‘A Little Ray Of Sunshine’ was the second hit for Australian band Axiom, featuring Brian Cadd and Glenn Shorrock.

Glenn Shorrock and Brian Cadd are two of Australia’s living rock legends.

Glenn Shorrock first rose to fame as a member of The Twilights, with guitarist Terry Britten who went on to become one of the most successful songwriters of the rock era.

After The Twilights he teamed with Brian Cadd and formed Axiom. Their song ‘A Little Ray Of Sunshine’ is now a rock classic and is still played daily on Australian radio.

Glenn then formed Little River Band and was catapulted to international success.

Brian Cadd started out in the 60s in The Groop. They had a big hit with ‘Woman You’re Breaking Me’, written by Cadd. Brian also wrote Axiom’s ‘A Little Ray of Sunshine’ and then as a solo artists had a string of his own hits ‘Ginger Man’, ‘Let Go’ and ‘Show Me The Way’ and covers of ‘The Shoop Shoop Song’ and ‘Your Mama Can’t Dance’ with The Bootleg Family.

Shorrock and Cadd are performing together across Australia in a three-hour show performing all of their hits. The Story of Sharky and the Caddman tour starts in New South Wales on January 16, 2014.
