The Telltales are an acoustic pop band from Sydney. They have a publishing deal with Roxie Music, and a distribution deal with MGM Distribution. Their songs have featured on film, on radio and in clips on television in Australia and overseas. The Telltales are launching their third album, Under the waterline, and expect to build on the momentum of their previous two.

The Telltales released their self-titled debut album in 2003 having built a keen following playing in Sydney pubs and in venues on the East coast. The film clip from the single Absolve You from their first album received daily airplay on Max and was played on Video Hits, MTV and Rage. The album launch was supported by live performances on Sydney and regional radio programs.

The songs on the first album received the following praise in music street press: ‘Pure, heartfelt pop melodies…simple songs of love and loss’ (Drum Media) and ‘pop music which harkens back to the grand days of pop songwriting’ (The Brag).

In 2005 The Telltales released their second album, Haymaking, to critical acclaim: ‘Great melodies, intelligent playing, thoughtful arrangements and insightful lyrics — what more could you ask for in a pop record?’ (Drum Media). The single from this album, The Phone Call, featured in Solo, an Australian film which played in cinemas throughout Australia in 2006. The film clip for The Phone Call also played on commercial TV and was picked up by various club TV networks.

No fewer than ten of The Telltales’ songs have made the finals of national and international song competitions, including Sorry which made the final twelve of the international Unisong competition in 2005.
