Unpainted Prospects and Greg Steps – Folk/ Country

‘Unpainted Prospects, fresh from launching their new EP ‘Night and Day’, are happy to announce their next show at Open Studio on Sunday October 1, from 2pm. Along with special guest Greg Steps, it promises to be a gig chock full of fine alt-folk and folk-country tunes! $5 entry

Unpainted Prospects are intimate alt-folk storytellers, weaving keenly observed tales from the personal to the political. Loosely formed in 2015, the act is the latest vehicle for singer/songwriter Matthew Daniel and draws on the classically-, pub- and bedroom-trained talents of other Melbournites Gawain Davey (clarinet), Warren Howden (flute), Andy Pap (double bass) and Alfred Daniel (harmonica and sibling harmonies).

Greg Steps is a folk/ country singer-songwriter whose songs evoke the vast desolate landscape of Australia’s barren interior. While following in the tradition of archetypal singer-songwriters such as Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen, Steps also draws influence from various Australian bands of the 1980’s, such as The Go-Betweens, The Triffids and Paul Kelly & The Coloured Girls. With his distinctive voice, unique songs and unconventional between-song banter, he has proven himself to be a true original.”
