awards of Australia for Best Group. In 2006 Lee, Paula, Simon and Julian spent nearly two years on the road touring with Australian country music star, James Blundell. They have toured nationally numerous times, including many festivals.
In addition to performing throughout Australia, their great chart success and numerous accolades, the band have started conquering the world. June 2008 saw Jetty Road performing on main stage at Dauphin Countryfest in Canada. To date, Keith Urban and Jetty Road are the only Australian acts to ever perform at the festival. Dauphin Countryfest is Canada’s longest running music festival, and other performers in 2008 included country music super-star Alan Jackson, Lonestar and 2008 Grammy Award winners Emerson Drive. Jetty Road were also invited to play for the prestigious CMA Global Artist Showcase during the annual CMA Music Festival in Nashville, and were the first country music artists to perform at the Hard Rock Café in Paris whilst on tour throughout France and the United Kingdom. Commencing in Australia in May 2009, Jetty Road embark on a world tour to promote the release of the new album.
They will be travelling a million miles as their tour begins in Australia before heading back to Europe, UK, the USA and Canada to perform on some of the world’s biggest summer festivals.
