About

The charismatic Steve Kilbey returns to Belco Arts for an intimate gig in The Theatre. Supported by Canberra’s own Kim Yang, Steve will perform songs from the classic Church albums, “Starfish” and “Heyday.” The acoustic show will feature stories and anecdotes from this rock legend. Steve Kilbey is an English-Australian singer-songwriter and bass guitarist for the rock band The Church. He is also a music producer, poet, and painter. As of 2020, Kilbey has released 14 solo albums and has collaborated on recordings with musical artists such as Martin Kennedy, Stephen Cummings and Ricky Maymi as a vocalist, musician, writer and/or producer. Ian McFarlane writes that “Kilbey’s solo recordings [are] challenging and evocative. They ran the gamut of sounds and emotions from electronic and avant-garde to acoustic and symphonic, joyous and dreamy to saturnine and sardonic”. Inspired by Joni Mitchel and Bon Iver, Taiwanese-Australian songstress Kim Yang writes music on love, death and mental health issues with evocative lyrics, driving melodies and soaring vocals. Her ethereal blend of sounds balances delicately between vulnerability and power. Entry Cost All tickets $50
