Southern Empire is a progressive rock band from Adelaide lead by keyboardist Sean Timms.


After a 17 year involvement with Unitopia ended in 2013, Sean Timms had an album's worth of songs written, but no band to play and record them. He then formed Southern Empire and in April 2015, the group recorded the bed tracks live at internationally renowned recording studio Chapel Lane Studios. Over the next few months overdubs were recorded at Sean's studio, Timms Tunes and the album mixed by Gabs Agostino at Chapel Lane. Adding their talents to the line-up are Tim Irrgang, percussionist with Unitopia and UPF, internationally renowned composer and multi-instrumentalist Adam Page on Saxophone and flute and Samurai of Prog front man Steve Unruh on Violin and flute.
