After 25 years as the honey-voiced singer of the Blackeyed Susans who boast multiple ARIA nominations, tours with Johnny Cash, Leonard Cohen and Wilco, Rob Snarski has just released launched his solo album, “Wounded Bird”.
Produced by Rob and longtime bandmate and collaborator Dan Luscombe with Yikesville studio boss Shane O’Mara, “Wounded Bird” foregoes the lush arrangements of The Blackeyed Susans for a stripped-back and intimate sound palette.
Think Ricky Nelson meets Mazzy Star or the Everly Brothers if they’d been raised on a diet of Big Star’s Third.
“Wounded Bird” may be as pure an expression of Rob Snarski’s oeuvre as we are yet to hear. His first solo album may have been a long time coming, but it is worth the wait.
He plays with fellow Susan JP Shilo SUNDAY 28TH SEPT.
