From the streets of Brunswick to the seedy bars of Singapore, Anthony Rea's songs conjure images and places, people and times. After a start in the Melbourne music scene fronting The Lyrebirds, Anthony has since lent guitars and vocals to numerous bands and projects, culminating in the recording of a solo album. For the album, Separation Street, Anthony has enlisted the help of former Spacecake band mates Mark Hendriks (bass and vocals) and Jamie Dickson (drums), recording the album at home over a two-year period. The album is bursting with acoustic and electric guitars, with hand-crafted tones created using a blend of vintage and modern equipment. Vocal harmony also plays a big part with additional backing vocals contributed by Mark and the wonderfully talented Emma O'Brien. The songs on Separation Street range from the country blues of 'Your String' to the 60's swamp rock of 'Different Kind of Blue'; and from acoustic grunge to power pop. Whatever the style, the lyrics are honest and infused with a knowing humour.
