“I picked through the stories and then went back and filled in the gaps. I love how each story is so captivating and humorous.”
Review by Israel Best, Melbourne school teacher
Songbook & Six String with Paul Ubana Jones, Theatre Royal, Nelson, May 1 2015
“There is something very satisfying about watching two musicians on stage who so obviously enjoy each other’s company and share the stage with an absence of ego and great musical generosity.”
Gig review – Melbourne
“Bryce Wastney treated Ruby’s Lounge to an outstanding performance last night for Ruby’s Loungapalooza Variety showcase. His on stage presence and interaction with the crowd was a treat. His was the only act of the night to draw people to the dance floor, his charismatic ways had the place buzzing. The Humble musician chatted to the crowd between songs, thanked all the acts before him, and even entertained us during his sound check! Bryce is a one in a million performer & we would love to have him back again and again.”
Lachlan Case, Ruby’s Lounge www.rubyslounge.com.au Melbourne Australia.
“The crown jewel of the album though is the title track “A perfect day for travel”. On this slow masterpiece Bryce gives you a performance that makes you shiver – in a good way. It’s the kind of song you find yourself humming to when you wake up in the morning.”

Live gig review – Sydney
“Bryce Wastney & his smooth acoustic style rocked the room. The Connections Lounge was packed! An engaging storyteller, Bryce mixed humour with heart-felt examples from his own life’s journey. He left each performance with the crowd wanting more! Can’t wait to have him back!“
