||Steve Tyson and the New Felons
||Steve Tyson’s debut solo album TEMPLE DOG, released in 2011, was a collection of eclectic folk songs, that resonated with critics in Australia. Inspired by a lifetime of extensive travels through exotic locations such as India, Japan and Russia, this set of extraordinary songs drew 4 star reviews in the national music press.
With a musical pedigree that includes playing in Chuck Berry’s touring band, supporting legendary rockers Status Quo on a 31 date tour of the UK, plus six European tours and seven albums as guitarist/mandolin player with Australian folk-rock band Rough Red, Tyson has mined his well of experience to create his follow-up album GREEN SIDE UP. For much of the inspiration for this new record, Steve had to look no further than his family history, with stories of his great-grandmother’s tough life in rural Queensland, his great uncle’s capture and imprisonment during the Great War, intertwined with matters of the heart, stories from the road, and a healthy dose of black humour.
A punter at a recent festival summed up Steve Tyson’s music pretty well …
“ These are songs that touch all the emotions, songs that will make you cry one moment, and laugh the next….”
Steve delivers these songs live with passion, soul, humour, and fine musicianship, with his longtime bandmates, branded for this tour as The New Felons
