Artist: Tim Rogers
Best known as the front-man of legendary Australian rock band You Am I, Tim Rogers has described himself as a 'pockmarked streak of pelican shit'. Not the colossal ego you usually associate with rock stars – but then again he has never been one to do or say what is expected of him. In a business filled with phoney rebels and wannabe artists, he is the real thing.
Songwriter: Mick Thomas
As the frontman for seminal Aussie group Weddings Parties Anything and an established solo artist in his own right, Mick Thomas is renowned as a storyteller. Boasting an ear for rich, warmly weathered folk, he has a knack for nailing the minutiae of Australian life without resorting to cliches.
