Dave Steel is a singer / songwriter, multi instrumentalist and producer of twenty years experience. Some people may be familiar with his five previous solo albums, some with his work as an accompanyist with the likes of Archie Roach, Ruby Hunter, Rose Bygrave , Marcia Howard, and Tiffany Eckhardt, amongst many others. He is also familiar as the original guitarist with Weddings Parties Anything. Dave's latest album is called "Home is a Hard Thing to Find", a stripped down acoustic opus with a strong blues flavour.It contains eleven new songs including the moving Weary Blues, and Postcard From Brooklyn, a song written during a visit to NYC with Archie Roach in October 2001....with strong performances from Kerryn Tolhurst, Tiffany Eckhardt, Sandy Brady, Rose Bygrave , Marcia Howard and Glen Romanis, the CD also features a startling cover of Lowell George's Sailin' Shoes.

"Dave is quietly establishing himself as a consistently good performer and writer of songs in a folk/country/blues style and his brand new album is proving just that. Living on the Victorian south-west coast with his wife Tiffany, they now have a lovely baby. The CD features smooth vocal backing from Rose Bygraves, Marcia Howar and Tiffany Eckhardt, as well as musicians Sandy Brady, Kerryn Tollhurst, with Dave shining on various guitars, mandolin, dobro and vocals of course. Highlights for me: the lovely instrumental Gerang Gerang, Sailing Shoes (the only non-original) and Have a Round for Me. The CD just received a prestigious four star review in the Melbourne The Age in June." Review by Dieter Bajzek.
