Timothy Guy Gerard Powles (born 21 December 1959) is a music producer and artist originally from New Zealand, and though now an Australian resident, he is of English/Irish descent. Also known as timEbandit Powles, his main instrument and first love was the drum kit and tuned percussion. In the 70's he won a scholarship to join the New Zealand Youth Orchestra in a training camp in Cambridge. This mixed interest in classical and rock orchestrations and ambience has continued throughout his career, and was instrumental in his becoming the drummer with the Australian-formed band The Church, with whom he was inducted into th ARIA Hall Of FAME in October 2010, coinciding with the band's 30th year anniversary celebrations and touring. He started working with the band in 1994, with the album Sometime Anywhere (though he was misidentified as Tim Powell on the liner notes). He became a permanent member of the band in the year following, and has worked on all of their many releases since then, as a musician and composer, and taking production responsibilities on all levels, a highlight being co-directing and co-producing "A Pyschedelic Symphony"- the church and the George Ellis Orchestra at the Sydney Opera House, a sold-out show in April 2011. Powles resides in Sydney, Australia and has his own recording studio, the current version is called Spacejunk III.
