Tom Wolfe from The Wolfe Brothers is our special guest on episode #10 of the Tone Countrycast.
The four-time Golden Guitar winners in 2019 recently signed a new record deal with BMG Australia and Broken Bow Records.
In the episode, Wolfe talks about how The Wolfe Brothers were actually head-hunted for Australia’s Got Talent, back in 2012.
“They [the producers] got in touch… we did it at the time because we wanted to get more gigs in Tasmania,” said Wolfe.
He details how producers tried (but failed) to present them as something more than just a bunch of mates who played music together.

“As soon as they found out we lived on farm, they were like… are you guys dealing with drought?” he continued.
But being from Tasmania, they weren’t dealing with any of those things, so the producers eventually just ran with the simple narrative of the guys being a band of mates who loved playing music together.
