Artist's Biography
The Silverbeets are an indie band who formed in 2014 and hail from Hobart, Tasmania (the small island state of Australia at the bottom of the world).

This relative isolation has led to the crafting of an idiosyncratic sound that borrows from luminary rock acts like Pink Floyd, the Byrds, David Bowie, Radiohead, The Pixies, Queen, Fleet Foxes, Nick Cave, Simon & Garfunkel, Can, They Might be Giants, Baxter Dury XTC and Neil Young among a host of others.

The band is the brainchild of Farnz Cordeaux but has some regular members who also create pieces for the group, Nigel Hope (primarily Bass) and Bill O’Brien (primarily Drums) but they utilise many other prominent musicians in the local area such as, Konrad Park, Joe Haley and Dan Sulzberger. Their sound is also heavily influenced by their producer and multiinstrumentalist, Ernie Oppenheimer.

The Silverbeets have released:
• an EP, Purple Stems (Jan 2016)
• cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s We’ve got a Groovy thing goin’ (Nov 2016).
• A full length Album, Stay Tuned (June 2018),
• a polemic single, I’ve got to get Away (on an Hawaiian Holiday) (Jan 2020)
• A Full Length Album Halcyon Days (Nov 2020)
*Now* New Full Length album May 2024 - Mr Brown Goes To The Cabaret

The album is a modern-day psychedelic rock opera, a daring venture that seamlessly blends genres and paints a vivid picture of life through the eyes of the enigmatic Mr. Brown.

"Mr Brown Goes To The Cabaret" is not just an album; it's an evocative experience that challenges the status quo, encourages introspection, and prompts the exploration of life's deeper layers.
