About Sydney Rococo: Steve Kilbey & The George Ellis Orchestra

The prolific Steve Kilbey, frontman of alt-rock icons The Church, performs his new solo album in full for one night only, accompanied by the George Ellis String Orchestra and his world-class recording band.

Sydney Rococo is Kilbey’s homage to his adopted home, the Harbour City; a collection of “songs for a banker or for a tramp, songs about seediness and the sea...the summers, the dreams, the vegetation – always pushing skywards... filtered through lush orchestras and sighing voices.”

With a 45-year musical oeuvre spanning 30 albums with The Church and 21 solo records, Kilbey is a poet laureate of the Australian underground. Sydney Rococo pairs his gift for evocative, wistful storytelling with finely crafted composition, a team of exceptional musicians, and lyrics that speak to anyone in a co-dependent, love-hate relationship with the city.
