Tim Nelson


Timothy Nelson is a celebrated singer/songwriter from Perth, Western Australia, who has a new album coming out in September 2023. He has supported bands such as Parquet Courts and Drugdealer, and has to date won 14x West Australian Music Awards (WAM) including Best Pop Act, Best Album, Best Male Vocalist, and the coveted WAM Song Of The Year.
Since he was 16, Timothy Nelson has been a mainstay within the Perth music scene. His band, Timothy Nelson and the Infidels, released two albums between 2009 and 2014, toured nationally and supported the likes of Parquet Courts, Megan Washington, The Whitlams, Eskimo Joe and Birds Of Tokyo. During this period, Nelson also formed the side project High Horse, who released multiple singles, enjoyed regular Triple J play, before Nelson went on to focus on being a solo artist, releasing the album ‘Words Like Young’ in 2016 to critical acclaim, with the Australian music press praising it to be “A brilliant solo debut” (The Music) and “A wonderfully personal, yet inviting release” (Rolling Stone), as well as ABC Radio National making it Album Of The Week. After the album’s release, Nelson formed a new solo band, and toured nationally - opening for the likes of Air Supply, Icehouse and Liz Stringer.
As a songwriter, Nelson has collaborated and co-written with a multitude of artists and made regular trips to the US for co-writing sessions and live showcases in Los Angeles and Nashville. In 2018, Nelson co-wrote and featured on two single releases with ARIA award winning hip-hop artist Drapht: “The Come Down Was Real” and “Summer They Say”. Nelson went under the alias Indoor Fins for the track, and both songs were added to high rotation on Triple J. Nelson then joined Drapht for a national arena tour supporting US alternative rock titans Twenty One Pilots. In 2019, Nelson then released the first standalone Indoor Fins single “Here It Goes”. Deviating from the indie pop leanings of his solo work, the track delved more into heavy techno and psychedelic rock influences.
Nelson has continued to release music under both his own name, and as Indoor Fins, releasing the latter’s sophomore EP ‘Antidote’ through New York based indie label Underwater Peoples in 2021.
In 2023, Timothy Nelson and his band are performing regularly around Perth, having recently supported Drugdealer (US) in March. His second solo album “Debaser Tapes”, is slated for release in September this year.
