ROB SNARSKI 1

After 25 years as the honey-voiced singer of Australian outfit The Blackeyed Susans, critically acclaimed artist Rob Snarski, accompanied by stellar guitarist Shane O’Mara, is set to captivate audiences with a pared back acoustic set featuring an eclectic selection of covers.

Join us in Port Arthur’s Asylum building with a musician who has been hailed as “one of the great romantic singers” and one of Australia’s favourite guitarists for a night that is sure to take away any winter blues.

Rob Snarski has had a brilliant year since the release of his solo, debut album ‘Wounded Bird’. The record has been showered with accolades. Hailed as “one of the great romantic singers” by music journalist Jeff Jenkins who declared ‘Wounded Bird’ the “perfect solo album” in a 4½ star review. Think Ricky Nelson meets Mazzy Star or the Everly Brothers if they’d been raised on a diet of Big Star’s Third.

Since the album’s release, Rob has played to packed houses around the country. The album and their live performances have connected with fans and critics alike. Recently, music fans voted ‘Wounded Bird’ the Australian Album of 2014 in the RRR Off The Record Listeners’ end of year poll and his Melbourne album launch show – with a star band in July – was voted Best Australian Gig Of 2014.

Rob is launching a new album: ‘Low Fidelity (Volume 1)’ is a collection of songs requested by lovers of Rob Snarski’s voice. Everything from Nina Simone to Pulp, Edwyn Collins to Glen Campbell, from classic songs to the more obscure. Recorded in the hills of Tecoma on an iPhone and embellished by guitarist/producer Shane O’Mara. It’s an intimate and raw recording, unpolished and unforgiving.

Join Rob Snarski, accompanied by Shane O’Mara, in a once only musical evening as he sings songs for you at Port Arthur Historic Site as part of this year’s Festival of Voices.
