Although he was born in Poland, singer Lee Conway became an icon of Australian country music. He grew up in Melbourne and played in some amateur bands during the 1960s, before taking up a career as a trucker. As a sideline, Conway managed other musicians before deciding to set out as a solo performer. Recording a string of albums in the 1970s, Conway became one of Australia's top country artists and even toured abroad on several occasions. Here's a quick look at his work...
