We are over the moon to welcome back Dyson Stringer Cloher, a trio of Australia's true songwriting luminaries. These three singer-songwriters came together in 2013 to release a three-track EP and subsequently played The Gum Ball in 2014.
In the intervening six years Dyson Stringer Cloher all pursued their solo careers – releasing a combined six studio albums, winning multiple awards and touring globally – but the flipside was that their band became a fond memory and a series of tantalising unanswered questions. What would happen if they wrote a full album together? What could these incredible musicians achieve if they dedicated more time to this project?
In 2019 we have our answer. Dyson Stringer Cloher’s self titled debut album is out through Milk! Records this October. With Dyson based in L.A and Stringer in Toronto, the band chose to meet halfway to make a record at Jeff Tweedy’s ‘The Loft’ in Chicago. Taking on production duties themselves, they asked Wilco’s Glenn Kotche to join them on drums and Grammy Award winner Tom Schick to engineer. The results are what you might expect - inspired guitar playing and exceptional songwriting - warm, heartfelt and real.
Times are changing for women in Australian music, there have been casualties along the way. We can be thankful then, that Dyson Stringer Cloher have chosen to stay.
