Timothy James Bowen
Raised on the Coal Coast of NSW, Timothy James Bowen is a songwriter who has travelled the world over, and some would say has lived through more in the last few years than many would expect to in a lifetime.
2018 saw Bowen receive a People’s Choice nomination for Live Voice of the Year at the National Live Music Awards up against the likes of Harry James Angus (Cat Empire) and Amy Shark, where he performed one of his songs, ‘Warmth of You’ (co-written with and released by Brandon Robert Young), at the NLMA Gala event in Brisbane with Australian music icon, Katie Noonan. During the next 18 months, Bowen embarked on U.S., U.K. & Australian tours with his sister, Clare Bowen, playing alongside The Striking Matches (USA) and Imogen Clark, as well as a national tour with Sam Buckingham supported by The Australian Council for the Arts. He received a top 40 placement out of over 3,500 entries in the Vanda & Young songwriting competition 2 years running in 2018/19 for his songs ‘Anchor’ & ‘Sing’ and after becoming a Cancer Council ambassador following his personal battle with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2015, he was awarded Cancer Council NSW High Profile Ambassador of the Year in 2019.
In years past, Bowen has released several EP’s, made multiple appearances at the Grand Ole Opry (USA) and has written songs for several US and Australian TV series’, including ‘Nashville’ (US), ‘Instinct’ (US) and Channel 7’s, ‘Winners & Losers’. Bowen has also written songs for Virgin Mobile Australia and Cancer Council. Bowen has shared the stage and the studio with an incredible league of artists including The Milk Carton Kids, The Striking Matches, Colin Linden, Clare Bowen, Brandon Robert Young, Charles Esten, Katie Noonan, Ben Abraham, Jon Hume and Morgan Evans.
His latest single, ‘The Greatest Thing’, was produced by Grammy nominated artist and producer Kenneth Pattengale of The Milk Carton Kids. It was undertaken during COVID-19 isolation between continents from home studios around the world. It was written as a surprise for his wife, Christina, as part of their wedding speeches when they got married in October of last year. With a debut album on the way for 2020, Bowen is one to watch in the months ahead.
Imogen Clark is an Australian singer-songwriter, hailing from the Blue Mountains of New South Wales. Her music ranges from arena-ready rock anthems to raw confessional indie pop.
Despite the myriad challenges that 2020 brought to the music industry, Imogen had a banner year – she released a critically acclaimed EP, played a sold-out livestream concert series, performed back-to-back sold-out Sydney launch shows in September, dropped a nostalgic Christmas single, and wrapped it all up with an epic First Annual Holiday Hootenanny gig with her musical mates – including Montaigne, Jack Moffitt (The Preatures), Lindsay McDougall (Frenzal Rhomb) and more.
Now the 25-year-old has kicked off 2021 with a bang, unveiling ‘Forget About London’, a brand new single and the first taste of her upcoming new EP. Penned with rising indie-pop singer-songwriter-producer Eilish Gilligan in Melbourne and recorded in LA with producer Mike Bloom (Julian Casablancas, Jenny Lewis) at the helm, the track is a Taylor Swift style breakup banger featuring a roof-raising sax solo that delivers the perfect climactic catharsis.
Cutting her teeth playing in local pubs in the Blue Mountains during her teen years before taking the stage with artists like Shania Twain, Ian Moss and Willie Watson, Imogen has worked relentlessly over the past decade building up her musical chops. She has worked with Mark Lizotte (Diesel), Kasey Chambers and Jim Lauderdale and cites Benmont Tench (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) and Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello and the Attractions) amongst her collaborators.
Released in August of last year, Imogen Clark’s The Making Of Me EP garnered widespread acclaim both in Australia and North America. Praised for its raw honesty by fans and critics, the six-track offering showcased Imogen’s powerful vocal and reflective lyrics.
The Making Of Me features a star-studded line-up with players from some of the world’s greatest rock bands – from Benmont Tench (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) on keyboard, to Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello and the Attractions) on drums. Local artists Alex Lahey, Clare Bowen, Emma Swift, Anita Lester and more can be found across EP singles ‘Found Me’, ‘My Own Worst Enemy’, ‘The Making Of Me’, and ‘Paper Boat’.
2021 is already shaping up to be the biggest year of Imogen’s career to date, with a myriad of live dates announced for the next few months, from capital city headline shows with her band to intimate regional solo gigs and a May residency at Sydney’s Low 302 featuring unique collaborations and reimaginings of her best loved songs
