My first Country Update magazine contribution

In March, Denise Torenbeek asked me to review artist Allan Caswell  for her Country Update magazine. She couldn't have found a better fit for me because he's written an album of kids songs and I have a hoard of them racing around the house making a mess. 

I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and found Allan to be a genuinely entertaining bloke. His kids' CD was pretty damn good too. You would probably recognize many of the songs because he wrote a lot of them with Playschool's Don Spencer, who has previously released them on his own CD's. Even I've heard of Bob The Kelpie.

"Sheep are cute, sheep are beaut
Sheep are soft and curly
When I take them into town
I have to start out early
Cause they never go the way I want
So I need someone to help me
I just give a whistle
And I call for Bob the kelpie"

I'm really chuffed to be included in such a fantastic magazine. It sounds a bit girly, but I may have squealed when Denise dropped a copy of the mag into my office. I'm telling myself I gave a happy chortle, but my memory is shaking it's head disbelievingly.

If you're into country music, it's worth a read. Especially the piece on page 38 :) Country Update Website

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
