Raised on a small farm in Coomera, South East Queensland, Australia, Tyson Colman has grown up with the true essence of country music, and this reflects in his highly emotive compositions. Tyson taught himself to play guitar when he was fifteen and began singing from the time he could talk. A strong baritone / tenor voice, now highly polished after five years of classical vocal training, he sings with a clean, unique quality that definitely makes you stop and listen.

The album also comprises some powerful country ballads such as ‘My Last’ and ‘Quicksand’ before rounding out with a couple of rollicking up-tempo songs, ‘Good Night’ and ‘Good For You’.
The title track, ‘Proud’, which Jason co-wrote with producer Clive Young, is a symbolic song in many ways for many people. For Jason, it’s about being proud of his Indigenous heritage. ‘Proud’ also features multi ARIA award-winning artist, Christine Anu, one of Australia’s most celebrated Indigenous artists.
