A former Ulladulla High School student and local barista is set to star alongside the frontman of You Am I.
Scott Thomson, the man behind Number One Jockey, is one of a number of local artists including Tall Shaun and the Resolution Blues, The Stayers, Ulladulla High School Didg group and more at Tim Rogers and Friends, held at the Dunn Lewis Centre on Saturday, November 16.
Thomson, who has supported Hein Cooper on his Underneath it All Australian tour earlier this year including shows at Milton Theatre, said he was looking forward to playing alongside Rogers.
"I'm excited to play along side such a well known artist, not to mention the other great local artists supporting," he said.
"It's always a bit more intimidating playing to a home town show, so many familiar faces."
Thomson's solo act began as a "handful of demos getting into the ears of some people" who are now his great friends.
"It trickled from one ear to another, where I was then invited to open for Hein Cooper ... playing some great venues. I'd never performed before, let alone sung to anybody. It really took me by surprise."
The young man emulates a "Bob-Dylanish" sound and has released a six-track EP Blue Sky Blues. He plans to release an album titled Flowers In June, taking a different approach to his lo-fi story-telling style heard on the EP.
Tim Rogers and Friends will be hosted by a new not-for-profit organisation Our Town, who have partnered with Treading Lightly in the MUD to have waste free events.
On Saturday, patrons will get a banquet dinner by Tallwood with a drink on arrival.
