Continuing my series of opening for my favourite Aussie bands over the past few years. This time around with two of this country’s finest in QLD’s brilliant Halfway (launching their new album ‘On the ghostline’) and the indie all-star cast that is The Aerial Maps, led by the poetic genius of Adam Gibson. Saturday, 17th September – Tix on sale now.
Still on a high from the incredible Vic on the Park show. A good old, loud, late night pub rock gig (I’ve bloody missed this!). My band was on fire. Massive shout out to Casey Atkins for absoloutely destroying it on his first ever gig with us, Peta Caswell , Pan-Pacific Grand Prix & you good souls who joined us.
Here’s ‘She vs Him’, our big set closer from the Vic show. A true privilege to share the stage with these gents.
Dave Keys – Bass
Brian Crouch – Keyboards
Russell Crawford – Drums & Vocals

We’re gonna keep this gig roll on while we can. Back with the full band at The Vic on the Park Marrickville for a FREE show on Friday, 6th May with our friends Pan Pacific Grand Prix. The last time I played The Vic was for Ade line’s final show back in 2004! So it’s going to be a fab return to this great pub.
So thrilled to announce that I have been invited by one of my Oz rock idols, the mighty Icecream Hands, to open for them at their new album launch on Sunday, Feb 27 at the Lansdowne Hotel . This gig is extra special as we finally get to also launch the #backtothemiddle EP at an actual live show! I can’t wait to play these new songs with my legend bandmates and see ICH in full flight again. This will be a huge show. Tix on sale now!

Bryan Estepa’s new six-song EP is a paean to hope and recovery: a sprightly affair that wouldn’t be out of place in the company of records by Matthew Sweet, mid-career Elvis Costello, and The Wondermints.

Today is the release day of my new record – ‘Back to the Middle’. Produced by Josh Pyke and featuring a cast of some of the most talented musician friends I know. Recorded during the brief relief moments allowed to us in Sydney over the past 18 months of this pandemic.
The thrill, nerves and excitement has never dimmed over the years when sharing such a big reflection of who I am and what I do best. Pure Joy for me. I know it has been a difficult and trying time for us all lately but I have found that focusing as much energy as I can onto an outlet I love has become my saving grace. Making music, working on my fitness and spending quality time with my children were it for me. I hope that you too have found your escape in some form.
So please join me in celebrating these six new songs. Follow the link below or click on the EP cover to listen to it on your preferred platform. Let’s help this little record travel by any means that you can.
Stay safe and sane guys.
LISTEN TO #BACKTOTHEMIDDLE –
I remember being a teen in the 90’s and excitedly going into my local music store like Galleons Music Fairfield & Red Eye Records to preorder new CD albums from my faves like You Am I, Regurgitator, Diesel, Pearl Jam, Soungarden & Oasis. Always hoping I’d nab a bonus disc, tote bag or a t-shirt. Good times.
Well, times have changed a bit since then. Now we can PRESAVE upcoming music from your streaming platform of choice. If I’m to be honest, it’s not as exciting as waiting on an actual physical product but it’s the new world order and I’m right in the thick of it! I have a new EP called ‘Back to the Middle’ (Produced by Josh Pyke) coming out on Sep 24 and I can’t wait to get it out to your ears. I’d love for you to help me out by Presaving it and make these bunch of songs travel far and wide! Couple of clicks on the link below or the image friends. Thank you all!
– NEW GIG ALERT –
The band & I are returning to one of Sydney’s great bars – The Gasoline Pony for a COVID safe show on Sat, April 10. Also on the bill is fantastic local singer-songwriter Adam Blacksmith, who also happens to be one of my oldest school mates. A beautiful full circle for us.
