James Reyne is an artist who
needs no introduction. He has sold more than two million albums and written some
of the most memorable Australian songs of all time. James has been a part of our
lives since 1979 originally fronting iconic band Australian Crawl for seven years,
releasing four studio albums in five frenetic years in the '80s. He's been a solo
artist for the past 28 years, releasing eight studio albums, plus two acoustic
collections, a covers album and two live albums. James Reyne's songs have provided
the soundtrack to endless Australian summers, including "The Boys Light Up", "Reckless",
"Beautiful People", "Lakeside", "Daughters Of The Northern Coast", "Fall Of Rome",
"Hammerhead", "Motor's Too Fast" and "Slave".
In 2017, Baby Animals
celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the record 'One Word', the bands highest charting

of the Australian rock n roll circuit since 1989 garnering domestic and international
acclaim with hits including "Early Warning", "Rush You", "Don't Tell Me What To

magic that separates one artist from the crowd and makes them a star.
