2017 release for new album

I've recently returned to Brisbane from six weeks in the USA where I spent time writing material for a new SNO album. At the end of the trip I had two inspiring days recording in Systems Two (Brooklyn) with an ensemble that included Desmond White (bass), Kush Abadey (drums), Kavita Shah (voice), Jonathan Goldberger (guitar), Kathryn Andrews (harp), Sam Sadigursky (bass clarinet), Jodie Rottle (flute), Leah Asher (viola), Meaghan Burke (cello). The session was engineered by the marvellous Mike Marciano, who runs the studio. 

Much editing and mixing is still in the works as the music is shaped, but I'm very excited about the prospect of an early 2017 release of the second SNO record.

New album in progress..

I'm currently in the US working on material for a new album. The ensemble will be a SNO 2.0 of sorts, made up of strings, winds, harp, voice, guitar and rhythm section. I'm delighted to be collaborating with some of my dear friends from SNO 1, including Kathryn Andrews, Kavita Shah, and John Goldberger

I'll post lots of photos from the sessions on https://www.instagram.com/steve_newcomb_ so please follow along if that's your thing! We'll be recording in the highly praised Systems Two in Brooklyn mid-September. 

SNO 1 is available here
