Little River Band co-founder and songwriter Graeham Goble has been named to receive the Medal (OAM) of the Order of Australia in the 2021 Australia Day honours.

Goble has been given the award for his work in the bands Mississippi and Little River Band. His song ‘Reminiscing’ was a favourite of John Lennon. It has also been given a BMI Five Million-Air award for over 5 million plays on US radio.

In a statement Graeham wrote, “It is such a great honour to be awarded the medal of the Order of Australia.

“Writing, recording and performing my songs has been my life’s joy.

“Eternal thanks to all the talented musicians who have contributed so much to my music.

“And to everyone who has supported me in my journey”.

Graeham also wrote LRB’s ‘Lady’, ‘Take It Easy On Me’, ‘The Other Guy’ and ‘The Night Owls’.

Prior to forming Little River Band in 1975 with Glenn Shorrock, Beeb Birtles and Derek Pellicci, Goble, Shorrock and Pellicci were Mississippi. Their biggest hit was ‘Kings of the World’ (no 7, 1972).
