Stephen McCulloch: Singer songwriter
Stephen McCulloch is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist based in Melbourne, Australia. His music draws on folk, country, rock and pop sounds, with intricate acoustic guitar work and a voice that ranges from gentle and tender to soaring and powerful. His songs explore the joy and pain of being human with an honesty that is ultimately uplifting.
McCulloch’s performances on Channel 9’s The Voice in 2015 helped propel his debut album Good Things Take Time to number 15 on the Australian iTunes Singer/songwriter charts and he has performed at major festivals including Woodford Folk Festival, The National Folk Festival and Maldon Folk Festival.
His early exposure to music came through his father’s country record collection, with Charlie Pride, Neil Young, Slim Dusty and Merle Haggard all featuring heavily in the family home in Gippsland in rural Victoria. At age 15 he picked up the guitar and harmonica which both still feature in his music today.
“A rich smooth voice, with an edge that makes you want to hear more!”

" The variation and accompaniment was perfect and always left you curious how the next song would run and where it would take you "
