Hot on the heels of her co-headline performance at the 2024 Tamworth Country Music Festival, Courtney Keil unveils the cheerful bop, ‘All About You’.
The up-tempo single puts romance centre stage and reminds us that amidst the tangle of modern life, love can be a beacon of clarity. “We tapped into some of the contradictions about me as a person,” admits Courtney.
“I’m one part fearless / One part kinda shy / The life of the party/ But queen of the quiet,” she serenades in the second verse. Despite these juxtapositions, ‘All About You’ reflects on “finding ‘the one’ that makes you feel sure of everything else”.
When putting pen to paper, Courtney sought out frequent collaborators, Rod McCormack and Sally Barris. This time they were determined to compose upon the path less travelled. “We set out to write an anthemic, feel good song. As songwriters it’s often naturally easier to write slower heartbreak songs so we wanted to focus on the love I have in my life and how it makes me feel.”
Produced by multi award winning Rod McCormack at his Central Coast studio, The Music Cellar, the track intertwines banjo, mandolin and acoustic guitar with a pounding backbeat and Courtney’s bold vocal, to create something with authentic country spirit and twang.
‘All About You’ follows on from Courtney’s previous hit ‘Nothin’ Like a Sure Bet’, which peaked at #25 on the CountryTown Hot 50 airplay charts, a crowd favourite when opening for Adam Harvey at Blazes Showroom, Tamworth. To cap off her stellar run at the recent Tamworth Country Music Festival, the songbird received the Australian Country Music People’s Choice Award for Best Female Vocal – a phenomenal back-to-back win, after also claiming the trophy at last year’s awards.
After a whirlwind start to the year, Courtney is not slowing down. Upon the release of ‘All About You’ she’ll take the stage ahead of Karise Eden at the beloved Avoca Beach Theatre. She’ll later enchant the theatre again in support of the legendary, Brian Cadd, while also continuing her popular Fierce and Fearless Tour.
Courtney Keil is all about good vibes on her new track ‘All About You’. This free-spirited track is a strong reminder that this multi award winning artist is destined for massive things in Australian country music.
