Self proclaimed ‘prince of folk,’ The Bedroom Philosopher AKA Justin Heazlewood is one of the most innovative and original artists on the scene today, a trailblazing hyper-wit, constantly blurring the divide between music, comedy and theatre. In 2002 became a cult figure with a weekly segment on Triple J’s Morning Show. Over the next 6 months he produced 30 comedy folk songs with songs like ‘My Nan Really Likes Radiohead’, ‘Golden Gaytime,’ ‘Jesus on Big Brother’ and the cult 80’s television tribute ‘Generation ABC.’ In 2004, he released his debut studio album ‘In Bed With My Doona’ on Nan and Pop Records.
Since then, The Melbourne-Based Bedroom Philosopher has enlightened audiences at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Big Laugh Comedy Festival, Falls Festival, National Folk Festival and Hobart Comedy Festival with his humorous folk awkwardness. His songs have featured in Triple J’s Hottest 100 several times, and with the release of his latest album, “songs from the 86 Tram”, he is showing no signs of anything changing.
“my live show is both a remarkably memorable life changing experience and cause for major concern.”
