Over the past decade, Timothy Nelson has established himself as one of Perth’s premier songwriters. Though his career has twisted and turned, both in style and in subject, from fronting Timothy Nelson & The Infidels and High Horse, earning multiple WAMI’s, to moonlighting in The Kill Devils Hills – it is solo, where Nelson’s always been driven to go.
On Words Like Young, his debut solo album, Nelson deftly forges a sound that’s all his own; he has the ability to take straight forward power-pop, alt-country and classic rock 'n' roll and hammer down a sound that doesn’t feel like an exercise in time travel. Diverse, enigmatic, dynamic and refreshingly rebellious, Nelson explores topics of personal growth with heavy introspection.
Words Like Young, out November 4, digitally, sees Nelson at the top of his game, reaching new sonic heights while creatively evolving lyrically.
