SKYSCRAPER STAN 
Songs: Those Were Days
Location: Nicholson Street Underpass, Ballarat East

Skyscraper Stan is a songwriter and bandleader best regarded for his lyricism. His first album “Last Year’s Tune” gave Australia a taste of his image-rich poetry with crowd favorites like “I Fell Over” and “Woody Guthrie”. His follow-up album, Golden Boy Volumes I and II further cemented Stan’s reputation as a unique songwriter on the Australian scene.

A veteran of the touring circuit; prior to the apocalypse he would perform upwards of 100 shows a year, both solo and with his band the Commission Flats.

He has performed at festivals and venues in every state and territory of Australia and, as an ex-pat kiwi, enjoys a strong following on the other side of the Tasman.

He’s been lucky enough to share the stage with such alumni as the Animals, the Troggs, Marlon Williams, James Reyne, Ian Moss, and many more.

As a Ballarat local, he’s proud to be taking part in Be_Hear/Now 2021.
