“Perry Keyes is a Sydney romantic who can see the battered beauty beneath the gloss”   Sydney Morning Herald

Perry Keyes crafts portraits of city life. Capturing the essence of Sydney’s once working-class suburbs – through the experiences of family and neighbours – the acclaimed musician presents the premiere of his Sunnyholt project.

Sharing tales of Sydney’s western suburbs from the late 60s to the present day – from the perspective of his extended family, who were moved there by the Housing Commission – Keyes utilises a full band, visuals and personal stories to trace the journey of generations disintegrating under the social and economic pressures of life on the city’s fringe.
