Big Sky, fronted by singer-songwriter Steve Louw, are back with the launch of their fourth album, ‘Trancas Canyon’, at Die Boer in Durbanville on 24 and 25 April. The shows will be recorded and filmed for a future DVD release.
‘Trancas Canyon’ was recorded in a house in a canyon in Malibu, California, over three days. And that’s exactly what it sounds like — great songs played by a bunch of friends having a blast.
The warm, earthy-sounding album was produced by long-time collaborator Kevin “The Caveman” Shirley who has succeeded in placing Louw’s personal songs in the context of fine rock ‘n’ roll.
‘Trancas Canyon’ is an elegant addition to the band’s back catalogue of classic rock songs. At Die Boer they’ll play hits like ‘Waiting for the Dawn’, ‘One Cut With a Knife’ and ‘Mr Green’ in addition to selections from the new album.
Joining Louw on stage will be Willem Moller on guitar, Simon Orange on keyboards, Schalk Joubert on bass and Tim Rankin on drums.iAfrica.com
