This record is dedicated to my mother Joyce Bennett and a hope there will be a cure for alzheimers disease soon!

Foghorn Records Press Release (Aug. 20, 2020):
Steve Kilbey has created a fine new album for 2020. His first solo release for an astoundingly creative year reveals a dazzling array of songs brimming with ideas, personality & effervescence. The collection is at once whimsical yet personal, and in a masterful sleight of hand Kilbey's Eleven Women are not quite as one might expect.
The album leads us through a shimmering whirlwind of encounters. After the disarming love song Baby Poe we are plunged headlong into the dark world of Doris McAllister, an evil witch who takes us 'by the bells'. We are regaled by the Celtic wistfulness of Josephine as she forbearingly awaits her 'wine & roses' while Birdeen, a greedy lorikeet with a sweet tooth, beguiles us with infectious bounce & colour.
Eleven Women is full of melodic invention & lyrical surprises. Singling out tracks for special mention is frankly impossible since this album consists entirely of highlights. Amongst these bijous however the timelessly beautiful Think of You shines brightly. This song has the unmistakeable stamp of eternity & evokes a sense of having existed since music began.
From the album's opening salvo it is clear we are in the most capable of hands. Steve Kilbey is a veteran song writer at the very height of his creative powers.
