1995 Joel Smoker and the Red Dirt Band
Joel has travelled widely throughout regional Australia and the collection of songs titled Outback reflects his experiences in this part of the country. The songs tell the stories of the people of rural Australia, of their hardships and their joys.
This is a contemporary album about life in the heartland as it is lived now - not in some mythological past. The song Outback won an award in the Country Category of the 1993 WA Music Industry Association Song Contest.
