Jim Lawrie

WHILE JIM LAWRIE WAS CUTTING HIS TEETH FOR YEARS DRUMMING FOR EAGLE & THE WORM, SASKWATCH AND DOZENS OF OTHER MELBOURNE-BASED MUSIC PROJECTS (SOMETHING HE CONTINUES TO DO) HE GAVE LITTLE HINT OF HIS PRODIGIOUS SONGWRITING TALENT. IT WASN’T UNTIL HE CAME OUT FROM BEHIND THE KIT THAT HE REVEALED HIMSELF AS ONE OF MELBOURNE’S FINEST PURVEYORS OF HEARTBROKEN FOLK-ROCK. LAWRIE ARRIVED WITH A FULLY REALIZED SOUND AND WONDERFUL SIMPLICITY TO HIS APPROACH TO MUSIC – HEART-ON-SLEEVE HONESTY, EFFORTLESS ARRANGEMENTS AND HIS STUNNING PURE VOICE SOARING FROM ONE PERFECTLY CRAFTED CHORUS TO THE NEXT.


 
 

Slacker Of The Year (2017)

IN JUNE 2017 JIM RELEASED SLACKER OF THE YEAR. THE HIGH-POINT OF HIS CAREER, RECEIVING UNANIMOUSLY GLOWING PRAISE FROM CRITICS AND FANS ALIKE.

RECORDED AND MIXED BY CALLUM JOHN BARTER AT NEWMARKET STUDIOS, SLACKER OF THE YEAR IS A CULMINATION OF YEARS OF CREATIVE INTROSPECTION. JIMS OWN STUNNING TAKE ON THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF CLASSIC ROCK AND FOLK.

"HE SHOULD BE CONSIDERED ONE OF THIS DECADE'S FINEST SONGWRITERS." - THE MUSIC ★★★★

 
 
 

 
 
 

Eons (2015)

JIM LAWRIE RELEASED HIS SECOND ALBUM EONS IN 2015 – AN ACCLAIMED COLLECTION OF CINEMATIC LOVE SONGS WHICH CAME TO DEFINE HIS SOUND.

EONS SHOWCASED AN ARTIST TRANSITIONING FROM HIS PREVIOUS INCARNATION AS A FOLK SINGER-SONGWRITER INTO A PURVEYOR OF SOARING ALT-COUNTRY ROCK. TAKING CUES FROM SONGWRITERS AND BANDS LIKE TOM PETTY AND FLEETWOOD MAC - OR MORE RECENTLY RYAN ADAMS AND THE WAR ONDRUGS, THE PERFORMANCES ARE GORGEOUS AND JIM'S TRADEMARK VOCAL PURITY IS A HIGHLIGHT THROUGHOUT; MELODIC, HARMONIOUS, WARM AND HUMAN.
