The Fast Five - Brian Cadd

Multi-award winning singer, songwriter, and producer Brian Cadd (AM) will hit the stage in Darwin after recently returning to his old stomping ground of Nashville where he recorded a soon-to-be-released album. 

The 71-year-old singer and piano player still rocks in today’s retro-pumped music business and is as energised and creative as ever. He answered The Fast Five for Off The Leash.

What’s the first album you ever bought?
The first record I bought was a Jerry Lee Lewis EP High School Confidential. Vinyl. In Perth. Don’t have it anymore.

If you could see any artist or band – living or dead – this weekend, who would it be?
Django Reinhardt. Always been fascinated by his music and enigmatic lifestyle. Or my old friend Ron Murfett who is a jazz guitar teacher.

Whose posters did you have stuck to the wall as a teenager? 
Never did. 

What song would you like played at your funeral?
‘The Weight’ by The Band.

Finish this sentence. The thing people would be surprised to know about me... is that I always wanted to be an architect and am addicted to shows like Grand Designs.
