After travelling abroad for the better part of three years, North East Victorian bred musician, Rick Steward has been living on the road and riding motorcycles through countless countries throughout Asia, the Middle East & Europe. Armed with only his guitar and back pack he’s played his music from the streets of Burma, across the Islands of Cambodia, on mountain tops in Thailand, busking his way through India and rocked music bars across Israel.
