Gina Timms returns to Tamworth to record her ‘birthday’ CD
Tasmanian singer-songwriter Gina Timms is returning to Tamworth this week to record her new EP, appropriately titled It’s Time. Gina will lay down the five songs at John Lee’s Fat Tracks Studio, located at picturesque Moore Creek, just outside the Tamworth city limits.

For several years now, Gina has put her career on hold as she has been raising her two handsome sons, Jakeb and Samuel, as well as battling one of the strongest foes she has ever faced – cancer. Gina has beaten the cancer three times in the past and made herself a promise that if she pulled through the exhaustive treatment, she would celebrate her 40th birthday in style, by releasing a new EP.

Gina’s 40th falls on Saturday, January 19, 2008 – day two of the mighty Tamworth Country Music Festival – and she plans to launch the CD in style, with one mighty hot band and a big birthday crowd. Gina first came to Tamworth in 1991, ostensibly to record an album – and loved the place so much she stayed for five years.
On her new recording Gina will present two originals – New Friend In Cyberspace, which is all about people meeting in internet chat rooms – and it’s been going over a treat at her live gigs. The second original is I’ll Be Out That Door, which tells the tale of a girl deciding to make the break from a long-term relationship.
Gina comes to Tamworth each year to host and coordinate the Aristocrat Country Entertainer of the Year Quest, and the Ladies of Country, a showcase of stunning girls who are “out there doing it”, staged on opening night of the festival in Legends Bar at Wests.
Anyone who’s been in the audience of the “girls’ show”, will know Gina’s signature song, Texas When I Die. The song was originally performed by Tanya Tucker, but when Gina discovered it back in 1993, she’s finished every gig with it since that time and made it her own. This song will also be included in the recording project.
When she’s in Tamworth Gina works with some incredible musicians, many of whom will join her in the studio for this long overdue recording session – Dave “Stix” Adams on drums; Rob Brown on bass; Rusty Crook on guitars; Nicole Geddes and Ryan Sampson on harmony vocals; Wayne Goodwin on fiddle; Mick Green on keyboards, banjo and guitars; and Lawrie Minson on pedal steel and dobro.
Gina is also trying to source a local cello player for the recording sessions, so accomplished cellists are invited to contact John Lee at Fat Tracks Studio on (02) 6767 1371 to register their interest.
