Fallow: Tilled earth ready for planting. Possibility of growth, possibility of failure.
Fallow and Variations: Living in the possibility of growth. Ideas that were given a chance, and thrived, against all odds.
So here is a collection of thriving ideas that yielded from stories already told. Fallow + Variations: An Idea. A theme. A variation.
It was March 13, 2020, when Fanny Lumsden’s third albumfallowmanaged to make its way out into the world - and what a wild ride it’s been prior to and following its release. Recorded throughout the blistering 2019/’20 Summer amidst the disruption of the devastating bushfires, come the time of its release the day the Music Industry & the world had come to a standstill (with no thanks to Covid), and faced with the uncertainties of what lay ahead,fallowwent on to forge its own path.
The stunning chart-topping album was embraced by the public, supportive radio & critics, winning Fanny many accolades (ARIA Award, 5 x Golden Guitars, AIR Country Album of the Year) and shooting the singer-songwriter to the forefront of the Australian Country music scene. Fast track two years to the day sincefallow’s release,March 11, 2022will see Fanny Lumsden releasefallowPart 2, infallow & Variations. Featuring reinterpretations of the songs, such as singlesThis Too Shall Pass, Dig, Fierce, These Days, Grown Ups, Tidy Town…,fallow & Variationssaw Fanny, Dan Stanley Freeman and several guests head back into the studio, with Matt Fell back at the helm, to show another side tofallow.
Says Fanny, “I feel like there was so much more to explore withfallow, that often you get to experience out sharing the songs and stories with people face to face. Due to the fact that touring was stilted so many times, we had to find different ways to tell the stories and explore the songs a little more. It feels a little exciting and a little, almost akin to relief, to share the songs in a different way.”
