BOB EVANS' FULL CIRCLE ALBUM OUT NOW!!!!!

IT'S RELEASE DAY TODAY!!!!!

Congrats to Bob Evans on a frankly stunning album of his very best work. This album has really hit us in the feels... If you haven't yet, you should hear it immediately!! Get your copy of the album here

The shows he's embarking on from the 19th are going to be soooo great too... He'll be playing most of the songs from the album with the very talented Clio Renner and Esther Henderson, plus there is a SONG RAFFLE where you get to pick a song for him to sing!! It'll be amazing. Get your ticket for the tour here

*As I’ve been saying a lot lately in various interviews, I approached the curation of this album as not so much a “best of” or “greatest hits” but more like an introduction to Bob Evans.  I wanted this collection to both celebrate and initiate.  This meant that whilst the more well known songs like “Don’t You Think It’s Time?” obviously have a place on the album, there are also deeper cuts from several albums included that most people would not have heard of.  My hope is that by approaching it this way the album gives a broader and more interesting account of the last five albums and fifteen years of my Bob Evans recorded output.  I also hope that this album may act as an introduction to my work for people who have never heard of me or don’t own any of my studio albums.  Most of all though, like any album I have put out, I hope that it finds a place in people’s days and hearts and stereos and brings a little happiness along with it.

It is also just 2 WEEKS before my tour kicks off, starting in Brisbane on October 19th and continuing on to Sydney, Adelaide, Perth and Melbourne.  Thank you to everyone who has already bought a ticket.  If you haven’t yet you can do so here.  

This tour is unlike any I have done before.  I will be presenting most of the songs from “Full Circle” in special 3 piece mode, accompanied by Clio Renner on piano and Esther Henderson on violin.  We had our first rehearsal last night and from the very first song we played together it sounded SO GOOD!  I really think this is going to be pretty special.  Also, I will be conducting a song raffle, whereby everyone will take a raffle ticket upon entry and if your number is called you may request any song of mine that you like and I will attempt to play it.  This has meant going through my back catalogue and trying to remember a lot of songs stretching way back to the late 90’s.  My first album, “Suburban Kid” was released in 2003 but contains songs that I wrote many years earlier.  The oldest song from that album is a tune called “Boy” which I reckon I wrote in about ’98 or ’99, so barely out of my teens.  Above is a clip I made in my garage rehearsing it up on the off chance someone requests it in the raffle!

Thank you to all of you for supporting me over the years, for buying my albums and coming to watch me play.  Thank you to everyone who has pre ordered “Full Circle” and bought tickets to the upcoming tour.  I appreciate it so much and I’m feeling really excited about these upcoming shows.

CHEERS!   XXXBOBXXX*

KAV TEMPERLEY'S ALL YOUR DEVOTION ALBUM RELEASED TODAY!!!

It's release day today!!!

Kav Temperley's debut album All Your Devotion is finally out there. Happy release day Kav!

"All your Devotion is a love story about finding your twin soul. The story plays in reverse, it's like when you go to see a movie and it starts with the present day where everyone is happy but then it goes back in time and tells you the back story of the journey of how they got there.

Side one is about finding your true love, your twin soul, and side two tells the tale of having to put yourself back together after the dark times. I hope you enjoy this true tale." - Kav x

ESKIMO JOE'S NEWEST REISSUE RELEASE, INSHALLA, AVAILABLE NOW!

YAY!! Presenting the next in Eskimo Joe's must-have reissue release series.. Their wonderful 4th studio album, Inshalla x

*Booyah! Inshalla is rrrre-released today!

Our 4th album, Inshalla, felt like record #2 in a lot of ways, as we had a lot of expectation placed on us after Black Fingernails Red Wine. But the writing and recording process was so much fun, the pressure never really eventuated.

Inshalla contains one of my favourite Eskies songs ever, Foreign Land. There's a demo recording of this song on the Anniversary Edition CD, as well as a stack of other unreleased recordings as well. Eskies trainspotters and/or vinyl aficionados will also love the special edition vinyl, with the original album in a spanking orange vinyl disc to spin on yer decks. *

Grab your copy here before they sell out. Tops. -stu image description image description

BOB EVANS - FULL CIRCLE ALBUM AND TOUR ANNOUNCED!!!!

HOW ABOUT SOME REALLY BIG NEWS!!! Five studio albums down the track and the distinguished career of Bob Evans receives the Best Of treatment via new album, Full Circle, to be released on October 5. Full Circle features a brand new single, ‘Drowning’ and is accompanied by a video filmed in studio by Arlo Cook during the recording of the track!

Not only that... but he will be embarking on a tour to celebrate!

*It is with great pleasure and feverish excitement that I can announce to you, my staunchest supporters, that your old pal Bob Evans is releasing a best of compilation album called “Full Circle” and hitting the road in October and November to celebrate!   “Full Circle” contains 14 songs from across my 5 studio albums, a mix of popular singles and personal favourites plus 1 BRAND NEW SONG called “Drowning” that I recorded with my touring band in May.  It’s the quintessential Bob Evans collection and it is available for you to pre order from August 7th, before hitting shelves on October 5th.  When you pre order “Full Circle” via a digital retailer like iTunes, you will receive the new song, “Drowning”, immediately!

Of course I am hitting the road to celebrate with shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.  The “Full Circle Tour” will be different to anything I have ever done before.  Firstly, I will be presenting almost all the songs from the record in a special trio format, backed by piano and violin.  I will also be conducting a song raffle of sorts, where everyone who comes to the show will be given a raffle ticket and if your number is called you get to request any song I’ve ever released under the Bob Evans name and I will play it right there and then!  By my count that’s more than 80 songs that I will try and re-learn in preparation for the tour.  It’s quite possibly the stupidest and most ambitious concept for a tour I’ve ever attempted! * I hope you’re able to join me on this very special run of shows celebrating the last 15 years of Bob Evans. 

CHEERS!   XXXBOBXXX
