Australia’s premiere Country Music duo, the multi-award winning O’Shea have today released their new album 61-615 through Sony Music Entertainment Australia.

The album’s first single ‘Start Over,’ written by Mark, Jay and ARIA Award winning singer songwriter, Alex Lloyd recently went to #1 on The Music Network’s national Country Airplay chart.
Based in Nashville for the last nine years, O’Shea have graced some of the world’s most famed stages, from the Grand Ole Opry to the Sydney Opera House, since beginning their musical together journey together in 2007. The influences of their two homes are all over their latest record, appropriately titled 61-615 in homage to both Australia and Nashville.
In addition to Lloyd, notable contributors to the album include co-writer and Grammy-winner Emily Weisband, country stars Travis Collins and the Wolfe Brothers on the John Farnham classic ‘Playing to Win’, plus co-writers Will Hoge and Nathan Chapman (producer for Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Shania Twain and Lady Antebellum).
The release of 61-615 and ‘Start Over’ follows O’Shea’s Golden Guitar win, and APRA nomination for ‘The Truth Walks Slowly (in the Countryside)’ with Midnight Oil’s Rob Hirst earlier this year.
