Stewart D'Arrietta - Belly Of A Drunken Piano

MUSIC / AUS

A World Premiere: the music of Tom Waits, Randy Newman, Joe Cocker, Tim Buckley, Ian Dury and more

***** A dynamic singer with a gravelly voice - imagine Tom Waits with overtones of Joe Cocker and a wicked line in jokes and stories. D’Arrietta is the full package both as musician and entertainer.”

Daily Telegraph

“Certainly worth your time… particularly for the opportunity to experience the remarkable Stewart D’Arrietta in live performance.”

Australian Arts Review

“D’Arrietta has all the tools… a deep whiskey soaked voice, great piano chops, and a sense of charisma.”

The Plus Ones, Sydney

**** “Above all, very, very fun.”

Broadway Baby


After knock-out, sold-out, shout-out success with My Leonard Cohen here and for two years on the Edinburgh Fringe - and decades of international success with Lennon Through A Glass Onion - Stewart D’Arrietta and his band bring a brand new show and gutsy interpretations of some of music’s greatest songwriters.

D'Arrietta's stage-shows and acclaimed interpretations are stamped indelibly with a strong creative vision, wry humour and unique grit, all honed to a razor's edge by a lifetime of performance and writing: he can whip the whiskers from the face of any song for a spruce and smooooth night-out on the town.

In Belly of a Drunken Piano he turns his hand to some ‘down and dirty’ material, while also touching on beautiful ballads from some of the most enigmatic, intelligent and influential songwriters of our time. Tim Buckley’s Move With Me, Randy Newman’s Leave Your Hat On and Tom Waits’ Get Down In The Hole are all part of the mix. Fall into the underbelly of Charles Bukowski’s poetry, backed by original music from Stewart himself. Plus much more!

Expect D’Arrietta’s dynamic delivery, bursting with emotion, effortless pianism and a whole lot of style. Tom, Tim, Randy, Joe and Ian ain't comin' to town. Stewart's on his way.
