Favourite son Steve Smyth returns for a short run of dates between legs of the never-ending European tour. After successful shows with the legend that is Tim Rogers in early May, Steve returns to trial new material and celebrate old.
A born wanderer, he grew up travelling around Australia as the son of ministers. His parents built churches from scratch, and from the age of four years old, he found himself constantly surrounded by music and people making it. Steve Smyth is one of those artists who draws you in even before you’ve heard him perform. There seems to be an energy that clings to him which reaps mystery and a deep, honest passion. And when you see him perform you feel like he’s conveying a million conversations, a million experiences filled with heartache, love, excitement… And he delivers his songs with pure honesty and an unconscious bliss. You can almost hear the churning out of his mind through his antique Remington typewriter.
“Music is something I do where I don’t have to pretend. It’s an honest place to be, and that humbles me. And I can’t get enough of that.” - Steve Smyth.
