Apollo SteamTrain

Rock band from New Zealand.

 

 

The band is the result of ‘The Apollo SteamTrain Project’, a musical journey that began in 2016 by Singer/Songwriter Brendan McCarthy.

 

When the project began, it was decided early on to record a bunch of tracks from an extensive back catalogue of songs written by Brendan over the last 20 years and then assemble the best musicians available to deliver the music in the live format.

 

On the strength of the first few recordings the band signed a publishing deal with Songbroker. When one of the tracks "The Electric Sun" was used in the longest-running NZ Television show "Shortland Street", the band decided to release it and gained some good momentum.


 In may of 2017 the band Recorded 2 tracks at Neil Finns' Roundhead studios in Auckland New Zealand with international producer Greg Haver who then had them mixed in the UK by ex pat Clint Murphy.
The new single "Brain Bell Jangler" is set for release in Feb 2018.

 

With considerable collective experience, the members of Apollo SteamTrain Brendan McCarthy, Les Robinson and Ian Clark all know the ups and downs of working in an industry that can sometimes be rather daunting, but are prepared to go the distance and take the music as far as it will go.
