Steve Tyson and The New Felons

With a musical pedigree that includes playing in Chuck Berry’s touring band, supporting legendary rockers Status Quo on a 31 date tour of the UK, plus six European tours and seven albums as guitarist/mandolin player with Australian folk-rock band Rough Red, Tyson has mined his well of experience to create his follow-up album Green Side Up.

For much of the inspiration for this new record, Steve had to look no further than his family history, with stories of his great-grandmother’s tough life in rural Queensland, his great uncle’s imprisonment and escape during the Great War, and his French ancestors’ perilous encounter with murder, intertwined with matters of the heart, stories from the road, and a healthy dose of black humour.

The album has received two outstanding reviews in recent weeks, Courier Mail **** 'these tunes take the listener to places and times we might never go otherwise' and 4 stars in the Weekend Australian, 'stringed instrument whiz Steve Tyson’s follow-up to an auspicious debut, family history proves a rich source of inspiration'
