Q&A Scene: Stu Tyrrell

Tell us about your new single/ album/ tour?
I’m touring through NSW and the ACT in May/June to promote my debut EP “Celtic Roots.” The tour is a mix of folk club, singer-songwriter nights and showcase concerts with a few special events on the heavier side including Aftershock in Sydney and Brutalcoustic in Canberra.

What’s your favourite work at this point in time?
The Saint of Kings Cross. It’s the only original on the EP, which makes it pretty special. I released it as a digital single on ANZAC Day, and a music video is in the works for later this year.

Tell us a quick, on the road or studio, anecdote.

I’m touring through NSW and the ACT in May/June to promote my debut EP “Celtic Roots.”

Walking around Glen Innes at the Australian Celtic Festival and everyone knew my name. I had to check a few times that I wasn’t wearing a name tag!

What, or who, inspires you?
My family and loved ones. I think there’s a little bit about one of them in all of my songs.

Which song do you wish you wrote?
South of Santa Fe – Brooks & Dunn.

How would you describe your sound in food form and why?
Christmas Dinner where all the food is piled up in the middle of the table and you get to choose as much as you like.

What’s next for you?
Two very different shows in my home town Sydney – one at a folk club, the other at a metal club! Followed by the second half of the tour taking in regional NSW and the ACT.

What’s your scene?
Wearing the blackest, scariest “this band will crush everything” t-shirt at a folk gig, and vice versa at a metal gig.
