Melbourne's finest purveyor of heartbroken folk-rock, Jim Lawrie is a songwriting gem. On record and live, his performances are gorgeous and Jim's trademark vocal purity is a highlight; melodic, harmonious, warm and human. Slacker of the Year is the culmination of years of creative introspection, Lawrie's own stunning take on the building blocks of classic rock and folk. The shimmering title-track is a gorgeously finger-picked daydream ballad which entertains the idea that a bedroom-bound slacker could somehow be celebrated as hero to the masses. Written and produced by Jim Lawrie. Recorded, produced and mixed by Callum John Barter at Newmarket Studios.
