Australian Country Duo

Destiny Band Oz (Australian, Gippsland-based Thomas and Tessa Libreri and their band) have won the International Band of the Year 2019 International Singer Songwriter Association Awards held in Atlanta USA yesterday!
This is no mean feat  with hundreds of nominees vying for positions in the various categories!  Destiny Band Oz were nominated in 9 categories of the International section and made it through as finalists in 6 of those categories; winning the Band of the Year category.  Thanks go to all who nominated Destiny Band Oz (Thomas and Tessa are very humbled by the support) and they extend their congratulations to all the winners, finalists and the organizers.
Unfortunately Thomas and Tessa  were unable to attend the gala ceremony to accept the award but a lovely 12 inch high, solid crystal obelisk will be arriving in the mail shortly; so this trophy, (along with Destiny Band Oz’s other recent awards, the 2018 Gold Medallion Media Award for Band or Duo, the 2018 TICMA National Country Band of the Year, Akademia Music Award (USA) and 3 x International Clouzine Music Awards 2018-2019) will be going straight to the pool room! 😉
Lately Thomas and Tessa have been keeping busy gigging, writing and recording their own music – as well as other people’s songs!  So Tessa would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the radio presenters who have been playing the duet ‘I’ll Be Home Soon’ which country balladeer, Gary Ellis asked her to record with him for his new album which was released last month.  It has made #3 on the Country Songs Top 40 Australian Airplay chart, #7 on an independent USA chart and is currently #5 on the Tasmanian chart. Tessa was also asked by songwriter and Diamondback Records boss, Glenn Erickson, to record one of his compositions which will will be released in October 2019 while Destiny Band Oz are touring Tasmanian venues on their October Tassie Tour with solo artist, Garry Hunt.
