Mistletone proudly presents Steve Gunn, returning to Australia this November for a run of headline shows in SydneyBrisbaneHobart and Castlemaine, as well as appearances at Mullum FestivalMelbourne Music Week and Coalchella. Full tour dates and ticket links above.

For over a decade, Steve Gunn has been one of American music’s most pivotal figures — conjuring immersive and psychedelic sonic landscapes both live and on record, releasing revered solo albums ranking high on in-the-know end of year lists, alongside exploratory collaborations with artists as diverse as Mike Cooper, Kurt Vile, and Michael Chapman (whose most recent studio album he produced).  Supremely gifted at the guitar, Gunn’s career has been steadily blossoming over the past decade, his virtuosic fingerstyle playing and ruminative sound making recent room for unfeigned, glowing vocals.

Gunn is known for telling other people’s stories, but on his breakthrough fourth album, The Unseen In Between, he explored his own emotional landscapes with his most complex, fully realized songs to date. The lyrics evoke voyages, tempests (actual and emotional), and a rich cast of characters met along the way — the work of an artist finding a place of calm in the midst of a storm.

Steve Gunn will be joined by New Zealand’s Tiny Ruins for three co-headline shows. For almost 10 years, Tiny Ruins has been the vehicle Hollie Fullbrook’s intimate songwriting. In the wake of the release of Olympic Girls Solo, an acoustic recording of her widely acclaimed third album on Milk! Records, Hollie joins Steve Gunn for co-headline shows in MelbourneCastlemaine and Sydney, in rare solo performances reflecting the sparse beauty and intricate guitar playing of her earliest work.

Grand Salvo (esteemed Melbourne artist Paddy Mann, who was recently shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize for his masterpiece Sea Glass) will open the State Library event in the Redmond Barry Reading Room; an invitation to drop into a place of stillness and attentive listening. Acclaimed Brisbane maestro of banjo and resonator guitar Andrew Tuttle will open in Castlemaine, Sydney and Hobart.
