Josh Pyke, Byron Brewery, tonight

Josh Pyke is gearing up to play one last run of shows before he heads off into the sunset to write his next album. Josh’s evident love of performing and hanging out with fans proved too much of a temptation to resist the chance to get back on stage for one more tour before he knuckles down and writes.

His Love Lies theatre tour in May received rave reviews from attendees who were delighted to see him play his choice of fan-favourites in a series of four intimate theatre performances. Audiences were engrossed with Josh’s hauntingly beautiful voice and delightful, and often hilarious, stage banter. His guitar, banjo and harmonica made an appearance and he even introduced a new recently acquired instrument into the mix.

Only Sparrows, Josh’s most recently released album, was written on the road and in New York and landed him with three ARIA nominations. This album features the upbeat much-loved single No One Wants A Lover and iconic Australian performers such as Katy Steele joined Josh in the recording of harmonic songs like Punch In The Heart.

This album followed on from his gold-selling ARIA award-winning albums Memories & Dust (2007) and Chimney’s Afire (2008). With such success, it is no wonder that Josh is considered one of Australia’s finest modern songwriters. Friday at the Byron Brewery.
