Listing Detail Tabs

That connoisseur of classic songwriting, Lawrence Arabia - the pseudonym of James Milne - is back with his new album - Absolute Truth and a hearty slice of timeless music inspired as much by 1970's West Coast Americana as New Zealand indie pop.

Born in the "Garden City" of Christchurch, New Zealand, in 1981 (the year the Springbok tour divided the country, and that The Clean debuted with the single 'Tally Ho!"), a youthful James Milne served an illustrious indie-rock apprenticeship touring the US as bassist for Auckland-based pop group The Brunettes, and for Ryan McPhun's Ruby Suns. And then, as Reginald Dwight made way for the musical entity that was Elton John, and David Jones blossomed into David Bowie, so plain old James Milne ceded to the ubermensch that has become one of New Zealand's finest contemporary songwriters and performers - the celebrated singer of songs that is Lawrence Arabia.
