Keith Lionel Urban
Born October 26, 1967 in Whangerei New Zealand, raised in Caboolture and Tamworth Australia.

Claimed by the country as one of its greatest music exports. His career began at a very early age as a guitarist/duet with Jenny Wilson on the TV show The Reg Lindsay Country Homestead.

In the early 1990’s after chart success in Australia and several trips back and forwards to Nashville, Keith made the U.S.A his new home, working as a session guitarist.

He formed the band The Ranch, then went solo after treatment for cocaine addiction during 1998. Keith plays acoustic and electric guitar, banjo, bass, mandolin, piano and bouzouki.

When he’s not recording, he and his wife Nicole Kidman spend their time trying to elude paparazzi.
