Steve Kilbey presents Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, together with pianist Amanda Kramer on 3rd March 2019 at Foundry616.
Steve Kilbey is Australian contemporary music royalty. A prolific artist who has written, performed and produced 21 solo albums, as well as 30 with rock legends The Church. He frequently collaborates with notable artists worldwide and has over a dozen albums with these creative partners, in addition to the aforementioned bodies of work. His artistic oeuvre spans more than 45 years, and reaches outside the world of music, flowing in a cellular formation through his poetic lyrics into his psychedelic art paintings and far beyond. Steve has published three books (with a new one in the works), written 750 songs, conjured lyrics of biblical proportions, poured out plenteous poetry and imagined and realized hundreds of original paintings.
As lead singer, bassist and co-songwriter for The Church, Steve has sold millions of albums. He has a global following and nowhere more so than in America which has always been a tough nut to crack for Australian bands. His audiences are intergenerational, both through his work with The Church, and his collaborations with many international artists, and of course his huge solo work (over 36 solo albums).
The Church recently performed in the ‘By the C’ festival this summer, joining Icehouse, Sunnyboys, Do Re Mi and Mental as Anything. They head off in April to the US East Coast to continue the 30t h anniversary of Starfish tour, which sold out in cities around Australia late last year.
His latest album Sydney Rococo was released in November of 2018. A collection of songs written over the last 5 years, the lyrics reminisce about Sydney and her ocean pools, the underground seedy hangouts and treachery. This weekend he performs a rare solo show at Foundry616, made extra special by the presence of Amanda Kramer, who is currently in Sydney. Don’t miss the musical magic and chemistry between these two veteran musicians.
Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue plays at Foundry616 March 3.
