Melbourne, Australia-based singer-songwriter Floyd Thursby has released his new single ‘Everyone Can See the Stars’, available on Spotify, Apple Music and other digital platforms through Ang Fang Industries.
The second release from Floyd’s upcoming album ‘To those in flames’, produced by ARIA award-winning producer Marty Brown (Art of Fighting, Clare Bowditch), comes from a place of peace and contentment. It is, literally, a universal experience to lie on your back and look up at the stars on a clear night. An experience of connection with the earth as it presses into your back, of connection with the millions of people who have the same view when they look up to the sky, and of connection to the millions of stars flying through a space without up or down, without north or south: a space through which our world also flies.

‘Finally, a folk/country record where you can tell one song from another… Thursby writes with just enough ornament to trigger your imagination, never straying into pretension…This album is hard to fault.’ Forte Magazine
‘Floyd Thursby has a fascinating voice… But of course, all that would be insignificant without great songs as vehicles for that voice. Thursby has armfuls of them. There’s not an uninteresting moment on this debut LP…. an endlessly rewarding recording.’ Rhythms magazine
‘An intriguing sketch of brilliant songwriting… the band has delivered a masterpiece…. A Thief’s Journal goes straight to the poolroom.’ Rave Magazine (BRIS)
‘Lyrics from Bob Dylan’s new album? No, from Floyd Thursby’s debut self-titled 5-track CD. Go see him and hear for yourself. A powerful new addition to Australia’s most original singer/songwriters.’ Billy Pinnell
‘Striking voice and strong lyrics.’ John Watson
‘Babylon Gate is one of the best songs, lyrically, that I’ve heard all year.’ Claire Stuchbery, PBS FM
‘Overall, the sound is something like anyone from the Candle Records stable trying to cover Tim Rogers’ solo stuff…the standout track is the impressive Babylon Gate. Thursby whittles his own version of the classic country-style epic of bloodshed and revenge.’ Beat
‘Such a genuine, raw emotion that I can think of a number of millionaire singer-songwriters who would do well to study Floyd Thursby for some tips on writing and performing honestly.’ Listen with Monger on ‘Only Rivers Understand’
