The Steve Wernick Band

I am delighted to welcome to the Skyfire roster Wolverhampton born, Australia Based singer songwriter Steve Wernick.

Steve who fronted the Australian band The Cleanskins achieved a lot of respect in both festival and TV appearances playing countless scores of events in the Sydney area and beyond.

Sadly The Cleanskins disbanded after the tragic death of their bass player Shan Chard.

Steve continues to work with lead guitarist and co-writer Rolfe Knudsen ( A pivotal part of UK post-punk band The Volcano’s who’s album “Into The Psyche” is still enjoyed as a cult classic) and in 2016 released a 6 track EP called “Talent To Burn” which led to a recording deal with MGM Australia, culminating in the brand new album from The Steve Wernick Band “Love Is A Gamble”. Released in Australia a couple of months ago we are pleased to announce that the album is now scheduled for a UK launch this August.

Steve was diagnosed with Cancer in 2009 to which the doctor told him “It was going to kill him, and kill him quickly”. This reignited Steve’s passion and love for music and as you can tell from the fact of the new album Steve is alive and kicking.

Currently in the process of finalising some dates in Australia the band are looking forward to doing a UK tour in early 2018.

Aussie Blues at its best.
