Tim was at the 2018 Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA) Music Awards at the International Convention Centre, in Sydney, this week.

In keeping with the APRA Music Awards tradition, artists put their own spin on the songs nominated in the coveted peer-voted APRA Song of the Year category. Tim performed Paul Kelly and Billy Miller’s Song of the Year winning Firewood and Candles live, with a seven piece band.

The Band:

Tim – Piano
Ben Vanderwal – Drums
Jak Housden – Guitar
James Haselwood – Bass
Ken Allars – Trumpet
Mike Raper – Trombone
Steve Fitzmaurice – Alto/Bari Saxes

There’s a little pre show interview with Tim here.

The US edition of When I Grow Up, the new magical picture book inspired by Tim’s hit song from the acclaimed and multi-award-winning Matilda the Musical is out today! It imagines life from a child’s viewpoint, with all the humour and poignancy of the song.

The book is illustrated by Steve Antony, an internationally published, award-winning author and illustrator of many picture books, including the Mr Panda series.

Published by Scholastic Press US, it’s available from all good booksellers, including:

Amazon US
Barnes & Noble

Or on Kindle.

You can take a peek inside and find details about the already published UK edition here and the Australian edition here. Each cover, for the three editions, is slightly different but infused with the same playful energy and imagination for which When I Grow Up is so beloved.
