CYBER COWBOY Cowboys In Cybersp@ce - October 1999 CYBER COWBOY

By Bob Howe © 1999

"Love In The Virtual World"

Love In The Real World album cover The debut album from Australian born country star Sherrié Austin, 'Words', sold over 300,000 copies worldwide. Her brand new album, 'Love In The Real World', features 14 new songs, 11 written or co-written by Sherrié, including two bonus tracks exclusive to Australia. This is also an enhanced CD that contains extra content that plays on your computer: a biography, a link to the BMG Australia Web site (that contains an excellent Sherrié Austin section), and a video interview that will bring back a few memories for anyone who remembers Sherrié as a young Queensland girl in a cowgirl outfit! That youngster was a long way from the modern technology that can help drive a musical career today. In the U.S., her chart-topping single, 'Never Been Kissed', was delivered to radio stations by E-mail (using Liquid Audio). Back in the 'real' world, Sherrié has launched her own shade of lipstick. 'Austintatious', to tie in with the 'Never Been Kissed' theme. The video on the CD also features behind-the-scenes footage of the music video 'Never Been Kissed', with much frog-kissing going on. Handsome Prince appearing or not, Sherrié has definitely been granted her wish to make a serious mark on the Country Music scene.

More Major Artists - more Major Web sites this month. Presented in stylish tropical colours, the Graeme Connors Web site is a deep resource of information for his many fans. No less than you would expect from one of Australia's brightest and most successful Country Music stars. Browse through the catalogue of Graeme's albums and videos to find lyrics to all the songs. Check out his 'Briefography' that develops into a longer 'Profile' of his career. Join the 'Contact Club' for the quarterly 'Mango Times' magazine, hear and see samples of Graeme's music, and visit his scrapbook for a 'blast from the past'. The Panama Music Web site will also soon be an Internet home for Rosemary Rae.

Poetic Justice album cover It was long wait for the stunning new album from Jane Saunders, but luckily we haven't had to wait that long for her Web site! Read the fax that Nanci Griffith sent to Jane, praising the 'Poetic Justice' album, and watch for the tour dates as Jane hits the road with Eric Bogle. The lyrics to the new album are all here, plus a biography written by Glenn A. Baker. I look forward to viewing Jane's 'Photo Gallery' and 'Scrapbook' that should be on-line by the time you read this column. Five years have elapsed since Jane's critically acclaimed debut album established her as a major voice in the contemporary Australian Country music scene. This time around she has eschewed the predictable sound of many recent recordings, and travelled to Melbourne where producers Joe Camilleri (Black Sorrows) and Sam See have helped Jane her put her own stamp on a carefully chosen collection of songs.

I'm also looking forward to the new official Web site of Troy Cassar-Daley which is appearing as I write. As Troy enjoys the success of his great new release 'Big River' and a continued run of winning awards, we can expect more good things at his on-line 'Homestead'.
