Fanny Lumsden

Set times

Born and bred on a farm in western NSW, 600 km from the nearest City, Fanny Lumsden grew up riding horses, helping out on the farm and living a seemingly idyllic Aussie Country upbringing with her family.

Music was a big part of the Lumsden household with everyone playing instruments and singing and there was never any doubt that Fanny was a born show pony. Having completed her AMEB grades on Piano, and studied Music at High school Fanny went away for a while to study a Bachelor of Rural Science at UNE before making the move to Sydney where she started playing around the local scene, going to Songwriter nights. It was from there she met her band members The Thrillseekers and from there where the real Fanny Lumsden story begins.

Nine years later, she has an ARIA Award (+ 2 other ARIA nominated Albums), 8x CMAA Golden Guitars, an AMP shortlisted (top 9) album, 3 ARIA chart topping albums, an AIR Award a CMC Award, her own Record Label – Red Dirt Road Records and her own hugely successful touring brand – The Country Halls Tour. The last 12 months did not slow Fanny down releasing ‘Fallow’ which debuted at #10 on the all genre ARIA charts, going to #1 on the Country ARIA charts for two weeks running, appeared on Play School Showtime, ABC’s The Set with You Am I, was one of 12 Aussies in Global Music Match, became a Support Act Advocate, a Volunteer firefighter, wrote and produced a documentary telling the story of Fallow through the summer of bushfires and recording her album in a stone hut and also managed to pull off a sold-out theatre tour across Australia in the wake of a pandemic here in Australia.
