Sydney singer-songwriter Stu Tyrrell will launch his debut EP Celtic Roots in Australia’s Celtic capital, Glen Innes during Celtic Weekend, May 5 & 6.
Breathing new life into traditional English and Celtic Folk songs, Stu re-imagines them into stomping, roots infused arrangements that are then interwoven with acoustic heavy metal to deliver something completely original. Stu’s original material speaks of social justice and solidarity while touching on his personal experiences of love, loss, depression and triumph.
A veteran of the stage, notably as touring bassist for ex Iron Maiden frontmen Paul Dianno and Blaze Bayley on their Australian tours, Stu currently performs as a solo artist at folk clubs and on the Sydney songwriters circuit in his signature stripped-down style.
The EP’s final track, The Saint of Kings Cross is about legendary Kings Cross Bikers Social and Welfare Club founder and cultural icon Randall “Animal” Nelson OAM. The track will be released on April 25 as a digital single preceding the EP.
Celtic Roots will be available on May 1 on CD and digitally. Pre order and receive Number Of The Beast immediately as a high quality download as MP3, FLAC and more
