About Tim Van der Kuil
Tim Van Der Kuil grew up in the Perth hills and attended WA Academy of Performing Arts Trinity College. After playing at local haunts, such as the Raffles, Charles Hotel and the City Hotel, with local covers band Worlds End, the trained jazz guitarist shifted to Sydney in 1991, where he played in pop singer Jenny Morris’ band.
In 1996, Tim relocated to London where he formed the rock group, the Vegastones, which were signed to Richard Branson’s V2 record label and spent around five years tours around the UK before the band broke up.
More than twenty years ago, the Mundaring Arts Scholarship Trust awarded young guitarist Tim Van Der Kuil of Darlington a scholarship to help him launch a career in the super-competitive world of music. Two decades on, and now based in London, Tim is playing guitar for Adele, the Grammy award-winning British singer who, with album sales of more than 10 million, is currently one of the world’s highest selling artist.
Over the past 20 years, Tim has performed or recorded with such big names as Robbie Williams, The Script, Daniel Merriweather, Sia, Jason Mraz, Taylor Swift, Moby, Ray Davies, Sugababes, Delta Goodrem, and Tina Turner. He has toured the US, appeared on the David Letterman show, and last December played at a Royal Variety performance in London.
