Name: Steve Tyson with Ian Shawsmith
Brief Blurb:

From three critically acclaimed records, Steve Tyson delivers contemporary folk songs infused with blues, intimate story-telling one minute, swaggering alt.country the next, but decidedly Australian in content and scoring reviews such as these..

“…a master song craftsman with a nuanced lyrical touch and strong melodies. ” (Noel Mengel) “..this album is a tour de force from one of Australia's leading contemporary songwriters.” (Trad & Now) “Tyson lets his ruined voice and lucid guitars do the talking” (Courier Mail)

“... a dark sense of humour sets him apart from the myriad others plying a similar trade” (Rhythms) “In Tyson’s follow-up to his auspicious debut album, family history again proves a rich source of inspiration, with his smoky singing and skilful guitar…” (Weekend Australian)

Also well known to audiences as a member of seminal folk-rock band Rough Red, Steve delivers his songs in a variety of formats, performing solo or with his touring band The Train Rex. For this post-lockdown show, Steve will be joined by his Train Rex guitarist Ian “Sal” Shawsmith.
