Dead Horse Gap Co-creator, composer/music director/performer (Narrator)
Heath Cullen is a singer, songwriter, performer, record producer and independent recording artist, from the rural village of Candelo, New South Wales. Over the past 10 years he has forged an international career: touring and recording in Australia and the US, while remaining based in the regional NSW town where he was raised. He has released three self-produced albums, all through his own label, Five By Nine Recordings: Of these, The Still And The Steep (2013), was nominated for the Australian Music Prize; and Outsiders (2015) garnered rave reviews and was named “One of the finest, most inspired Australian rock albums in quite some time… the work of a man well on top of his game” by Rhythms magazine. Outsiders was recorded with Elvis Costello’s legendary band the Imposters – the only time in their 35-year career the band have collaborated with a singer other than Costello. Heath Cullen was the recipient of the 2018/19 Create NSW Music Fellowship. His fourth full length album Springtime in the Heart, produced by three-time Grammy winning producer Joe Henry, was released in 2020.
