||When Gina Horswood packed her life into a bag and bought a one way ticket to the other side of the world, she had no idea what was in store for her or her music career. Since October 2011, she's travelled to a whole new hemisphere, bringing with her a distinctive voice and songs inspired by her nomadic life.
Gina's debut "Our Way", penned with sister Melanie, was released in 2006 and boasted two top 10 country singles in Australia. The duo extensively toured East Coast Australia and shared bills with multiple Aria award winning artists Kasey Chambers and Pete Murray. In 2009 Gina's sophomore CD and first solo album "Crazy Brilliant Mess", received critical acclaim in the rich musical landscape down under, with the video for her single "Ordinary Girl" reaching the top 50 on the national Country Music Channel charts.
In 2013, Gina followed the troubadour tradition and traveled to the heart of the North American music scene: Nashville, Tennessee. There she collaborated with renowned songwriter and Producer Jim Reilley (The New Dylans, Curb Publishing, cuts by Vince Gill, Jack Ingram, Sam Bush) to create the Nashville Sessions EP.
Since that release in 2014, Gina has continued touring North America and had the privilege of opening for great Canadian acts including Suzie Vinnick, Jon Brooks, and Basia Bulat. In July 2015 Gina was the winner of the first Collingwood Live & Original Music series - a competition which " celebrates finding musical creativity and innovation at the grass roots level". Gina went on tho record her next release "Porcelain"shortly after the Collingwood win, with Canadian producer Andre Wahl (Luke Doucet, Hawksley Workman, Amy Sky, Shania Twain). Musicians on the project included Tom and Sly Juhas, Rich Levesque, and Robbie Grunwald. This will be Gina's first full length release since "Our Way" and marks a significant departure from her country/ballad roots. The sound is rich organic and compelling, inspired by her experiences around the world. The first single will hit Australian and Canadian radio on November 30th, 2015, with the full album being launched in May 2016.
