STEVE TYSSEN

Steve Tyssen is an Australian multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and record producer. He is best known for playing drums in Brisbane bands Eddy Blue, 1989, Greenthief and The Royal Artillery.

In late 2013, Tyssen's obsession with songwriting finally became his priority which led him to self-record and produce his debut EP 'All That You Want Is Everything', released in October 2013. A 6-track indie-folk outing with lush arrangements and contrasting themes, with Tyssen playing every instrument on the EP and completely recording it himself in his home studio.

In 2014, Tyssen spent 6 months in South America, where he toured his solo work extensively. During this period, he also wrote most of the material for his first full-length album 'Friends And Other Enemies', which was independently released on 14 July 2015. Like the first EP, this album was self-recorded and produced back in Australia by Tyssen, and it features more complex and varied instrumentation with a slight lean towards more alternative and electronic sounds.

His second album 'Love To Love' was released in 2016, featuring collaborations with with singer Jess Lean from The Brains Trust. For this sophomore release, Tyssen added even more layers and new elements to a constantly evolving sound.

Tyssen is now based in Melbourne where he has finished recording his third solo album 'Invitations', which is set for release in late 2017.

Steve Tyssen (originally from Brisbane, Australia) is a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, record producer and member of Melbourne bands Muck and Deathbeat.

Tyssen's love of songwriting has seen him independently release an EP and six solo albums on which he plays and records all the instruments himself in his home studio. His unique brand of lofi indie/rock has been described as a mixture of Elliott Smith, Fleet Foxes, Tame Impala and Gorillaz.

Debut EP All That You Want Is Everything (October 2013) was shortly followed by debut album Friends and Other Enemies (July 2015). Sophomore Love to Love was released in 2016, featuring Without a Bottle, included on Spotify's Infinite Indie Folk.

Tyssen relocated to Melbourne in 2017, and his third solo album Invitations was released shortly after (October 2017). Tyssen then wrote 10 songs in 10 days during his visit to Portland and Seattle in Jan 2018. This fourth album You're Gonna Feel It in the Winter (May 11th) was produced by Julian Schweitzer (Greenthief/Deathbeat).

Hot Milk Sleep (Sep 2018) is Tyssen's fifth album and is a more lo-fi / loop based approach, heavily influenced by Hypnagogic Pop artists like John Maus. Come Home (Jan 2019) was written and recorded in just four days in Brisbane in Dec 2018 and sees Tyssen return to his raw acoustic sound which is more akin to the live shows he's been playing around Melbourne in the couple of years.
