JOSH PYKE: Live at The Victoria Bathurst!

Sat 23 March at 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Multi-ARIA Award winner Josh Pyke has cultivated a strong community of supporters around
Australia and beyond.

Since breaking out to widespread success with the release of debut album MEMORIES & DUST in 2007, multi-ARIA Award winner Josh Pyke has cultivated a strong community of supporters around Australia and beyond.

Renowned for his multi-layered melodies and lyrics that are both deeply personal and highly relatable – a testament to his authentic and deep-set connection to the craft of music and its uniting appeal, each record Pyke has released in the years since have brought him closer to his fans, while his profile has elevated to being one of the most beloved and respected Australian songwriters of the last decade.

With six acclaimed albums under his belt and after the success of 2020’s aria nominated Rome album, Pyke latest album To Find Happiness – featuring the singles ‘The Hummingbird’ (Ft. Gordi), ‘Your Heart Won’t Always Weigh a Tone’ and ‘Circle of Light’ shows creativity has long extended well beyond.

Pyke’s creativity has long extended well beyond that discipline. He has ventured into the world of children’s books, releasing the award-nominated Lights Out, Leonard as well as the much loved Chatterpuss series. His upcoming book Family Tree has been announced as the ALIA National Simultaneous Storytime book for 2022, where it will be read by over a million children at the same time.

His philanthropic work has included the development of the Josh Pyke Partnership, as well as his Busking For Change initiative and continued work as a lifetime ambassador for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.
