Timmy Trumpet gets set to perform at the next instalment of Lunar Electric Music Festival, Australia’s biggest homegrown EDM festival in Port Macquarie.
Where did music all begin for you?
I come from a family of musicians. My dad played trumpet, and his dad played before him. I’ve been playing since I could hold the thing. I actually wanted to play saxophone, but my parents couldn’t afford it. Lucky though, Timmy Saxophone doesn’t have the same ring to it.
You’re obviously known for your trumpet skills – what other instruments can you play?
I’m probably better on piano than I am on trumpet, and I can play guitar too. I’ve played a lot of instruments over the years.
Tell us about your collaboration with Savage and the Freaks; how did it come about, and who else have you enjoyed collaborating with?
Freaks was originally an instrumental, and the A&R manager suggested getting Savage on the track. As soon as Savage sent over a demo, it felt like the track was finally complete. He nailed it, and from then I knew it was something special. Since then I’ve been honoured to work with industry legends like Hardwell, Vini Vici, Blasterjaxx and so many others. I love collaborating with other artists!
What goals have you kicked this year?
This year I released more music than every before, played more shows in places I’ve never been before and launched my own arena tour called Freak Show. 2019 is going to be even bigger. I can’t wait!
You’re back for your second consecutive year playing our EDM festival, Lunar Electric. What did you enjoy about last time, and what can fans expect this time around?
Lunar Electric has such a great vibe! I love getting to hang out with my mates and play some top shelf bangers. I’ve got some new music coming out early 2019, and you guys are going to be the first to hear it!
I’ve got so many big plans for 2019 that I can’t reveal yet, but I can say I’m hoping to announce a Freak Show World Tour.
Lunar Electric is on Saturday, January 5th at Cassegrain Winery. Tickets are available from oztix.com.au
