AAA Backstage Presents Brisbane Folk Club #5
AAA Backstage is proud to present the fifth instalment of Brisbane Folk Club! The monthly music event is all about celebrating the best local and national folk music. Prepare your dancing shoes for the April lineup, featuring the lyrical stylings of the Christopher Coleman Collective, the sweet and soulful vocals of Sian Evans, and the multi-faceted genre-crossing tunes of Steve Tyssen.
CHRISTOPHER COLEMAN COLLECTIVE
Following sold-out shows around Australia, New Zealand, the UK, and the US, the Christopher Coleman Collective have been gearing up to release their second album ‘Ah, Winter’.
Coleman’s 2014 hit Go Home highlights his penchant for building his sound from the ground up with his catchy guitar rhythms and raw, honest lyrics: ‘You must keep your distance when on this road/For I say too far is better than too close, I tell ya/When you’re walking this highway and you’re on your own’.
Catch more of his soulful sounds when ‘Ah, Winter’ is released later this year.

With three Queensland Music Award nominations to her name and a host of successful supporting performances for the likes of Toni Childs and Katie Noonan, Brisbane country roots songstress Sian Evans is building on a strong foundation.
On her latest track Take Me Home, Evans reveals equal measures of sweetness and strength in her voice, matching it up with classically endearing country instrumentation. As the track layers strings and thickened percussion over the banjo, the track takes on a new energy that country lovers everywhere will adore.
Evans is currently on tour promoting her latest album ‘Cold Feet’.

Aussie multi-instrumentalist Steve Tyssen spent the early years of his career as a drummer for a handful of Brisbane bands including The Royal Artillery and Greenthief before kicking off his songwriting career in 2013.
His 2015 track The Only Living Animal captured hearts and imaginations with an edgy blend of timeless acoustic instrumentation, pure vocal harmonies, and touches of other-wordly synthesisers. Halfway through, the track morphs into an epic rock tune with heavy electric guitar and crashing drums – an unexpected, yet brilliant twist. Tyssen currently has a string of acoustic live shows lined up to build anticipation for his upcoming album release later this year.
