Name: Steve Tyson and the Train Rex.
Brief Blurb: Steve Tyson is well known to Brisbane audiences as one of the main songwriters and guitarist in long-standing folk-rock favourites Rough Red. These days based in Byron Bay, Steve has also released three critically acclaimed solo records in recent years, his latest WRONG TRAIN RIGHT STATION.

Highly regarded music journalist Noel Mengel, has had this to say about the album…. “Steve Tyson does darkness very well with regret-tinged songs of missed chances and jealous-rage murder tales, but he balances these with songs with a twinkle in the eye or tongue in cheek. The wry and dark humour is never far from the surface, and the DIY aesthetic gives plenty of room for Tyson’s powerful guitar work. The tracks on this third solo set reveal a master song craftsman with a nuanced lyrical touch and strong melodies. There is always plenty of grit in the musical delivery here. Nothing is over-polished, but these are songs that are built to last”.

Other reviewers have weighed in with these comments….

“Steve Tyson once again delivers a compelling selection of distinctly Australian storytelling.”— Kim Cheshire, Country Update

“...telling tales of home and family, of travel and politics, wrapped in a dark sense of humour that sets him apart from the myriad others plying a similar trade”— Sam Fell, Rhythms

Steve has been touring the record throughout Australia with a new band, The Train Rex. The band includes Steve’s longtime bass partner from Rough Red, John Barr, plus Sydney drummer Andy Kirkcaldie, and Brisbane-based guitarist Ian Shawsmith.
