Since establishing Crooked Saint, Australian singer/songwriter Tim Wheatley has been hard at it. In the last two years he has released two independent ‘Alt/Country’ EP’s and two singles to critical acclaim, which allowed him to tour the country three times over supporting the likes of Tim Freedman, Sarah McLeod, The Black Sorrows, Ian Moss & The Angels. Tim Wheatley & Crooked Saint have also received substantial support on both independent and mainstream radio within Australia with the direction of ARIA award winning producer, Paul Mckercher.
Following the completion of his debut album recorded with his band ‘Crooked Saint’ in Melbourne’sSing Sing studios, Wheatley moved to Los Angeles and performed at G’Day LA, with the intention of giving the U.S. market a taste of the fourth-coming album.
Teaming up with producer Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Warren Zevon, and Johnny Cash) at the infamous Capitol Studio’s in Hollywood, they tailored the ‘Crooked Saint EP’ featuring the single ‘Burning The Midnight Oil’, which is gathering momentum on radio stations across America and Europe, as well as appearing on the soundtrack for a feature presentation at the LA Film Festival.
