Skyscraper Stan - Golden Boy Album Launch Tour
Beloved songwriter "Skyscraper" Stan Woodhouse releases lush new album "Golden Boy vol. I and II" with national full band tour. Revered for his piercing observational lyricism and thrilling live performance Stan has once again teamed up with long time touring band the Commission Flats and engineer/producer Richard Stolz (Paul Kelly, HUSKY) to create a rollercoaster of a record.Following on from 2015's Last Year's Tune, Golden Boy is tender, angry, introspective and political over the course of its 10 tracks. Split into two 5 track volumes the full length LP first tackles themes of privilege, masculinity, crime and ambition before moving into an introspective and autobiographical exploration of lessons learned (or not). Driven by Stan's intricate lyrics and underpinned by the dynamic Commission Flats, Golden Boy flies between such disparate influences as Stax era soul, Melbourne post-punk, Tin-pan Alley songwriters and rambling folk tales - a menagerie of mismatched musical muses coalescing into something unique, melodic and unexpected. Over July and August Skyscraper Stan and the Commission Flats are touring Golden Boy through VIC, NSW, SA, QLD, WA and NZ with fifteen opportunities around Australasia to see and songwriter and band at the top of their game.
