The Whitlams are one of Australia's favourite bands, whose appeal reaches audiences of all ages and tastes. With lyrics described as having a charming cynicism and enhanced by an instinct for poignant melody, they won Best Group at the 1998 ARIA Awards, as well as Song of the Year and Best Independent Release for their 3rd album 'Eternal Nightcap'.
The current lineup has remained unchanged for the last 7 years and 4 albums, and consists Tim Freedman on piano and vocals, Jak Housden on guitar, Warwick Hornby on bass guitar and Terepai Richmond on drums.
The Whitlams recorded output spans 6 studio albums over their decade-long existence, with the album Torch The Moon debuting at Number 1 and becoming the third consecutive Whitlams album to go platinum. This was followed by the critical acclaimed double album Little Cloud produced by J. Walker of Machine Translations. August 2008 saw the band release 'Truth, Beauty & A Picture of You - The Best of The Whitlams' on Black Yak Records through Warner Music. This album remained in the Top 10 of the Aria charts for 6 consecutive weeks.
