3) Boots 'n All - Tim's Journey
Tim Hulsman is a self taught singer/songwriter with a unique perspective on life. His honest reflections upon his experiences are both personable and gripping. Tim’s strict religious upbringing, the rejection of his family’s ideal that he should dedicate his career and life to the church and ultimately the rejection of his faith has had a strong and lasting impact upon his life and music. Tim’s account of his experience during the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami is a powerful story of survival and resiliance. The cathartic influence of music on his own ability to recover from the trauma of the event and help the communities to recover and rebuild is a moving story and well worth a listen. Tim's website is here: http://timhulsman.com/ The Geoscience Australia report about the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami mentioned in the show is available here. Connect with the show via Facebook and Twitter. Thanks for listening.
