THE WARRATAHS: Drivin’ Wheel - A 30th Anniversary Compilation
7th September 2018
(Warratahs Music/Southbound) CD, Digital

“Barry Saunders sings about the changes that happen around us, changes we can do nothing to prevent, as well as the ones that take place inside. And he does it better and more recognisably than just about anyone.”
Nick Bollinger RNZ

For over 30 years The Warratahs have carved a niche into the New Zealand landscape - literally from North Cape to Bluff, becoming legendary for extensively touring both small towns and cities alike.

This year New Zealand’s greatest country music band celebrate the 30th Anniversary of their debut album The Only Game In Town. Winning the Country Music Album Award for 1988 and receiving a Gold Award for sales, the album included songs that have long become well known favourites - Hands Of My HeartMaureen and The Only Game In Town.

To honour the occasion, The Warratahs are pleased to announce the release of Drivin’ Wheela 24 track compilation spanning the years from 1988 to the present day, including the brand new song Fast Train.


“..the sizzling ‘Little Flame’, arguably one of Saunders best-ever songs”

Over the last 2 ½ years The Warratahs have released the acclaimed studio album Runaway Days, supported Lucinda Williams, Leann Rimes and Jimmy Barnes, played many shows including Selwyn Sounds, Hamilton Gardens Festival, Tora Festival and a recent sell-out show at The Gold Guitars in Gore.  

Barry Saunders has toured with Tami Neilson, Delaney Davidson and Marlon Williams, played in The Band tribute show The Last Waltz and has been working on a forthcoming studio album with Delaney Davidson. 

30 years, 7 studio albums, hundreds of thousands of albums sold and almost as many shows rolled out, The Warratahs once again hit the road. This time they have the Drivin’ Wheel compilation under their belt and a new song Fast Train.
