I took this portrait of a very young Keith Urban when he was getting ready to take on the world. Keith won Starmaker in 1990. He was a superstar even in those early days. Keith’s hair may have changed since he started out but he’s always been a great talent.

Here’s Keith’s video for his song Long Hot Summer from his official youtube channel.

  1. [...] Early ’90s: Urban was a little bit of everything before he left his native Australia. He had some spiky Billy Idol hair for a while, some long surfer beachy waves and what appears to be a bit of over-processed mess of platinum hair.

  2. love Keith…love summer..love the beach….my daughter came from Chicago to SanDiego and I came from Las Vegas to SanDiego to go to Keiths’ concert in Chula Vista…we had so much fun and loved the show!!!!! I don’t care if Keiths’ head is bald…what an amazing talent……..like the song says…don’t stop!!!!

  3. He was born in Whangarei NZ in 1967 and was raised in Australia from aged 2 so hes a KIWI.
