Unitopia is a musical adventure comprising the vocal and song writing skills of Mark Trueack, the production, song writing, keyboard & vocal skills of Sean Timms, the guitar & vocal prowess of Matt Williams, the combined drum/percussion batteries of Monty Ruggiero and Tim Irrgang and the remarkable multi-instrumentalism of Mike Stewart.
Unitopia endeavours to draw from the heart and soul of the listener, thought provoking topics such as environmental awareness, political and social upheaval, media misrepresentation, the hectic pace of life and human relationships in a positive and uplifting light. Using a progressive rock framework as a basis for Sean and Mark’s compositions, the pair quickly established a great writing rapport, extending the style to include elements of world, classical, heavy rock and dance.
Unitopia began when a mutual friend introduced Mark and Sean after realising the two had very similar musical tastes. In 1997 the duo began work on a track which was to become 'Take Good Care'. This formulated into a prolific and exciting song writing partnership culminating in the completion of their debut album 'More Than A Dream' in 2005.
Having a voice rich in character yet undeniably pleasing to the ear, has helped Mark pursue his passion for music & lyric writing. Slotting somewhere between Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Fish and Roger Waters, his powerful, compelling vocals give life to the far-reaching, socially conscious lyrics that are an integral part of Unitopia.
With a long and varied career in the music industry behind him, Sean applied all of his vast knowledge of different styles of music, technology and performance into one almighty work that covers everything from Rock to Classical, Ethnic to Dance and beyond.
Mark and Sean gathered together some of Australia's finest musicians and singers to contribute to the project, including conductor, arranger and composer Tim Sexton and the Adelaide Art Orchestra, thus ensuring the standard of playing on the CD is second to none. Add to the mix Sean's programming, mixing and arrangement skills and you have a top notch product that compares to any international release.
Unitopia are currently in the studio working on their follow up release to 'More Than A Dream' and playing live shows wherever innovative ground breaking music is to be found.
