Off the back of the LA album release for his Top 10 ARIA album, Cast of Yesterday, alt folk rock musician, Tim Wheatley is excited to be returning to Australia to promote his second single, The Heathen alongside a run of shows up the east coast kicking off at The Batch Brewery in Marrickville on Nov 25 and moving up to Gosford, Penrith, Newcastle, Deewhy and finishing at The Basement in Sydney on Dec 5.

The Heathen was recorded with Paul McKercher at Hot House in Melbourne and mixed with Niko Bolas at Capitol Records, Hollywood.  “While Niko and I were mixing it, we thought it could use just a little something else, and so Niko suggested we take it to legendary guitarist Waddy Wachtel who has played with Keith Richards, Tom Waits, John Mayer, Jackson Browne, Stevie Nicks just to name a few.  Waddy just played along and gave the song a dynamic that builds and builds,” enthuses Tim.  “Having him play on my album was a surreal experience.  Waddy would ask for my input, and I would just sit there… mute!”

The video for The Heathen was shot in LA by Peter A. Holland and directed by Martin Copping.  It stars Helena Vestergaard and Ryan Porter who play Tim’s unholy companions as they trawl the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles.  “We walked around Hollywood attempting to recreate a similar haphazard vibe reminiscent of the song,” explains Tim.

After receiving such a welcoming response when playing to packed-out venues around Australia in August, Tim is pumped to be heading back home for his east coast tour.  The charismatic and good-humoured Tim laughs as he jests that fans can expect “a few new songs at the shows with the same bad jokes!“
