The Whitlams are one of Australia's favourite bands, whose appeal reaches audiences of all ages and tastes. With lyrics described as having a “charming cynicism” and enhanced by an instinct for poignant melody, they won Best Group at the 1998 ARIA Awards, as well as Song of the Year and Best Independent Release for their 3rd album 'Eternal Nightcap'.
The current lineup has remained unchanged for the last 7 years and 4 albums, and consists Tim Freedman on piano and vocals, Jak Housden on guitar, Warwick Hornby on bass guitar and Terepai Richmond on drums.
The Whitlams’ recorded output spans 6 studio albums over their decade-long existence, with the last album Torch The Moon debuting at Number 1 and becoming the third consecutive Whitlams album to go platinum. Their latest album, produced by J. Walker of Machine Translations, is due for release in March 2006 on Black Yak Records through Warner Music.
