TJ Eckleberg TJ Eckleberg

TJ Eckleberg returns from Berlin to Sydney for an intimate solo set showcasing songs spanning his career and work from recently released West & Lime.
A journey spanning twenty years and five independent albums, TJ Eckleberg fuses soulful vocals, jagged guitars and urban grooves with holler blues, poetry and a willingness to push boundaries in independent soul and alternative rock.
In 2012’s West & Lime ‘70s glam collides with cascading tremolo; tape echo bounces from buzz-saw bass and velvet overdrive; raucous organs grind like lovers in the backseat. It’s only the end of the world you know, only the end of the world... The guitar trembles and spits between fuzz and uncertainty – is it the end of the world? Or the world we once knew?
West & Lime is available as a free download from
His recording career spans five independent releases: jazz-tinged Waiting Room (1997); the bright eyed pop of SUPERHYDRATED (2000); tone poem illumineon (2003); soulful When you get down to it (2008); and dirty rock trio West & Lime (2012).
TJ's solo sets are rare, his music is always surprising.
