For more than a decade, prolific Melbournian multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Tim Gum has been busy crafting hundreds of songs with the one purpose: maximum simultaneous hapiness and sadness. It seemed the logical thing to do. Music is at heart an emotional beast after all.

After much persistent insistance and pressure from inside-world friends, in 2012 Tim Gum has deemed it time to set these songs free.

Halfbeak music is a combination of Bukowski-inspired lyrics with heart and humour, and the dreamy, noisy, beautiful post-punk, shoegaze flavoured guitars of James Pratt.

2012 was a busy year in the recording factory for Halfbeak, with the release of four EPs, including debut EP "Killing One Bird With Two Stones", now available on itunes and Spotify. The recordings and performances have been uniformly well-received, and garnered the label: "Kinks with added soul".

If you are on the prowl for new music with heart, soul, originality and consequence... welcome to the Halfbeak song factory.
