Rising Australian Indie / Folk Artist Timberwolf is the moniker for Christopher Panousakis, a 23 year-old singer/songwriter from Adelaide. With strong roots in 60’s/70’s blues and rock, his take on modern folk rock music emulates soulful but cryptic songwriting, complimented by a melodic blend of guitars and vocals.
Following a year of touring in 2014 with a list of established acts including The Pierce Brothers, Holy Holy, Little May, Ash Grunwald, Mikhael Paskalev, Dustin Tebbutt, Jordie Lane, and playing several festivals around the country, Timberwolf did manage to find the time to hideaway and record his long awaited and highly anticipated sophomore EP ‘Flux’.
‘Flux’ is Timberwolf’s first recorded work with a full band and was recorded and co-produced by Mark Myers (formerly of The Middle East) in his Cairns studio. Chris mentions “Mark and I worked together through the whole EP to try and draw on some of the darker and more eerie elements of The Middle East’s recordings to highlight songwriting born out of quite a painful experience”
Timberwolf first made head waves in 2013 following various successes with singles from his debut EP ‘Man and Moon’. ‘Garden’, reached no. 1 on the Triple J Unearthed “Roots Chart” and featured in consecutive weeks on Triple J’s “Roots N All” program. Following the release of his debut EP, the swell picked up all at once for Timberwolf in 2013 as he toured nationally on the back of a number of his own sold out shows. Both singles ‘Into the Cold’ and ‘Grace’ enjoyed rotation on radio stations all around Australia including Triple J, who featured both tracks on their ‘2013’, ‘Home & Hosed’ and ‘Roots n All’ programs. Timberwolf was also named a Triple J Unearthed feature artist after the successful release of ‘Into the Cold’, which – like ‘Garden’ – reached no. 1 in the Triple J unearthed ‘Roots’ chart, and was hand picked by Dom Alessio to feature in the Triple J ‘Unearthed five’ podcast.
