Tyson has not had the same profile as other chroniclers of the Australian experience like Shane Howard or John Schumann, but the tracks on this new record reveal a master song craftsman with a nuanced lyrical touch and strong melodies.
Although best known for his work with Brisbane folk-rock band Rough Red, Tyson has released two critically acclaimed solo albums prior to this new release, both scoring 4 star reviews in the national music press.
On this new set, his gruff voice and superb guitar work - he plays every note on this album - suit his songwriting style well.
Wrong Strain Right Station shows Tyson at his poignant best, but there is always plenty of grit in the musical delivery here. Nothing is over-polished, but these are songs that are built to last.
Tyson tours the album with his band The Train Rex, with dates from late September to late November.
