Sly Withers Regional(ish) Tour 2023 — Wollongong
Get ready for an unforgettable night of hard-hitting indie punk and emotive bangers as Sly Withers and Bec Stevens hit the road for their 2023 Regional(ish) Tour.
From high-school hopefuls to festival main-stagers, Perth’s Sly Withers are the West Australian embodiment of hard work paying off and dreams coming true. Their emotive, weighted brand of big-swinging alt-rock has seen them play to sold-out audiences across the country, ranging from sweaty rock club headliners of their own to arena support slots with Amy Shark and Tones & I. They’ve amassed millions of streams, frequent national radio airplay, scored the coveted #69 (nice) in the 2021 triple j Hottest 100 with their lighter ballad ‘Clarkson’ and have had both of their last studio albums – 2021’s Gardens and 2022’s Overgrown – debut at number 10 on the ARIA album charts, ahead of pop conglomerates like Harry Styles and Taylor Swift. A band that leaves it all on the stage, with hearts pinned on sleeves and guitars cranked to 11, Sly Withers are a true and undeniable force for good within Australian music.
Australian rock singer-songwriter Bec Stevens creates music that brashly, honestly and rawly explores her life, pain, experiences, struggles and emotions. Her vulnerability makes for incredibly powerful music and after building a fan base through her live performances, her hard work and talent is being deservedly recognised with increasing crossover mainstream success, including Triple J rotation.
Bec Stevens and her band will be showcasing her much anticipated and dearly loved debut album ‘Big Worry’.
