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

— Loudmouth Magazine

Steve has fashioned a fine, entrancing, delightful album of superb songs. Another masterpiece from a master songwriter” - Ian Dearden

— Trad & Now

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

INTERRUPTED TOUR DATES  17-03-2022

Seems we can't take a trick lately. The 'Banjo's Last Ride' tour kicked off in great fashion with some mighty shows in Byron Bay and South East Queensland. We were then set to head south to play Sydney, Canberra, and the NSW South Coast, when the devastating floods hit the NSW Northern Rivers and Brisbane. I was stranded for a few days, Jodi was cut off, and Sal copped water through his house. Then the  highways south were cut and we couldn't get through anyway. On top of that, even if we had made it to Sydney, the bad weather smashed the NSW capital and surrounds, so it wouldn't have been a great weekend for punters to get to a gig!

As shattered as we were, we were all safe and well, unlike so many people who lost their homes. I was at least able to spend a few days helping friends with the clean up.

We were able to head west last week, into outback Queensland, and play a handful of shows to communities that have been starved of live music for a couple of years. We plan to reschedule the southern dates, so will let you know about that as soon as possible. Victoria will come later in the year.

Reaction to 'Banjo's Last Ride' continues to blow us away. Thank you to everyone who has bought a CD or downloaded tracks...

Hope to see you soon, back on the road! Best, Steve

BANJO's LAST RIDE 23-01-2022

The new album was released in November, and we are blown away with the response. Great reviews in the national music press, and terrific support from community radio throughout the country. We were all set to launch the album live at the Tamworth CM Festival, before the band was hit with a COVID situation, and then a few days later the festival was cancelled anyway. Frustrating times for those of us trying to get our music out there live. We have a bunch of shows coming up in Queensland, New South Wales and the ACT (check the SHOWS section on the web site here), and we hope to schedule gigs in Victoria sometime soon. Thank you for your response to the album, our videos are getting an incredible reaction with over 10,000 views, up to 14,000 views for each of the singles. We cannot wait to finally be standing on a stage playing the new songs live to you. Best, Steve
