TZU ‘COVER UP MOTEL’ FAREWELL 2009 TOUR

TZU - Open Arms Festival @ Coffs Harbour - November 2008 It’s been a magical past year for Melbourne’s hip-hop maestros TZU.

Beginning with his first record, Sha Sha, released in 2002, Kweller’s albums have always been stylistically restless, moving from indie rock to ballads to anti-folk to melodic rock, often from song to song.
