Steve Tyson & The Northern Train Rex

Singer-songwriter Steve Tyson has released a new album, about which respected music critic Noel Mengel said this… ‘In the past few years there has been much to enjoy in the 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.’

Live, Steve delivers songs from the new album plus some ‘greatest hits’ from previous records with his stellar band The Northern Train Rex.

Jumping Fences

Jumping Fences — the hosts of Foco Nuevo — play a unique mix of original and Latin American songs. The song-writing partnership of Sue Monk on guitar and vocals, and Lachlan Hurse on electric bass, together with James Harper on drums and Ross Gwyther on tenor sax and clarinet, perform arrangements that move between tenderness and energy. Over three decades their poetic and insightful lyrics have explored the lives and feelings of people living on the margins or caught in the midst of struggle.

‘Sometimes you can sing what you cannot say…’
