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.
Tyssen has recently been working hard on more new material for an upcoming sophomore album release for later in 2016. He again set up all of his gear in his home studio and tracked the whole thing himself. Collaborating with singer Jess Lean from The Brains Trust, Tyssen has added even more layers and new elements to a constantly evolving sound.
Steve Tyssen is currently playing solo acoustic shows as a lead up to his new album release.
