Skyscraper Stan - On Your Corner

Skyscraper Stan - On Your Corner
For years Skyscraper Stan has been a staple of the Australian Americana circuit, whether alone with an acoustic guitar or with his band - electrified. Originally classing himself as a country musician his earlier influences included pre-war blues, the Laurel Canyon songwriters, Nick Cave and Sam Cooke. Since arriving in Australia from New Zealand in 2009, The Drones, Peep Tempel and Paul Kelly among others have been added to the list.

As a touring musician based out of Central Victoria, Stan spends upwards of half the year on the road. His regional tours have taken him to every state and territory in Australia, from Katherine to Hobart. Stan has played across New Zealand and Vietnam, released a live album and written a song for academy award long-listed documentary 25 April. He has shared bills with artists such as Marlon Williams, The Troggs, The Animals, The Church and C W Stoneking and has appeared at major festivals around Australia.

Since 2015, Skyscraper Stan and The Commission Flats have been praised for their high energy live shows and top-shelf banter. Now, three years later, they are back on the road and they’ve turned the heat up.

About this track...

Written in a Darwin hotel room halfway through a gruelling solo tour and recorded at Woodstock studios in Melbourne it is typical of Stan’s work - rich in imagery, honest, heart wrenching and at times a little tongue in cheek. Marlon Williams-esque in tone and instrumentation, Stan's echoey voice drifts across a moody score of percussion, guitar and backing vocals.
