ARIA Hall of Fame Inductees Glenn Shorrock and Brian Cadd have reunited for a studio album and National tour – The Story of Sharky and the Caddman. The album is in store on October 18, with the national tour kicking off in November 2013.

Shorrock and Cadd are Australian Musical icons – both known for their incredible songwriting and performing talents. They first collaborated in 1969 when they formed Axiom, an Australian ‘supergroup’ designed to take on the English Market. Through Axiom they had huge Australian hits including Arkansas Grass, A Little Ray Of Sunshine and My Baby’s Gone.

Throughout the years, Shorrock (Little River Band) and Cadd (The Groop and esteemed songwriter) have collaborated on various projects and their latest, The Story of Sharky and the Caddman is something quite spectacular.

The Story of Sharky and the Caddman features a wonderful collection of Axiom songs, a selection of Shorrock and Cadd’s own timeless hits and some exciting new material, all bathed in the magic of this renewed ensemble.

The album was recorded in Melbourne with legendary engineer Doug Brady and a superb band featuring Axiom drummer Doug Lavery and Chris Stockley, together with See and Mason.

On the collaboration Cadd says “The two of us have been mates since we were little more than kids. Musically we just always seemed to click and our voices have a most unique sound together. We’ve certainly been on all the rides and every step and adventure has been laced with humour and fun. It happened all during the recording sessions and I’m certain will continue on the road. The status remains very much quo”.


“In recent times Brian and I talked about a reformation of Axiom which was a fairly brief but wonderful part of our musical lives…and which spring boarded us both into the international music scene. This album and tour is made especially enjoyable by the inclusion of Stockley, See and Mason as well as our original Axiom drummer Doug Lavery in the lineup.” Says Shorrock.


Shorrock is best known as part of the internationally acclaimed Little River Band and mega hits including Reminiscing, Help is on Its Way, Home on a Monday and the classic Cool Change. In, addition to success with The GROOP, Cadd has penned songs for Joe Crocker, Ringo Starr, The Pointer Sisters, Bonnie Tyler, Charlie Daniels and many more.
