Watch our full interview with Tyne-James Organ!
Australian singer-songwriter Tyne-James Organ's hotly-anticipated debut album, Necessary Evil, is finally here! We caught up with the musician before the records release to chat about the collection of songs, his forthcoming tour and so much more.
Recorded with longtime creative partner Chris Collins (Middle Kids, Skegss) at his NSW Hinterland studio, Stokers Siding, Necessary Evil came to be throughout 2020, with Organ immersing himself within the rural surroundings of the studio. The time away from everyday life allowed the musician to completely lose himself within his creative process and compositions, focusing in on what he wanted to convey on his debut.
The result is a rollercoaster of emotions playing out across twelve tracks, ebbing and flowing between moments of joy and triumph, to those more raw and introspective.
Navigating and commenting on themes of grief and pain, power and passion, Organ brings his signature open and raw lyricism atop bare bones acoustics to the collection of songs, leaving his imprint on each composition. Bringing his lyrical mastery to life, Organ's captivating vocal delivery throughout the album is effortlessly natural, soaring above warm sonics that will perfectly soundtrack your next road trip. With lush layers and mesmerising guitar melodies woven throughout the record, Organ has hit the mark on his debut.
Known for wearing his heart on his sleeve, the talented musician crafts his songs from personal experiences. Releasing his debut EP Perseverance in 2019, the collection of songs exhibited raw honesty whilst thematically exploring love, loss, grief and resilience. 2020 saw Organ string of sold-out headline performances in NSW over summer, building his rapidly growing fanbase. In the past, the musician has played some of Australia’s biggest festivals including Splendour in the Grass, Falls, Party in the Paddock, Yours and Owls and Fairgrounds.
Organ will be hitting the road again in support of Necessary Evil, taking to stages nationwide. Kicking off in Adelaide on June 4, the tour will continue on to Perth, Wollongong, Sydney, Byron Bay, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Melbourne, Hobart and Canberra. Organ will be bringing along a slew of Aussie talent, with Perth four-piece Dulcie, Sydney-based artist Carla Wehbe and Melbourne alt-rocker Hayley Mary supporting the musician throughout the tour.
