Skyscraper Stan and The Commission Flats

Saturday 26th October 2019

Hailing from Auckland and now based in Melbourne, Skyscraper Stan is turning heads on the indie alt-country music scene.

Skyscraper Stan Woodhouse is a singer songwriter lauded for his observational lyricism – a cocktail of wit and grit delivered in a smooth and versatile baritone. Together with his touring band The Commission Flats, they are celebrated as one of Melbourne’s most dynamic live acts.

With their second studio album, Golden Boy Vol. I and II, hot off the press, Skyscraper Stan brings his swag of stories full of drifters and grifters, sunburnt cul-de-sacs and dirty inner-city intersections.

“One part Nick Cave, two parts Hank Williams.” SUNDAY STAR TIMES
