Live Review: Steve Smyth + Spookyland - Oxford Art Factory, Sydney (25.04.15)

It isn’t hard to imagine Steve Smyth as some depression era tramp, travelling across the country trading a story and a song for a meal and then moving along to the next destination. Sure his wild and wiry beard lend themselves greatly to this image, but there is more to it than that. There is an unbridled spirit and passion that is contained within his performances and music. Each song is played as if his life depends upon it and that he would be lost if he was anywhere else. It’s this passion that has seen him move from playing small pubs and clubs to headlining the Oxford Art Factory on ANZAC Day with minimal promotion.

the AU interview at SXSW: Steve Smyth (Sydney) talks SXSW, partying, touring, Byron Bay Bluesfest and what's next

the AU review's Larry Heath caught up with Aussie musician Steve Smyth at SXSW. In this interview, Steve tells us about his SXSW experience, "I've come for the party, and to enjoy and catch up with great bands all in the one place..." Bar-hopping was also definitely on the agenda, "the drinks just keep flowing (they're very generous with their pours)... It's such a circus, it's wild."

SXSW Live Music Review: The Aussie BBQ ft. The Delta Riggs, REMI, Steve Smyth & more - Brush Square Park (21.03.15)

The Aussie BBQ returned to Brush Square Park this year, the 2015 edition of the SXSW event bringing the likes of The Delta Riggs, Tigertown, Hiatus Kaiyote to two tents set up on the east and west sides of the park. While last year's Aussie BBQ battled the fire marshal, the main element set against us was the first big day of consistent rain in Austin this SXSW - the weather didn't hamper the mood much however, with the beers and BBQ food continuing to prove popular with those in attendance.

Live Review: Secret Garden Festival - Cobbitty (28.02.15)

A magical, wild and completely creative festival of music and art, Secret Garden Festival 2015 once again proved itself to be an event well worth experiencing. A camping festival that spans from Friday 27th to Saturday 28th February, Secret Garden is on a beautiful farm out in Cobbitty NSW, just an hour’s drive from Sydney yet well and truly removed from the city scene.

Album Review: Steve Smyth - Exits (2014 LP)

Steve Smyth’s music is an exquisite splice of gritty rock and elegant romanticism, blending polar opposites on his latest release, Exits. The Australian-native’s distinctive growl drives this tracklist, contrasted by occasional flutters of velvety tones and delicate strings.

SAFIA, George Maple and more added to the SXSW Music programme!

In case you missed the news over the weekend, SXSW just keeps on getting bigger, with more names being added to the 2015 Music line up!
