Steve Tyson On Tour With New ‘Green Side Up’ Record, 2014

Steve Tyson is doing what good indy musicians do: hitting the road to tour a new album.

‘Green Side Up’ is the new record, and from Byron Bay to Port Phillip Bay returning via Wagga Wagga, Canberra and Wongawilli Wongawilli Wongawilli (because he’s been everywhere, man) and Marrickville.

A lot of miles and a lot of different beds! And lots of new faces, new fans and the CD stocks starting to deplete as Steve Tyson and the band wend their back up past Taree, Forster, Tuncurry, and a thousand blanky roadworks.

The album has already had great reviews and you can see what all the fuss is about at Steve’s upcoming gigs.

On Remembrance Day 2014, a very tired Bill Quinn rang from the Kingsgrove RSL to speak with a slightly more chipper Steve Tyson, who was lounging around the Curly Flat Winery at Lancefield.

The sound quality is a little rough and red-dy. Which is appropriate, really.

Folk and jazz trio RAPT are letting their self-titled debut album loose on a willing and eager public at Fairlight Folk this Saturday night, 8 November 2014.

William St Studios 3 William St, Fairlight (the old Church off Sydney Road) Fairlight NSW Doors 7pm, music from 7.30pm $20 adults. $15 concessions. Tickets at the door.

The album had its initial outing at this year’s Folk By The Sea in Kiama and now returns closer to the band members’ home territory (Sydney and the Blue Mountains), landing on the north shore to what is sure to be a welcoming crowd.

RAPT are Ann Palumbo, Paul Laszlo and Rosie McDonald, the last of these being a recent former resident of Fairlight, and one of the hard-working volunteers that makes the quarterly Fairlight music venue tick along.

RAPT have been playing gigs and festivals for a couple of years and their debut self-titled album will gladden a growing legion of fans who have been asking when they can have something recorded to enjoy between those gigs and fests.

RAPT will be ably supported at their launch by the urban roots music of Terry Serio’s Ministry of Truth and the poetry stylings of Brendan Reed Dennis.
