SONGBROKER SONG OF THE DAY : GLEN MOFFATT - LONG-TERM LEASE
Glen Moffatt burst onto the national music scene with his debut album Somewhere in New Zealand Tonight in 1995 and was a nominated finalist for “songwriter of the year” at the 1996 recording industry awards.
Two albums followed – A Place To Play in 1998 and If That’s What You Want (as the Glen Moffatt Band) in 2001, both including co-writes with Ritchie Pickett and Arthur Baysting – before Moffatt relocated to Brisbane.
Along with fronting his band the Tallboys, Moffatt was a “Star Maker” grand finalist in 2003 and was part of the Smokin’ Crawdads line-up that was awarded Queensland Group of the Year at the Queensland Country Music Awards in 2010 with their album Straight to the Pool Room.
His recent album Superheroes & Scary Things features 13 songs by Moffatt and his co-writers. Recorded in both Australia and New Zealand, the album includes contributions from Bill Chambers, Michel Rose, Chet O’Connell and Brendan Radford, among others.
His songs have been included on albums by Bill Chambers, Michael Muchow, Donna Dean, Ritchie Pickett, Kevin Greaves, Darryl Apps and Dennis Marsh.
'Long-term Lease' is an upbeat catchy-as-heck country song with heartache at its core. Country music at its best.
