Rob Snarski follows up his stunning 2019 studio album Sparrow & Swan with an unconventional approach to recording and song writing – songs commissioned by fans and friends both here in Australia and overseas.
Song Gifts is a best of collection selected from over 100 songs Snarski wrote and co-wrote during Covid lockdown in Melbourne. Twenty-four tracks [a double album] written as gifts for partners, friends, dogs and children as well as songs created within the stories shared by the keen and willing.
The songs were written around his kitchen table on wintery mornings, imparting a lo-fi immediacy and intimacy – with recordings being sent to his musical accomplices ‘Evil’ Graham Lee [Triffids] or Shane O’Mara [Rebecca’s Empire] – who added an element or two, tweaked and finessed the songs in their home studios.
Snarski plays the songs from Song Gifts, Sparrow & Swan and Wounded Bird with his recording compadres and the exquisite Rosie Westbrook on double-bass.
