Josh Pyke set to fire

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL. -

JOSH Pyke is one of Aus­tralia's pre­mier singer/song­writ­ers and with his chill blend of in­die, it’s only fit­ting that he’ll be hit­ting the shores of Air­lie Beach.

Mag­nums Ho­tel is set to host the ex­pe­ri­enced Aus­tralian artist this Sun­day for his lo­cal leg of the But For All These Shrink­ing Hearts re­gional tour.

Known for his abil­ity to weave in­tel­li­gent lyrics with warm melodies and quirky song struc­tures, Pyke is a mod­ern-day sto­ry­teller whose unique and evoca­tive use of both words and mu­sic places him in a league of his own.

His break­through sin­gle was Mid­dle of the Hill, which made it to num­ber 19 on triple j's 2005 Hottest 100 count­down and ap­peared on his de­but re­lease Feed­ing The Wolves.

Pyke fol­lowed up with the 2007 re­lease of his de­but al­bum Mem­o­ries & Dust , which hit the ARIA chart at num­ber 4. The Gold record, hailed a "clas­sic" by The Daily Telegraph and "world-class" by The Age, was ac­claimed by crit­ics and fans alike. It took out three ARIA Awards and was nom­i­nated for a J Award.

His sec­ond al­bum Chim­ney's Afire de­buted at num­ber 3 on the ARIA chart, won an ARIA Award and achieved gold sales. He then fol­lowed this up with the 2011 re­lease of his third al­bum, Only Spar­rows.

July 2014 saw the re­lease of Pyke’s fourth stu­dio al­bum The Be­gin­ning And The End Of Ev­ery­thing. Fea­tur­ing sin­gles Lee­ward Side and Warm in Win­ter, the al­bum de­buted at num­ber 7 on the ARIA al­bums chart.

Show­ing no signs of slow­ing down any time soon, Josh Pyke re­leased his fifth al­bum But For All These Shrink­ing Hearts on July 31, 2015. It de- buted at num­ber 2 on the ARIA chart, mak­ing it his high­est de­but place­ment and fifth top 10 re­lease in a row.

Through­out his ca­reer he has re­ceived four ARIA Awards, with a fur­ther nine nom­i­na­tions, and nine songs in triple j's Hottest 100 count­downs.
