Tom Curtain Music

Tom Curtain is a nationally acclaimed singer/ songwriter. This tour coincides with the release of his fifth studio album Nothin’s Gonna Stop Us – the first release of this album “Why We Live Out Here” has had great success, remaining in the Country Songs Australian Airplay Chart for 10 months. His last album We’re Still Here debuted at No.1 on the Australian Country Music Charts with all four singles released from the album also going to No.1. 

In 2018 Tom won two Golden Guitar Awards for his single “Never Never Land”, a duet with Luke O’Shea. Tom was also awarded the prestigious 2018 Australian Independent Country Music Artist of the Year Award together with Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year (Territory Time) and Single of the Year(“Never Never Land”) at the Southern Stars Australian Independent Country Music Awards.  

Tom is also an official ambassador of Dolly’s Dream. Moved by the tragic passing of Amy ‘Dolly’ Everett, who took her young life after being relentlessly cyber-bullied, Tom put pen to paper and released the single “Speak Up” with Sara Storer. To date, over $35,000 has been raised by the Katherine Outback Experience and Outback Productions through the sale of the song and branded shirts. These donations are used to provide useful and powerful tools for schools, children and family members (www.dollysdream.org.au) to fight online bullying.
