With four albums and many national tours under his belt, one of Australia’s most adored artists Josh Pyke is taking his much loved live show out on the wide open road to perform solo, heading into the heart of Australia, performing to his most regional fans, just him and his guitar.
The tour commences June 6 at the Montrose Town Centre in Victoria, taking Josh to some of Australia’s most remote stages on this very intimate regional tour.
To prepare for the many long drives ahead, Josh put together his favourite videos that represent regional Australia and being out on the road.
Midnight Oil – Beds Are Burning
This clip blew my mind as a young guy. The outback as it’s portrayed in the clip was really foreign to me even though it’s my own country. Really struck a chord in me.
The Triffids – Wide Open Road
Such a beautiful track. Wayne Connoly (who produced a bunch of my records) turned me onto this track, and when I saw the clip I was touring the UK heaps, and this made me miss home in a really poignant way.
Basement Birds – Not the One
We shot this clip about 2 hrs out of Perth in WA, and the red dirt against the gums is just the classic outback setting for me. Fun to make.
Yothu Yindi – Treaty
Not much that hasn’t been said about the importance of this clip and song itself. Such a big track and a big moment in Oz music.
Rattlesnake Ft. Dan Sultan – Way of the Eagle
I love how this is kinda outback (frill neck lizards etc) and kinda western. Just a great twist on the idea of a western.
