ARIA award-winner Josh Pyke (left) will perform on the Crab Fest stage at 3pm on Sunday.
With five acclaimed top 10 albums, four ARIA Awards and countless sold-out tours to his name, Pyke has established himself as one of Australia’s most respected and beloved artists.
The oldest track on Pyke’s Best Of is Note to Self, a song he wrote in 2004 as a literal reminder to himself to keep pushing and never rest on his laurels.
Fast forward to 2019, and Pyke has well-and-truly taken heed of his own advice.
Evocative, intelligent lyrics are his calling card, and his canny melodies are as accessible as they are intricate.
Pyke has become a master at balancing joy and melancholy, and his reflections on the ebb and flow of time manage to evoke nostalgia without being overly sentimental.
