Multi-Golden Guitar nominated singer-songwriter Paul Costa makes a much-anticipated return with a new single Road Train off his firth studio album, Whisper in the Crowd, in the lead up to two very special shows at the 2019 Tamworth Country Music Festival. I recently spoke with the Australian country music fan-favourite about how he spends his holidays, plans for Tamworth and finding inspiration in unexpected places.
I wanted to kick off with something different before we get into touring and recording. Your birthday is fast approaching at the end of November. What do birthdays mean to you and how will you be celebrating it?
I like to spend it with my family. I don’t go overboard; it’s fairly low key. We might go out for tea or just cut a cake. A lot of people are working in one place, getting away is their holiday. For me, it’s completely the opposite – I’m away so much; being home is my holiday. There’s still work to do when you’re home, as there’s stuff that goes on behind the scenes, so I can’t afford to relax too much but I am relaxed so far as being in one on my favourite places to be.
