Steve Hensby Band - Chase The Sun
The Steve Hensby Band are heavy on the horns and very danceable! Their self-titled debut was well received and featured folk music from different parts of the world mused together to make a gypsy/circus style album.
For the follow up ‘Chase the Sun’ they drew from Soul/Groove/Funk music and added a five piece horn section. In-between releasing albums they put on ‘Steve Hensby’s Circus’ to sold out crowds at FRINGE WORLD Perth in January 2018, this featured aerial, contortion, clown, burlesque and fire routines performed to songs from the first album. In dec/jan 2019 they went on their first UK in duo form and Steve’s humour, talent and energy combined with Elysia beautiful vocals never failing to win over audiences.
Both albums have had heavy airplay including Triple J and Double J as well as local radio stations all over Australia. Their song ‘Naf Naf’ has been nominated for the 2019 WAM Song of Year.
In 2019 Steve Hensby Band played to big crowds at Fairbridge Folk Festival, Nannup Music Festival and Joondalup Festival. They toured Brisbane and Melbourne in April and are heading back in September/October before returning to play shows in UK, Germany, Belgian and Holland in Jan 2020.
