Gum Leaf - the label of Emusic Pty Ltd, the publishing company owned and operated by Australian bush balladeer John Williamson. Williamson has been around since 1970 with previous records on Fable & Festival. Gumleaf was set up as a vehicle exclusively for his own music and has released quite a number of albums and singles on this label, all Australian bush ballads, songs and stories and all in the broad Aussie accent (his natural voice). Williamson flatly refuses to sing with a refined or an American Twang. Quote: “It's Australian or nothing”. He is still performing mainly in remote outback and country towns, rarely in the big cities (similar to the late Slim Dusty, of whom he admired).
Paul "Pixie" Jenkins is fiddler in John Williamson's Band.
