The popular song "Under the Milky Way" won the "Best Single of the Year" award at the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) awards event in 1989. For his work with The Church, Kilbey then accepted, together with his bandmates, an induction into the ARIA Hall of Fame.
Steve got his first bass guitar at age 16, joined a “cabaret” band at 18, formed a couple of bands “precious little” who morphed into “baby grande” (Peter Koppes was in both these groups too), in 1980 formed the Church and has also released 14 solo music albums since.
"Kilbey's solo recordings are challenging and evocative. . . joyous and dreamy to saturnine and sardonic".
