||What do a Japanese man fanning his penis in a train, a petrified Russian tour guide, a drunken Irish wife-basher, and an Australian trying to avoid the aftermath of 9-11 all have in common...? They are the inspiration for some of the extraordinary songs by Steve Tyson, from his recently released solo album TEMPLE DOG. The critically acclaimed record is a collection of stories from Tyson’s journeys through exotic locations throughout the world, and time spent on the European folk/roots festival circuit with his band Rough Red.
Said Tony Hillier in his 4 star review in the Weekend Australian ...
“TEMPLE DOG would assuredly have met with the approval of the great American writer Ernest Hemingway were he still around.”
Said Noel Mengel in his 4 star review in the Courier Mail..
“This is music with roots that go down deep....all of TEMPLE DOG is strong...”
But there is more to Tyson’s live performances than just incredible stories. He delivers the songs with great musicianship, passion and soul, with his band The Industrious Felons. With himself on acoustic guitar and mandolin, he is joined by longtime touring companions Dave Parnell (cocktail drums/acoustic guitar) and John Barr (bass).
