Allow us to introduce you to Tate Sheridan, an award-winning sing-songwriter from Sydney taking the world by storm. His latest EP Angel Man was released in 2018 and is a piece of acoustic genius, flaunting raw lyricism, emotive instrumentation, and an arresting voice that immediately demands your attention.
This clever piece of storytelling comes as no surprise, as Tate has won numerous awards such as 2014 ACT Critics Circle Artist of the year for his contribution to jazz and pop music and Friends of the ANU School of Music’s Bernhard Neumann Memorial Prize just to name a few. He even caught the attention of big musical names such as Thirsty Merc’s Rai Thistlethwayte and INXS’ Andrew Farris as well as opening for Elton John’s stadium tour of Australia/NZ, making him the first support act in history to play Elton John’s piano in his 50 years of touring.
Angel Man, the arresting new EP from Sydney musician Tate Sheridan is raw, insightful and delightfully engaging. We strongly recommend you keep an eye on this name.
Driven by masterful jazz piano, the EP is a perfect blend of playful, upbeat songs—such as Better Run This Time—and slower, more heartfelt songs like the Angel Man and Starting Again. Sheridan’s instrumental expertise and song-writing abilities are undeniable.
With each of the EP’s five tracks, Sheridan weaves a captivating story. By the time you reach its conclusion, you’ll be left completely spell-bound.
Angel Man is the latest in a string of consistently great releases from Sheridan, and judging by the quality of everything we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more quality tunes. Here’s hoping we won’t have to wait long to hear what he delivers next.
