Some read up on the man:
Steve Towson is taking stock of what has been, and what may become, with the release of his latest CD, a retrospective album of re-recorded material spanning his career since 2001.
His one man, one guitar approach allowed him to play “anywhere, anytime”, which he did with prolific intensity. In addition to taking his music to audiences within the relatively safe political climate of Australia, Steve has toured throughout South-East Asia numerous times. Despite the tight or turbulent political atmosphere in some countries, Steve has been unwavering in his advocacy for equitable social change.
A musical broadening occurred in 2006, when collaboration with fourteen musicians in Australia and SE Asia allowed Steve to develop the concept of his new backing band The Conscripts. He invited five musicians into the studio to work on a full-length release. Titled Shah Mat, it was an album of musical and lyrical diversity, which received strong support from Triple J’s Short.Fast.Loud and community radio, and was compared musically to Nick Cave, The Clash, The Pogues, The Ramones and Leonard Cohen.
Since the end of the Conscripts project, Steve has returned to his early “anti-folk” recordings, and responded to punters’ calls for a compilation of favourite tracks from his first three albums. The resulting retrospective CD (self-titled, 2009) is an exposition of simplicity, passion and raw honesty. His sincere lyrics are accompanied only by his characteristic guitar performance. The release is now on offer independently and during Steve’s launch tour in Oct 2009.
