After a long absence from the stage, building alternative-design mud houses, Steve Appel re-emerged in 2018 to showcase a new King Curly EP, “Calling For Fire”: songs imbued with apocalyptic foreboding, inspired by the inflammable nature of the Australian bush and the wider world at large. Appel is a true creative. His songs and his buildings are beautiful and relevant to the times.
Late 2018 saw Steve touring Europe with another Australian singer songwriter, Melanie Horsnell. In Paris he produced a record of that collaboration with the album ‘The World Has A Gentle Soul’. Information at https://www.facebook.com/MelanieHorsnellandSteveAppel/
