Washuntara_nameAlready acclaimed throughout Europe and Australasia, Washuntara gained a sizable following across the United States following the release of his CD ‘Fierce Tenderness’ and the broad airplay of his self-penned song, Riverboat’. The new CD, The Makings and its companion DVD, A Walk in the Music, continue to delight both dedicated fans and new listeners alike.

Based in Nashville, Washuntara has worked as a songwriter in this country music capital of the world for the past twenty years. His publishing company, Passionworks Music, is located on Nashville’s famous Music Row. Passionworks (see below) has enjoyed great success on the back of Washuntara’s creative work.

This versatile performer and multi-instrumentalist was born in the Australian outback to a bush family rooted in traditional music. He began performing as a child and, as Brenton Roberts, reached Top Ten status in Australian and European markets with his self penned recordings, including ‘Man and Woman’ and Just Remember’, before heading to the USA. He was the first songwriter to be awarded the Australian 343Commonwealth Exports grant, which seeded Passionworks. The Australian-published book, It’s Our Music devotes a chapter to the singer, saying: Washuntara is easily the outstanding (Australian) artist of the decade”. This has been reinforced by this world-class talent having performed with some of the worlds greatest acts, including Sir Paul McCartney, the Eagles, the Moody Blues, Keith Urban, Jerry Lee Lewis, Garth Brooks and others. He has also been received with great enthusiasm by the first lady at a charity event at the White House in Washington DC.
