Karl Broadie – Biography 2015
Australian based Scotsman Karl Broadie was born in to a family of philosophers, musicians and artists.
With his distinctive, emotional voice, Karl Broadie has the ability to capture the attention and heart of a listener in just a few bars of music. Broadie’s entrancing melodies are enhanced by his earthy and poetic lyricism. Here is an artist who is no stranger to the gradual climb. This, in fact, is the patient journey of a true artist and not merely by descent but in his own right, a philosophizing, free-thinking, gifted songwriter.
Recognised as one of Australia’s most unique and dynamic songwriters, Karl has also enjoyed international success. He took out first place in the Americana category of the prestigious International Songwriting Competition in 2006 for his hit single, Black Crow Callin’, and has seen two of his albums top the Americana charts in the UK.
UNCUT and MOJO are among many respectable international publications who have praised Broadie’s song craftsmanship and “sweetly cracked” vocal style and drawn comparisons to Bob Dylan, Jeff Tweedy (Wilco) and Australia’s own Paul Kelly.
