Learn the art of song writing from one of Perth’s premier songwriters! Join Timothy Nelson for a specialised song writing workshop for people aged 18-25.
“Welcome to Timothy Nelson’s world. Trips out, half-baked in his half-broken-down van, break up the days of Perth suburban day-dreaming, where fantasies of the unobtainable — love or luxurious overseas trips — slide side-by-side next to strict self-analysis, the expected introspective result of reflective hours.”
– Rolling Stone Australia
Over the past decade, Timothy Nelson has established himself as one of Perth’s premier songwriters. Though his career has twisted and turned, both in style and in subject, from fronting Timothy Nelson & The Infidels and High Horse, earning multiple WAMI’s, to moonlighting in The Kill Devils Hills performing in bands alongside the likes of Liz Stringer and Melody Pool – it is solo, where Nelson’s always been driven to go.
Following the award winning, pop extravaganza of his Infidels’ second album ‘Terror Terror, Hide It Hide It’, Nelson released his solo debut ‘Words Like Young’ in 2016, solidifying his status as one of Australia’s most promising songwriters, with TheMusic.com.au declaring it “a brilliant solo debut.” The album spawned multiple tours across Australia, Japan and the USA.
Throughout his career, Timothy Nelson has supported the likes of Katie Noonan, Birds Of Tokyo, Air Supply, Icehouse, Parquet Courts, Eskimo Joe and Bob Evans to name a few, and has appeared on festivals including Port Fairy Folk Festival, Woodford, Nannup Festival, PIAF, Fairbridge Festival and Groovin The Moo.
With a recent victory lap of sold-out acoustic shows in WA now wrapped up, Nelson has been hard at work writing his next album, giving us a taste of what to expect next with recent single ‘Oh My’: An alt-country power-pop story of failed relationships, that somehow leaves an optimistic aftertaste. For Nelson, it’s a song very close to his heart: “It’s about trying to move beyond a crossroads, and realizing it was the wrong direction to go in,” he said, before quipping: “All that doom and gloom about self-sabotage, it’s a real party starter.”
The second half of 2018 serves as a developmental period whilst Nelson hones his craft in preparation for his sophomore album which is penned for release in 2019.
