Col Finley Band

There’s a very good reason why award-winning country music veteran, Col Finley has been at the forefront of Australia’s country music scene for over 3 decades. Extremely well-crafted songs, dedication, exceptional work ethic, a killer live show and a long-lasting connection with fans, are all the essential ingredients to become one of Australia’s most successful independent recording and touring artists. With over 30 years in the music industry under his belt, Col has recorded and released six successful commercial albums. He has dabbled in acting and written songs that have featured in film and television, including the box office, smash Wolf Creek, Valentine and TV shows such as MDA and The Real Sea Change. But it all started a little different than most as Col’s career was with RAAF as a police dog handler (Military Police) and with the encouragement of his senior officers and fellow service members, he eventually launched himself into a full-time career in the Australian Music Industry.

Anna has an outpouring of passion that radiates from her every time she performs, which draws in the audience and leaves them wanting more.
