Having played in bands from his late teens, Including fronting widely popular Melbourne pop punk outfit High Society, Tim Hampshire changed tact in 2008 and began a solo acoustic career. With the still distinct Punk influences entwined into his musical exploits, Tim has created an ever vibrant Punk Rock sound of honesty and Integrity whilst still keeping the subtlety and raw sound of a simple acoustic and unplugged set.
Having shared stages with the likes of Bodyjar, The Smith Street Band, Foxtrot, The Bennies and The Ramshackle Army as well as artists such as Scott Reynolds (ALL, The Pavers), Peter Black & Keish De Silva (The Hard Ons), Grant Hart (Husker Du), Jen Buxton, Darren Gibson, Laura Mardon, Georgia Maq, Jamie Hay and Linc LeFevre – Tim has established himself as an acoustic artist that can cover many diverse genres – but can still provide an insightful, raw and honest sound that will leave the listener asking questions and wanting more.
Tim’s debut album “The Fast Times Will Be My Fuel” was released in February 2016 via Anchorhead records to rave reviews and again Tim went touring all over Australia as well as New Zealand to support his new release.
2016 was a very busy year for Tim and his music and 2017 is shaping up to be even busier with his 6th solo release due in the middle of the year, a trip to the United States for several shows towards the end of the year, plans for many more shows around Australia as well as more international touring.
