Desert and a Bicycle
After some downtime in the summer months writing, recording, and hanging with old mates and family, Melbourne adventure muso Rob Sawyer is back on stage for the launch of his new single ‘Desert and a Bicycle.’ An acoustic narration written while cycling across the Nullarbor Desert back in 2008. This will be the first release since his debut album ‘sTUFF’ in 2006.
The busy 24 year old managed to fit in the bike adventure between touring back and fourth around Europe and Australia for the past few years. There’s plenty of inspiration and time to think when you pedal a bike some 4600kms from Melbourne to Perth and Rob’s keen to share some songs and stories from his attractive tour schedule.
Rob Sawyer’s music shows a talent beyond his years. At home on the stage, he plays carefree and effortlessly loving every moment. There is no sign of ‘just going through the motions’ as he illustrates the passion of an eloquent and enthused performer. The songs are eclectic, haphazard and raw and he delivers them armed with a voice that has evolved strong and compelling, with the well-worn fret board of a much-loved acoustic guitar.
Sawyer plays a string of shows for the single launch before taking off over seas for another European summer tour, and returns for the launch of a new album later in the year. Its been a remarkable journey so far, and its exciting to image what adventures the lad has up his sleeve for years to come!
