TIMBERWOLF
NEW SINGLE ‘GRACE’ & EAST COAST TOUR DATES
22-year-old Adelaide Folk artist Timberwolf has recently released his brand new single ‘Grace’ and is gearing up to take Australia by force on his national tour, which kicks off on Friday November 15th.
A tale of the love that won’t work, ‘Grace’ encapsulates Timberwolf’s earnest, heartfelt spirit, which has quickly captured the hearts of audiences nation wide.
2 of the tracks from his debut EP Man & Moon’ have enjoyed rotation on many radio stations all around Australia including Triple J where they were played on various programs such as 2013, Home & Hosed  and Roots N All.
Not shy of packing up the van to play wherever he can, Chris as Timberwolf has spent the best part of 2013 touring the country and working hard to establish his name, having created the musical alias less than a year ago, and it’s finally starting to pay off with a solid loyal underground following. This shows in already having played alongside the likes of Jordie Lane, Tigertown, Tanya Batt & Jack Carty, as well as sold out shows of his own.
Timberwolf will be bringing his renowned live show to stages all around Australia to celebrate the release of ‘Grace’, coupled with the release of the new film clip on Sunday 10th November.
“Such a gorgeous folky tune from a great young songwriter.”
Sarah Howells – Triple J 
 
“Get amongst this if Boy & Bear and Mumford & Sons are on your playlist. You won’t be disappointed.”  
Dom Alessio – Triple J
 
“These are some really great tracks.”
Andrew Edgson – Mastering Engineer, Studios 301

MONA FOMA 2014 FESTIVAL LINEUP ANNOUNCED
The Museum of Old and New Art in Tasmania kicks off its annual Festival of Music and Art, where MONA’s creative chaos spills out all over Hobart in a most unpredictable way.

MONA FOMA is back, but not as you know it; running from Wednesday 15 January to Sunday 19 January 2014, MOFO is skipping across the Port of Hobart and anchoring down at Macquarie Wharf (MAC1 and MAC2 to you) for the first time.

Featuring two stages, three orchestras, more than 200 artists and four hours’ sleep a night (okay, so that hasn’t changed), this MOFO program is all over the place. On purpose.

There’s a dancing robot, a free-styling philosopher, prog-punk space opera, morning meditation, black metal with violins, gender liberationists, ambient electronica, string quartet protest music, a Krautrock pioneer, bluegrass Bach, improvised pipe organ, and the usual Bacchanalian nightclub mayhem of Faux Mo. Oh, and lasers. You know there will be lasers.

Since the first MONA FOMA in 2009, the five-day party has grown to become Tasmania’s largest – and what some consider Australia’s best – contemporary music festival (Helpmann Awards 2012), showcasing a broad range of art forms, including sound, noise, dance, theatre, visual art, performance and new media.

Curated by Brian Ritchie (Violent Femmes, The Break) with MONA senior curators Nicole Durling and Olivier Varenne, MONA FOMA is a festival designed to inspire new experiences in music and art. Continuing MONA’s egalitarian philosophy, the MOFO 2014 program is pretty out there… but we trust you’ll find a way. We’re making it easy for you.

“Music is around us everyday, everywhere, whether we want it or not. Some people are lucky to find ‘their’ music to play or for listening at least once in their lifetime,” MONA FOMA Curator Brian Ritchie says. “Others are not so lucky. MOFO is a curatorial gambling operation that aspires to increase your odds by widening options.”

MONA is Australia’s unique art experience and MOFO is the perfect time to visit Hobart for a museum and festival double-up. Go all-in, MOFOs. This one’s got a wide winning margin.

Reserve your place before positions fill up ? applications are now available online and close midnight Sunday November 10th.

Face The Music opens the conference with a special forum challenging the shakedown in Australian Festivals this year. Do we have a crisis? Or is it just a shift in what music punters want? Some festivals are having their best year ever, while some of Australia?s favourites like Homebake, Harvest, Parklife, Peats Ridge and Pyramid are cancelling or restructuring. What The Festival! Please don?t take our summer away! Face The Music presents people who should know: Festival creators Ken West (Big Day Out co-founder), Paul Sloan (Rock-It WA, Billions Australia), Groovin The Moo Promoter Steve Halpin and Blink (Camp A Low Hum, NZ).

