ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Inspired by the diversity, frailty and vulnerability of human emotion, Tarun Stevenson is one of those rare talents who is driven by the desire to paint a picture of his most inner thoughts through song. Songs that are free from the shackles of trends and the confines of ego.

Following in the footsteps of such greats as Nick Drake and Ben Harper, Stevenson's penchant for subtle melody, diverse rhythm and deep lyrical content expose the soul of his music for all to embrace.

A Breif History:
Originally from Brisbane, Tarun cut his musical teeth as a teenager with hard rock/grunge band Revelation. In 1994 Tarun headed south to Sydney to pursue a solo career with his take on bluesy funk rock. Mining the sounds of influences such as Sly and the family Stone and Jimi Hendrix. Tarun's debut EP-Roon received wide approval amongst indie circles with songs licensed on 2 North American releases.

Roon also brought Tarun to the attention of Grammy nominated Producers Jim Emerich and Johnny Pierce based in Nashville TN, who invited him over to the US to record a 3 song self titled EP in 1999.

Upon return to Australia, Tarun began to experiment with a more acoustic oriented sound and quickly became a regular feature on the emerging roots and nu folk scene.

In 2002 Tarun moved further south to Melbourne where his writing really came into it's own. Exploring themes of life, love, pain and loss, Tarun's style evolved into a mellow and at times soulful acoustic folk blues, which has now become his staple.

In the tradition of modern protagonists such as Ben Harper and Jack Johnson, Tarun's melodies coupled heart felt lyrics and simple but ear catching acoustic guitar draw you into a world of bitter sweet.

TURN IT UP, put it on repeat !
"Psalms of the Broken is an amazingly uplifting, well written cd, that takes you on journeys of love, life & inspiration. The more I listen to it, the more I find reasons to love it. Try turning it off after the first track....IMPOSSIBLE, TURN IT UP, put it on repeat & listen to this soulful, funky, hip & happening cd, it's a winner.

I don't possess a degree in music but I do know what I like
“I don't possess a degree in music but I do know what I like in music and I like Tarun's CD, "Psalms For The Broken". Tarun's unique voice and style makes for an easy listening, encouraging and wholly delightful CD. He clearly sings what he means and means what he sings using his own compositions to great effect. Tarun is a prime example of the awesome, God given talent being exhibited through many artists who call Australia home."

gutsy, passionate, focused, thought provoking
"Love the original sound, gutsy, passionate, focused, thought provoking, refreshingly unlike any other Christian music I've heard so far"

Beautiful and Moving
“I went to the launch of Tarun's CD "Psalms for the broken" and was amazed at the manner in which Tarun was able to connect with his audience and be able to tell meaningful stories through his music and his voice. The lyrics were beautiful; it was a very moving experience that is relived by listening to the CD"

Praying man's Sting.
listen with pleasure to Tarun Stevenson's newly released CD and have it constantly playing in my CD player whilst driving. Tarun’s music is touching and thought provoking and I urge other people to purchase the CD and give support to his true talent. I think Tarun Stevenson is praying man's Sting."

David - UK

This cd has helped me through a difficult time."
"I bought Psalms For The Broken from Tarun's website and found it to be very soothing and therapeutic. Sail Away is immediately catchy, whilst Shades Of Blue is the perfect chillout track. The cd comes with tasteful artwork and if you want to sing away the blues the lyrics are included, great for tracks like Psalm For The Broken which has a gospel feel complete with a hammond organ. This cd has helped me through a difficult time."

Tarun’s music is fresh
We see so many reviews on music these days due to the vast amount there is to be enjoyed, a lot of the reviews seem similar and say the same things…. Tarun however compels you to think differently. His style and sound brings a unique comfort to your ears and mind. It’s feeling, complimented with a soul connecting smoothness that only Tarun’s amazing interpretation of a story, turned song, can portray.
Many musicians come and go, sounds are recorded, played, then put in the “Yesterdays” pile, Tarun’s music is fresh and will always be renewed and his album, “Psalms for the Broken” reflect all this and leave you content that real music is still being made. Thanks for the experiences you share through your song, I look forward to many more.

Unpretentious, sincer and smooth
Listening to Tarun Stevenson you forget about the mundane and muse about what really matters in life. Played it while friends were over and discovered it was also great music to kick back to. Unpretentious, sincer and smooth melodic vocals ride effortlessly with each track.
