Allan Caswell

At the 2018 Tamworth Country Music Festival, Allan Caswell was inducted into the prestigious Galaxy Of Stars. It was recognition for the huge contribution he has made to Australian Country Music as a songwriter, performer, record producer and author.

Caswell is one of Australia’s most recorded songwriters with well over 750 of his songs being released around the world by artists of the calibre of Cilla Black, Patti Page, The Irish Rovers, The Living End, Slim Dusty, James Blundell, Beccy Cole, Jasmine Rae, McAlister Kemp, Travis Collins, Graeme Connors, The Wolfe Brothers, Anne Kirkpatrick, Chad Morgan, Aleyce Simmonds, Amber Lawrence and Lynne Hamilton among dozens of others.

In 1979 Caswell wrote the theme for the Australian television series Prisoner (Cell Block H in England). On The Inside was a number 1 hit in Australia and New Zealand in 1979 and later reached number 3 in the UK and the Patti Page version made the country charts in the USA. After the success of On The Inside, he went fulltime and has made a living writing and performing ever since.

A glittering career in Country Music in Australia has netted Caswell 7 Golden Guitars (Country Music Awards Of Australia) from 38 finalist nominations. He has also been awarded ten songwriting Awards from the Tamworth Songwriters Association and nine Southern Star Awards.
