Heath Cullen hails from the hills surrounding the tiny rural village of Candelo in South Eastern NSW – a far-flung corner of Australia that he still calls his home. His 2013 album The Still And The Steep, recorded in Los Angeles with guests Jim Keltner (Bob Dylan, John Lennon, The Traveling Wilburys), Larry ‘The Mole’ Taylor (Canned Heat, Tom Waits), and Marc Ribot (Tom Waits, Marianne Faithful), received great critical acclaim and was nominated for the prestigious Australian Music Prize.  Heath Cullen returned in 2015 with his third album, Outsiders. This was recorded over just two days at Sing Sing studios with Elvis Costello’s longtime band The Imposters – Pete Thomas, Steve Nieve, and Davey Faragher. This recording marks the first occasion that The Imposters as a unit have collaborated with a singer other than Costello.
