Tim Hart ‘A Number Of Us’

I’ve been a fan of Tim Hart’s solo music since I saw him open for Sufjan Stevens last year. It was a surprise choice for an opening act, given that most people only knew Tim Hart as the drummer of Boy And Bear.

Boy And Bear @ The Forum, 18th Of May

It seems like an eternity ago when I saw a bunch of nervous guys play their first ever festival set in a cramped tent at Homebake. Since then Boy And Bear’s rise in Australian music has been nothing short of meteoric, and at no time has this been more clear than last night, when they played the second of two sold out shows at The Forum in Melbourne.

While it’s hard to see Tim devoting much more time to his solo music given how massive Boy And Bear have become, that’s no reason why we can’t enjoy the solo tracks that he has recorded so far

Splendour In The Grass Day One Review

Returning to Splendour In The Grass this year felt like returning to a second home after a prolonged absence.

Everything was just the way I remembered it, from the amazing shops, the delicious food, the art installations, the campsite, the chilled atmosphere, the cool people, The Mango Hut, and of course the music. Just walking around the venue brought back so many great memories from last year.
