THE WESTERN SUNTONES
An entertaining blend of country rock and Americana in Perth, Western Australia
The songs of The Western Suntones blend country, blues and roots music, creating a Country/Americana sound. Inspired by artists such as Dwight Yoakam and Steve Earle, their style is reminiscent of classic country rock outfits Creedence, Poco and The Eagles. The group’s creative core of Steve Smith, Jeff Barham and Chris Harwood have brought many years of music industry experience to their decade-long collaboration.
The Western Suntones have featured at the Tamworth Country Music Festival. In 2020 they performed at WA’s premier country music event, the Boyup Brook Country Music Festival, and the 2020 Outback Country Music Show. See all their highlights.
