Subtle, earthy and immediate with a wit that is the inevitable product of a uniquely off centre imagination and a healthy and profound cynicism, Steven Robinson’s lyric construction has been compared to Sam Shephard, John Cooper-Clark and Allan Ginsberg.
On the release of his first album ‘The Porter Street Tapes’, Steven was described by an American music industry chart as “Bob Dylan goes to the circus”. The disc was then picked up by college radio in Chicago and Atlanta.
In Australia, Triple J has been impressed enough to give airtime to everything Steven has produced, including two EPs and two albums. His most recent album ‘Between the Dog and Daylight’ also received time on 2SER FM and a feature on FBI with on-air interviews, live performance and giveaways.
Live, Steven has performed with various line-ups and numerous bands. From Newtown cafés to Selinas, Paddington Town Hall/RSL, the Sydney, Newtown and Glebe festivals and virtually every inner city venue, Steven has appeared as headline or as support to the likes of The Whitlams, Cruel Sea, Mick Hart, Anthony Morgan, the Infidels and Welter.
Somewhere between film noir, a road trip and a corporate massacre.
