Rob Snarski is the velvet-voiced troubadour and singer with our national treasures The Blackeyed Susans. Originally meant to be a “holiday band” for one of this country’s greatest exports, The Triffids, The Blackeyed Susans became a “real band” in 1989 and boast multiple ARIA nominations, tours with Johnny Cash, Leonard Cohen and Wilco.
Throughout the Victorian lockdowns, Snarski had been relatively busy writing songs as gifts for fans and friends. These Song Gifts has just been released as a follow up to 2019’s “Sparrow & Swan”.
Expect golden songs, haunting and elusive - from Rob’s acclaimed solo release “Wounded Bird”, mixed with shimmering new tunes, a chapter or two from his book, several covers from “Low Fidelity”, and perhaps a song from Chad’s Tree, The Triffids, The Go-Betweens… or even Paul Kelly.
“Smooth and sultry enough to coax life and love back into the most damaged of souls” (Steve Bell / The Music)
