Voted by Australian Guitar Magazine as one of the Top 25 guitarists, Tim McMillan has been performing his unique style of acoustic music for over a decade. With styles ranging between Celtic, folk to progressive rock and acoustic metal, Tim’s lively and virtuoso performances are blended with tall tales of life in the Bush; all of which have made him a popular live artist throughout Europe and Australia.
He has won numerous awards along the way including: The Maton Young Guitarist of the Year and Cole Clark Guitar Award (for Best Instrumentalist) In 2015. In 2017, Tim released his fifth album “Hiraeth” to critical acclaim.

Hiraeth also features a variety of guest musicians from the rock world, including members of Motörhead, The Sisters of Mercy, Ugly Kid Joe, Mr Bungle and label mates Pulsar Trio.
