I met Heath Cullen not long after this album was released, and had only heard a snippet on local ABC Radio. When I got a copy I couldn't stop playing it. He's a great inspiration, and this is his first album. The quality of his productions has always been first class. Was honoured to be able to host him for a performance at Nerrigundah Ag Bureau in 2017
Favorite track: Break My Heart.
Debut album from Australian guitar-slinger-turned-tunesmith with his band the 45, released in 2010.
"I can hear the slow-paced isolation breathing through Cullen’s music - the recordings always seem intimate, whether they’re barely whispered acoustic songs or sweeping rock odes.” RHYTHMS MAGAZINE
"A remarkably assured debut.. the album is a study in space, texture and melodic beauty.” THE CANBERRA TIMES
