King Pig has spent 2013/14 showcasing their authentic, alluring sounds to the Far North and creating a buzz around King Pig Music on the internet as well as committing every spare moment to the release of their debut EP ‘King Pig’.

Tim Wright (vocals, guitar) grew up in the North. His style of song writing reflects on life around him, what is, what has been and what could be. Tim’s vocal sounds are seductively strong delivered with utmost passion. He is a truly unique individual.

Dal Smart (drums, vocals) has been making music for more than 20 years. Collaborating with such musical geniuses as The Mad Professor, Lee Scratch Perry, Sly and Robbie, Paulie B and Rudecat Dal’s love of music can be seen in every show he plays, every band he records, every sound he produces.


Big Sister Studios, one of Far North Queensland’s most exciting new spaces is where King Pig’s E.P was recorded by famed underground producer Mark Myers (The Middle East, Emma Louise). 
Along with a cast of acclaimed musicians including Jordan Ireland (The Middle East), Mark Myers (The Middle East, The Starry Field), Simon McMenamin (The McMenamins), David Breeze (Clarketown, The Raconteur’s) and Ben Jones (The Dialers).

‘King Pig’ is 6 songs that really show the mature and beautiful simplicity behind this group. From the angelic and moody sounding 'Right Sun' through to the blues driven 'Heart of the Mountain' and the folk story telling of 'Throw a little Sand' this EP really captures what King Pig is all about…. Simply stunning music!!!! 

King Pig is available now through 'Junkie Uncle’ records…..
