BLACK RAINBOW is one of the most highly anticipated releases from Steve Balbi in the independent music scene for 2013.
Steve has a reputation not only as a beautiful songwriter and an unparalleled front man but also for his
loyal following and grounded real life songs that have left audiences in Australia and Ireland gasping for
breath. He has transcended generations in acts like The Electric Hippies, Noiseworks, Universe, Move
Trees, Mi-Sex and recently in theatre productions Ziggy and Whole Lotta Love. Steve is in touch with the
raw magic that makes people love and need live music.
BLACK RAINBOW is Balbi at his most engaging, it is contenting, it’s memorable, it’s pensive and it’s
magical. The lyrics connect in a special way with the listener. They provoke emotion from the listener,
they overwhelm the listener and they engulf them entirely and at times blast you into the heavens.
Steve will be backed by some of Australia’s most reputable musicians;
Jak Housden guitar (The Whitlams), Mick Skelton drums (Baby Animals), Ian Tilley bass (Boom Crash
Opera), Paul Najar on keys and Luke Cuerden guitar.
If you have seen Steve Balbi live you will agree, that this is a music experience you will not want to miss
and BLACK RAINBOW is an album for life.
“I've started to realise that waiting is an art, that waiting achieves things. Waiting can be
very, very powerful. Time is a valuable thing. If you can wait two years, you can sometimes
achieve something that you could not achieve today, however hard you worked, however
much money you threw up in the air, however many times you banged your head against the
wall. This is now my time. BLACK RAINBOW”
