Listen to the “Heart of Australia”

Official Release: 26 October 2022.

“Blue Sky Walking” refers to the spirit of everyone involved in the production of the song, “Heart of Australia”
— the writers and performers.  

The composers wish to acknowledge the song was written on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We sincerely hope that our work does justice to the thousands of generations of song-people that have gone before us on this country.

“What a song! It captures so much and encompasses so very
much. It calls to heart, first nation, the now nation, and everyone,
with a combined sense of wonder and gratitude about the fact
we all live on this great, great and ancient land.”

“It is superb and just like Peter Allen’s, ‘I Still Call Australia Home’,
or Sarah McLauchlan’s song, ‘In The Arms of An Angel’, it captures
true heart, mystery and magic.”

Dean Carey, 28 September 2022

“Strong lyrics and incredibly heart felt.
I wish you and your team all the very best with the launch.”
