His achingly lyrical first solo album, What Rhymes with Cars and Girls cemented You Am I frontman Tim Rogers’ already formidable reputation as one of Australia’s premier songwriters. Playwright Aidan Fennessy (National Interest) has threaded these beautiful songs across the class divide to create a stunning new tale of contemporary love in Australia.
Performed with a live band, What Rhymes with Cars and Girls is an intimate musical treasure of two lovers brought together by fate – and a pizza delivery gone wrong. It’s a raw and complex urban romance – a balm for the hardest of hearts, and solace for anyone who has ever been in love,
It’s a vernacular story wound around Tim Rogers’ lyrics, an urban entanglement of a couple trying to work out love, passion and problems. This story of two people who come from different worlds is a romance to soften the hardest of hearts and a reassurance for anyone who has ever been in love.
