Since establishing ‘Crooked Saint’, Australian singer/songwriter Tim Wheatley has been hard it. The last two years has seen him release two independent ‘Alt/Country’ EP’s and two singles to critical acclaim, and seen him tour the country three times over. In which time ‘Tim Wheatley & Crooked Saint’ has managed to straddle both independent and mainstream radio within Australia with the help of ARIA award winning producer, Paul Mckercher.
Following the completion of his debut album recorded with his band ‘Crooked Saint’ in Melbourne’s famed ‘Sing Sing’ studios, Wheatley moved to Los Angeles with the intention of giving the US market a taste of the fourth-coming album. Teaming up with producer Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Warren Zevon, Johnny Cash) at the Capitol Studios in Hollywood, they tailored an EP featuring the single ‘Burning The Midnight Oil’.
