Allan Caswell is Australian Country Music’s most recorded songwriter with a 50-year career as a songwriter, performer, producer and writer.
His iconic song, On The Inside, which was the theme for the internationally successful television series Prisoner, brought him chart success around the world and started the career that has enabled him to work full time as a songwriter since 1979.
As a country singer/songwriter he has been awarded 8 Golden Guitars (from 44 final nominations) , 14 Tamworth Songwriters’ Association awards, 9 Southern Star Awards (Independent Country Music Awards including Album of the Year 3 times).
Among his numerous music industry awards are an APRA Award, an ARIA, 2 Gold Singles, 3 Gold and 2 Platinum Albums for his writing and production work.
Caswell has also had a huge career writing and producing children’s music, notably co-writing and co-producing the hugely successful Don Spencer albums.
A half-century on stage has taken him to almost every town in NSW, every state of Australia, New Zealand, LA, Nashville, New York, East Timor, Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan.
Caswell’s life is all about his songs and his songs are all about his life. He lives in the Blue Mountains with his wife Marian, when he’s not touring, doing concerts, running songwriting workshops or co-writing with some of Australia’s finest artists.
My Version Of The Truthtraces Allan’s life from growing up in the Mountains of North Wales, through the migrant experience in Australia and the early days of what was to become a very successful music career on a delightful roller coaster ride of a life. It rolls through marriages and divorces, children and grandchildren, hard times and good times, awards and rejection, causes and politics. His songs have taken all around the world from the warzones of the Middle East to the clubs and studios of Nashville and have brought him elation, respect and disappointment in equal portions
My Version Of The Truth is warm, real, honest and often funny with a total absence of punch pulling. Caswell’s “adventures” in an often heartless and uncompromising music business is set against an interesting life full of battles, wins and occasional losses
A proud Australian by choice, he has spent 50 years making his mark on Australia’s music … it’s time to hear his … Version Of The Truth
