Biography

This story has two parts.

It begins 4 years ago in a vibrant music scene in Melbourne Australia. Renowned Australian producer Tim Whitten (The Panics, Art of Fighting) heard a copy of Tamas Wells’ home recorded songs and invited he and his friends to Megaphon studios in Sydney to record a debut album. This collection of songs made up the album A Mark on the Pane which was released on Australia’s Popboomerang Records and peaked at 16 on the Australian AIR charts. The band went on to do five Australian national tours through 2004.

“one of the year’s (2004) most beautiful records” (Inpress, Melbourne)

The second part begins after recording songs for a second album when Tamas Wells left Australia to live in the city of Yangon in Burma in South East Asia. Despite this move the 2006 album A Plea en Vendredi with its Beat Magazine Single of the Week Valder Fields received glowing reviews and airplay in Australia. As well as an Australian release, Tamas Wells also signed a deal with renowned Tokyo based label Inpartmaint Records in Japan and also with Beijing based label Pocket Records (Dirty Three, Maximilian Hecker). The album gained significant airplay and went on to sell several thousand copies remarkably reaching number 16 in Japan’s HMV Shibuya international chart. The release culminated in a sell out tour of four Japanese cities in August 2007.

The new Tamas Wells album Two Years in April is available now. He still resides in Yangon, Burma

    果然 在国内比在任何地方都火 国人是真心在这种小清新啊 一直想听的live也 他要能够夏天来厦门就好了 是在不成秋冬去武汉也行啊 @AdamRandalYoung Because those Chinese artists were in the same record company with Tamas' albums in China.

    Oops...! It's just strange to see so many Chinese here though. 他为什么在中国这么红,却听众那么少?
