When three of Australia’s most versatile musicians/entertainers step into a studio together you have to expect an exciting product.
Such is the case with RUNAWAY DIXIE featuring VIRGINIA and LYNETTE COAD and JIM HERMEL.
JIM HERMEL is no stranger to the Australian Country music world with a career spanning 30 years, numerous bands and many overseas tours. Highlights of his overseas tours include performing with Jerry Lee Lewis at the Jerry Lee Lewis Showroom, Nashville, Tenn. in 1980.
Along with his well known Country and Country Rock style as a dynamic vocalist and lead guitarist, Jim has a deep love and appreciation for Bluegrass and Gospel and the forming of the trio with the Virginia and Lynette Coad has given him the opportunity to explore this field with much success.
VIRGINIA & LYNETTE COAD
Both fulltime entertainers and successful artists in their own right, Virginia & Lynette are no strangers to Australian Country Music either.
Their appreciation for the Gospel and Bluegrass style, and being versatile multi-instrumentalists not to mention being two of the most diverse and dynamic lead and harmony vocalists in Australia today, made the combination with JIM HERMEL the perfect Bluegrass/Gospel Trio package.
