Australian singer/songwriter, Tim Wheatley has released the first single from his sophomore album ‘Pillar to Post’ available on August 25 through Sony Music Australia.
Wheatley’s new single ‘Her Wicked Ways’ was recorded in Los Angeles with Justin Stanley (Eric Clapton, Beck, Leonard Cohen), and gives us taste of what is to come from the alt/folk troubadour in 2017. ‘Its certainly an album born of harder times’, say’s Wheatley, ‘and the first cohesive piece of work since moving to Los Angeles’.
Since the release of his critically acclaimed debut album ‘Cast of Yesterday’ in 2015 which reached No.9 on the ARIA Country Album chart, Wheatley has been performing all over Australia, North America and the UK, including a residency at LA’s famed Hotel Café and was a standout at 2017’s SXSW in Austin, Texas.
“Full of nostalgia, melodies and magic that shows Wheatley has finally arrived”
“Melbourne’s Tim Wheatley now knows how to be heard over the noise”
“Armed with a classical acoustic technique and a tastefully smoky, earnest voice, Wheatley weaves a tapestry with his expansive country-folk”
“Armed with plenty of poetry and a voice to match, Tim Wheatley is ready to carve out his own place
“his melodies will inspire you of days gone by and the riffs will have you yearning for better times”
