Tim Rogers is excited to announce the release of his seventh solo recording An Actor Repairs which is to be released Friday April 28. It’ll be accompanied by three dates in Perth from April 20-22 (details below).
Whilst You Am I have been bogged down in negotiations about a new group haircut, Rogers is pleading for your attention as he once again confuses hubris for artistry.
The songs on the forthcoming album were written and re-written over two years as an accompaniment to a performance piece Tim was attempting, concerning the retirement from the stage of an elderly Actor.
The scripted elements of the piece gave way as he began working with musicians so dextrous and wilful, more songs were written in a fever, throwing the script away to include songs of devotion and delusion to create the final 12 tracks on the album.
The first single to be lifted from the album is Youth. Tim says, “Youth is a song about a character lifting themselves by the elbows out of the well-spring and accepting the waters won’t cleanse them of their sins. It was written four times, first as a skiffle, then a torch, then a lament, ending as an enthusiasm. Brett Wolfenden commands on drums, Diamond Davey on bass, Xani And Clio as the Grecian Chorus, Rai Preirera on percussion and Shane and I shaking our heads in wonder. If this song came in a dream, knock me out forever.”
An Actor Repairs is out April 28. Tim Rogers will play three tour dates across Perth, firstly on Thursday April 20 at The Rosemount Hotel in North Perth, then Friday April 21 at The Odd Fellow in Fremantle and lastly on Saturday April 22 at Carine Tavern in Duncraig. Tickets from timrogersmusic.net
