“Hard work and makin’ music”, five words that have driven The Wolfe Brothers to their current place in Australian Country Music. Nick & Tom Wolfe have music in their DNA. The passion to make music was nurtured by their father and grandfather who were also musicians. Coupled with their tenacity and work ethic, it’s no great surprise the boys have risen to the top. 

Hailing from Tasmania, it was being runner-up on Australia’s Got Talent that first brought the brothers into the spotlight and won them a legion of loyal fans. In 2013 they joined country icon Lee Kernaghan on his “Beautiful Noise” tour, a touring relationship that has spanned several years. The Wolfe Brothers have become a staple on the live scene and have featured at some of the biggest music festivals in Australia, they also performed on the iconic Calgary Stampede in Canada in 2019. 

Their sound has evolved since their debut album “It’s On” released in 2013 and their musical journey led them to 2018’s “Country Heart” an album that solidified their position in the new world of Australian Country Music. It was “Country Heart” that saw The Wolfe Brothers take home four Golden Guitars for Album of the Year, Contemporary Country Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Group/Duo of the Year and be awarded the APRA AMCOS Song of the Year for “Ain’t Seen It Yet”. 

The next chapter for Nick & Tom is set to be their most exciting yet having signed a worldwide deal with global independent label BMG. The first single released under their new label “No Brakes” is already making waves, continuing to sit at #1 on the Aussie country singles charts the track has also spawned its own Tik Tok dance.  

Check out Tom and Nick taking on the viral dance on Instagram.

In between writing new music and taking Tik Tok by storm, Tom caught up with Insider to take part in our Quaran-TEN series: 

1. Get up and get dressed or PJs all day?

I’m pretty lucky to be locked down on the family farm. So I’ve been just wearing work shirts and jeans for the entire lockdown. I also don’t wear PJs.. so I doubt the neighbor would appreciate seeing that haha.  

2. Go to Iso-snack?

Well my wife has been cooking and making some really delicious stuff. Her zucchini slice is pretty damn good!  

3. Go to Quarantine cocktail?

I’m a simple man.. Cascade larger at the end of a day on the farm is pretty hard to beat. 

4. Ordering in or cooking ?

Well because we are out on the farm our options are a little more limited to ordering out. But we have been supporting our local hotel (Longley International Hotel)  

5. Last TV show you binged ?

Better Call Saul, I LOVED it! I was a big Breaking Bad fan and I am loving this prequel.  

6. Last music live-stream you watched ?

Watching a few live streams and online performances! Enjoying Kix Country Monday night shows, Travis Collins Friday night streams are fun and relaxed. I’m enjoying watching how people are using this time to come up with new ways to be creative! Also.. our Friday night live streams are pretty good haha  

7. Most entertaining celeb to follow on socials ?

ave Gleeson from Angels/Screaming is hilarious. Jimmy Barnes is great! Loving his performances with his wife Jane while on lock down.

8. Last gig you went to before lockdown?

Well ours! Haha we were out on tour and actually only had one show left for the tour before the lock down came. Flew home to Tas and haven’t left since.  

9. First artist you want to see when lockdown ends ?

Anything! Literally anyone! I am craving live music! I miss the energy, the connection and getting lost in it. Love to go see some blues gigs and great pickers. I hope Cold Chisel might announce a post COVID tour. (Please do this Cold Chisel) haha  

10. The biggest lesson quarantine has taught you ?

Geez, so many. What’s really important. My family, my close friends. But the biggest personally would be patience. I’m the type of man who is bull a gate, why wait when you can do it now type of person. So… this pandemic as def taught me to smell the rose a bit more and be a bit more in the moment.
