In the past few years there has been much to enjoy in the later work of Australian songwriters such as Russell Morris, Glenn Cardier and Joe Camilleri. With Banjo’s Last Ride, Tyson delivers an album of powerful, passionate songcraft that is just as worthy of your time.” - Noel Mengel

.... the songs are small stories set in red dust and salt air...most of them paint pictures of uniquely Australian life” - Sam Fell

GARE DU NORD RESPONSE 31-10-2021

The response to our second single 'Gare du Nord' has been exceptional, thank you so much for your interest and support. Excitement mounts in our camp as we draw closer to the album release date of November 12th. Keep an eye out for it...

THE FIRST TWO SINGLES

Hey there. Very excited that the first single off the new album, a song called 'Berlin Bunker' has been out for a while now, and getting some good traction. The second single 'Gare du Nord' is being released on Friday 1st October. Of course we have had to postpone all our tour dates because of the COVID situation, and at this stage, we are re-arranging dates for February / March next year. Fingers crossed life is back to some sort of normal by then. We can't wait to be standing on a stage playing the new songs. In the meantime, stay safe, and enjoy the new single.

BANJO's LAST RIDE -- The New Album

I am beyond excited to announce the imminent release of my new album "Banjo's Last Ride", recorded with my touring band and dear friends The Train Rex. The first single from the album will be released on August 6th, with the album itself due for release in late October. The band will be hitting the road to tour the record from mid November through to December. Keep an eye out for the dates to be announced soon. Can't wait to get this one out there..!

SLOWLY GETTING BACK TO NORMAL

Hey there, I hope this finds you all well, and that life has returned to at least some sort of normal for you in these continuing strange times. Fortunately live gigs have started to happen again, and I have been playing in solo mode in and around hometown Byron Bay these past couple of months. I have gigs coming up at Byron's favourite music pub The Rails later this month and late in March -- check the SHOWS section for details.

Not being able to get my regular touring band together during the restrictions, I have played a couple of shows in Brisbane with a new line-up, still featuring my mighty guitar & slide player "Sal" Shawsmith. Joining us has been my old Rough Red bandmate Dave "Mash" Parnell on drums, and the most excellent Jodi Murtha on bass. We have a rather special gig coming up in Brisbane on Sunday February 28th, in that we will be playing an old fashioned pub gig at Ballistic Brewery, Salisbury, from 3pm to 6pm. As well as songs from my albums and recent singles, we'll also be playing some selected covers, plus songs by Jodi and Mash. Should be a lot of fun. Again, check the SHOWS section for full details.  If you looking for something to do on a lazy Sunday afternoon, come on out to Ballistic Brewery and catch up.

On the new album front, Sal is not far away from coming down to Studio Rue du Temple to record his guitar parts, so I am hopeful we are going to have the new record released mid-year. Cannot wait to get it out there.....Cheers
