Steve Balbi- Great Southern Nights

November 20 @ 6:00 pm

We all know that good things come to those who wait… and we have all waited long enough for the return of live music!

But fear not. The wait is over!

Live music is coming back to the George IV inn this November.

On Friday 20th November Steve Balbi, the singer, composer, performer and producer is coming to the George IV Inn.
Steve Balbi transcends rock and pop while coalescing sentimentality and soul, he bespeaks Bowie and Dylan in melody and verse, exploring the heterogeneity, refinement and dirty rotten groove of Radiohead. First cutting his chops on bass with Kevin Borich Express at just 17 years of age, the creative chameleon’s species being was liberated when he cultivated an indelible production and song-writing partnership with Justin Stanley; founding and producing Aussie chart-toppers Noiseworks (1986), before forming Electric Hippies (1993). Numerous European tours, four multi-platinum award-winning albums, and various ARIA Award Nominations later, Balbi lifted his guitar from the rack to form Universe with Cathy Green (X) in 1996, working with Paisley Park’s Susan Rogers. Move Trees and Moon emerged in subsequent years. In 2011, Balbi accepted an invitation to front 1980s new-wavers Mi-Sex, whose timeless classic, Graffiti Crimes, scooped the pool at the 1979 Countdown/TV Week Awards – winning Best Album, Best/Most Popular Single (Computer Games), Best Producer (Peter Dawkins), and Best New Artist. Balbi’s eclectic catalogue of production credits transcend genres, for the dynamic assemblage of artists that he’s produced includes Noiseworks, Electric Hippies, Glenn Shorrock, Juice, Jenny Morris, Pearls & Swine, Toe to Toe, Vincent Stone, Fyre Byrd, Moon, and Christine Anu, among numerous others. And in 1999, Balbi sat in on vocals and guitar for David Bowie’s Hourssessions alongside legendary producer Marius de Vries (Madonna, Björk, Rufus Wainwright, et al.)
