Biography

Tinpan Orange have spent the past year making themselves at home in the live music venues and jazz clubs of Melbourne, sharing the stage with artists such as Renee Geyer, The Whitlams, Clare Bowditch, Deborah Conway, Pete Murray and Tim Rogers.

Having enjoyed the success of their first independent album, Aroona Palace, Tinpan Orange are almost bursting at seams to lay down the next one, beginning recording in late October 2006. The evolution of the live Tinpan sound will be captured at its richest point yet.

Expect to hear mellifluous and soulful songs, telling stories, some true and some false, while blurring the lines in between. Lyrics, rhythms and melodies that are as obvious and ambiguous and a straight line drawn on a Cheshire Cats grin.

Tinpan Orange consists of two acoustic guitars, a violin, a mandolin and a stirring rhythm section, all wrapped around a sultry female voice:

“If my voice had a baby, it would be hers.” -Renee Geyer.

Someone once said that there exists ten perfect songs. Some are known and others are yet to be heard. It seems that as soon as a perfect song is revealed a new one is heard that makes you question… And so… we are perched on the cusp of the eternal perfect song that is always in tomorrow, basking in the imperfections of what is now.
