NORMIE ROWE Buddy
Normie Rowe AM was the first and biggest male solo star of Australian pop in the 1960s. A strong singer and a natural performer, his bright, edgy tenor voice was showcased in well-chosen material, much of which was produced by the legendary Pat Aulton, house producer for the Sunshine, Spin and Festival labels. Supported by the assured performances of his backing band The Playboys, Normie cut a string of classic beat singles on the Sunshine label that kept him at the top of charts for two years and made him the most popular Australian solo singer of the “beat” era. Normie’s double-sided hit “Que Sera Ser” / “Shakin’ All Over” is cited as the top-selling Australian single of the 1960s and is still one of the biggest-selling Australia recordings of all time.
COURTNEY MURPHY Britt
It seems all too easy to regard the average Australian Idol performer as a ‘flash in the pan’ overnight sensation, but the truth behind Courtney Murphy’s success is far more involved. Having a musical career that spans longer than many of his peers, Courtney still performs regularly solo and with the band he formed with his brothers in the early 1990’s, Murphy’s Lore. As one of the final three on ‘Australian Idol’ in 2004, still the highest rating season of the popular Network Ten program, Courtney quickly became one of the most recognisable new artists in Australia. His extraordinary voice and dynamic performances garnered him praise from the viewing public, who embraced his soulful interpretations of popular hits and hidden gems, as well as his happy-go-lucky persona and quirky sense of humour.
