After exploring ‘High Country Snows’ with Bill Chambers, Kevin Sullivan is back with the feel-good, tongue-in-cheek ‘Spend The Kids Inheritance’. The vibe of the song is set from the very beginning, as soon as you hear the ukulele playing ‘Aloha Oe’, it makes you want to appreciate not only today but the rest of your days.
Helping us value that all important work/life balance, Kevin wrote the song after meeting so many grey nomads while on tour. The common thread in countless conversations was how they were rewarding themselves and more importantly not feeling guilty about investing in their happiness and a long and happy life.
Whilst Kevin’s initial thought process was of retirement, the song became so much more. People of all ages are now realising that we need to get out there and really start living. If the past 18 months has taught us anything it’s that we need to think differently about how we live.
Kevin adds, “The song is almost an anthem to the grey nomads and those living every second. When I sing this song live, everyone in the audience gets it; they cheer, particularly the retirees, they nod and say, ‘yes, that’s what we are doing’. But there’s also the personal side of the story. With my career path from the Forensic Police to touring musician and my wife Belinda’s career as a CEO, we’ve slowly realised you can change your paradigm. What we have experienced since our sponsorship with Sunland Off Road Caravans and meeting so many caravaning people is that you can get off the daily grind. It’s never too late to get out there and LIVE”.
‘Spend The Kids Inheritance’ is the 5th single from what will be Kevin’s 2nd album. With a working title of “Against The Tide”, no release date has been set. Previous singles include the Number 1 iTunes Country Music Top Songs chart Australia, ‘High Country Snows’ (March 2021), ‘Against The Tide’ (Sept 2020), ‘Pilgrimage’ (April 2020) and ‘Just Don’t Mention Christmas’ (Nov 2019).
Kevin, Belinda and their three youngest children are currently touring QLD in their custom-built van. Premium Australian caravan company Sunland, have designed and built the family a 3.5 tonne family caravan & named it in their honour… The Sunland Sulli-Van. This is the 2nd leg of the Sulli-Van Tour returning home to NSW (Gerringong, NSW South Coast) in October 2021… at this stage!
