Bio

After casting a spell on all with her debut EP, ‘Rosie’, Thelma Plum has put down her guitar and taken a step in a brave new musical direction.

With Triple J Unearthed, NIMA and DEADLY wins under her belt, Thelma relocated to the Inner West of Sydney, absorbing the city and its sounds, developing her craft to expand beyond the 6 strings.

Collaborating along the way with beat smith, M-Phazes (Kimbra, Eminem), lending his sought after talents to sculpt a sound that is forward thinking and modern without compromising Thelma’s warm colloquial purr.

‘How Much Does Your Love Cost?’ is the first single off Thelma’s forthcoming EP, ‘Monster’ and is mixed by Eric J Dobowsky (Chet Faker / Flight Facilities)
Opening with the jangle of an Ennio Morricone western score, Thelma’s voices commands focus as a crescendo of strings builds beneath, breaking into a truly hypnotic chorus.

Still only 19, Thelma is already a seasoned performer, completing a run of SOLD OUT national shows in 2013. Now, in 2014, Thelma has will be bringing her Monster to a town near you – best be on the look out..

Congratulations to Thelma Plum!

Thelma’s music hits on multiple fronts; her acoustic craft is well developed and manages to sound both hushed and warm at the same. Her songwriting too is impressive with a disarming charm to her lyrics.

Love the name, and love the voice, but this feels like a sketch of a better song waiting to be fleshed out.
