Regarded as the new voice in Australian bluegrass, Kristy Cox grew up in the hills of South Australia. The time between school and household chores was spent listening to music, a passion installed through her parents and grandparents. Always supportive, her parents would drive her all across Australia in order to take her to a festival or talent show. Her parents’ support combined with her strong work ethic and obvious talent has paid off, signing a deal with the US and taking abroad to Europe, where she finds herself at the moment. Once she returns home, she will embark on a local tour in support of new album, Living for the Moment. Joining her will be Travis List, Australia’s premier male honky tonk artist. Goldmines Hotel, Bendigo – August 14.
