Five years on from the release of her debut EP, Fanny Lumsden is hitting new highs with her second album, ‘Real Class Act’ debuting #1 on the ARIA Country Album chart and #23 on the ARIA All-Genre chart.
The new album ‘Real Class Act’ is one of only eight Australian artist albums to hit the top of the Country charts in 2017 and the only independent release to reach #1. One of the songs from the album, ‘Roll On’ has been #1 on CMC. The chart debut is another highlight in an already stellar year for the Tumbarumba based singer-songwriter who received both the Golden Guitar Award and CMC Award for Best New Talent along with the 2017 APRA Professional Development Award (Country) and was nominated for an ARIA Award for Country Album of the Year in 2016.
We cannot wait for Fanny to ‘roll on’ to our #MFSRLive stage in 2018!

Brad Cox will be tearing up the MFSR Live Main Stage in 2018 so you better brace yourself!
Songs full of heart and maturity well beyond his years, but with not so many years in the industry under his belt, Brad Cox promises to stand the test of time.
Songwriting is a massive passion of Brad’s and his live performance will prove it. With an interpretation of modern American country mixed with a slightly more ‘real’ style of songwriting, Brad will impress crowds for a long time yet.