Melbourne artist Courtney Barnett joins the Face The Music program for the APRA Songwriting Masterclass. Courtney has received numerous AIR and APRA Award nominations and played shows across the USA, UK and France. Her dense but honest lyrics combined with psychedelic folk and pop sensibility has caused chaos at CMJ in New York this week as ?people squeeze into every available nook and cranny to catch the Melbourne songwriter. ?the word is well and truly out? (themusic.com.au).

ARIA Award winning artist and producer M-Phazes has featured on releases from a who?s who of international talent (Talib Kweli, Redman, Kimbra, 360, Bliss N Eso). Yamaha presents a unique workshop opportunity to take a walk through M-Phazes unique production methods, focusing on drum programming and sampling, and providing an insight into the approach of one of Australia?s most sought after producers.

Held over two days at Arts Centre Melbourne November 15th and 16th, Face The Music is Melbourne?s annual contemporary music summit for artists and the music industry.

Warner Music Australia with support from Converse, Sharpie & eBay are delighted to announce the
launch  of  their  major  charity  Auction  to  help  raise  funds  this  October  during  Cancer  Awareness
Month.

Inspired  after  generating  funds  of  over  $120k  for  the  National Breast  Cancer  Foundation  in  2012,
Warner Music Australia has spent the past 18 months creating the inaugural In Their Shoes initiative.
In  Their  Shoes  is  the  aptly  named  major  worldwide  creative  project  which  has  seen  musicians
across the globe come together in the name of charity to hand design Converse sneakers.

The inspiration behind In Their Shoes was born on a beautiful Sydney summer’s day, when Warner
Music’s  blog Cool  Accidents set  about  to  film  an  ‘Under  the  Bridge  Session’  with  U.S  indie  band
Grouplove.  But before filming could even start, what really caught the crew’s eye was a pair of
sneakers.  What at first appeared to be a pair of custom designed Converse sneakers worn by the
band’s tour manager, in fact turned out to be a unique one off design by the bands vocalist and
Artist in her own right, Hannah Hooper.

Like  all  great  ideas  this  simple  yet  uniquely  created  Converse  sneaker inspired  the  beginning  of
Warner  Music/Cool  Accident’s  In  their  Shoes  initiative.   Over  the  course  of  18  months  local  and
touring  musicians  were  asked  to  create  a  design  with  nothing  more  than  a  pair  of  plain  white
Converse sneakers & sharpie fabric markers.  The artists in turn put their own unique stamp on the
sneakers adding colour, design, humour and of course, their very own personal touch.

The result was an overwhelming 70 pairs of sneakers designed by a diverse range of musicians from
all over the world and from all walks of life.  Contributing Artists include Bruno Mars, The Black Keys,
Ed Sheeran, James Blunt, New Order, Kimbra, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Red Hot Chili Peppers,
Skrillex and of course, the pair that started it all, those designed by Grouplove.

These hand designed, one of a kind works of art will be auctioned off at the end of October via a
global auction on eBay with proceeds going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation or Charity
of the artist’s choice.
The sneaker designs will be gradually unveiled from Monday October 7 th  through Cool Accidents
‘Sneaker Peak’ website and also at the official website www.intheirshoes.com.au

A  Public Exhibition will be held from midday to  7pm on Sunday October  27th at The Standard in
Sydney where all 70 sneaker designs will be on display.  Entry is all ages and by gold coin donation.

The  auction,  hosted  on  eBay,  will  go  live  on  Thursday  October  24th  at  6pm on  the  dedicated
page www.ebay.com.au/intheirshoes and bidders will be able to start their bids from $99.    There
will  also  be  a  shareable  function  that  will  post  people’s  favourite  shoes  to  their  social  channels.
The auction will close on Tuesday October 29th.

In  Demand  (eBays  Charity  partner)  will  facilitate  the  auction,  with  all  sneakers  and  their  all-
important certificate of authenticity being shipped to their lucky new owners on October 30th.
