Name: Steve Tyson and the Train Rex.
Brief Blurb:

From three critically acclaimed records, Steve & The Train Rex deliver 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)

“… a compelling selection of distinctly Australian storytelling.” (Country Update)

“Tyson lets his ruined voice and lucid guitars do the talking” (Courier Mail)

“... a dark sense of humour that sets him apart from the myriad others plying a similar trade” (Rhythms)

“… a rich source of inspiration, with his smoky singing and skilful guitar…” (Weekend Australian)

Steve and The Train Rex - bass player John Barr, drummer Andy Kirkcaldie, and guitarist Ian Shawsmith – is a band equally at home playing in intimate acoustic mode, or delivering the late night party set. A new record featuring the band will be released during 2019.
