Introducing Totara Jack

About Totara Jack:
Over two years in New Delhi, Cameron Deyell wrote songs as a way to make sense of life in an intense and crazy mega-city. His textural guitar playing and ghostly vocals created a parallel world where he escaped from the modern Indian miracle. Taking the New Zealand nickname of his grandmother’s great-grandfather, he slowly became Totara Jack.
Producer Lachlan Carrick (Gotye, Lior) travelled to Delhi where he and Totara Jack collected harmoniums, toy keyboards and percussion. In his one room home studio, with Lachlan’s help, Totara Jack’s delicate tactile world took shape.
