Sylvie seamlessly taps into the timeless musical essence of hidden or lost melodies delicately encapsulated as legacies. In 1975, John Schwab and his band “Mad Anthony” sat in a barn in Southern
California and recorded their songs. It was a narrative that was common during this period – the band was close to a record deal but it never came, and the tapes were stored in a box in a closet. Decades later, in a small town in Ohio, his son Ben Schwab came across them. The recordings would imprint a sound and feeling that he would end up chasing. They were timeless, effortless, and soulful. A harmonic birthright. Sylvie is the full return to the musical lineage and spirit that lived in all those lost yet beloved cassettes and reels. True to Mad Anthonyʼs form, Ben and his friends also sat around in a garage in LA to make these recordings.
Sharing the tour, melodic piano pop virtuoso originally from Australia’s south coast, Tex Crick will be bringing his idiosyncratic songwriting style loosely rooted in nostalgic pop and soft rock. Known for his collaborations with music luminaries like Connan Mockasin and Weyes Blood, Tex’s music is a fusion of nostalgia and wry intelligence. He recently unveiled his latest gem, ‘Sweet Dreamin’, on Mac’s Record Label.
