    Rocketing from Melbourne's inner suburbs is Tin Alley comprising of Paul Siourthas (bass), Jim Siourthas (Vocals ,Guitar) and Peter Hofbauer (Drums).

    The last couple of years saw the band achieve some major milestones that started off by securing Australia wide distribution through MGM.

    Their first release through MGM, titled "In your hands", made the AIR charts on 2 separate occasions (16 first time on 20/8/2007 and 13 second time on 3/9/2007). JJJ and community radio stations including Syn FM, PBS and RRR also featured the song.

    The first of Tin Alley's national tours to support "In your hands" was cut short before it began in late 2007 when drummer, Peter Hofbauer, had a serious motorbike accident and at the age of 27 almost became a member of the "27 Club" himself - which is the theme of the band's current single "Out of Control".

    The 80km/h collision with a kangaroo left Peter in intensive care for three weeks and many months doing rehab. It was truly a gallant effort for him to resume drumming duties, with a smashed clavicle and a strapped up arm only months after the accident. Since the accident, Tin Alley have played two Australian tours to support their single releases, from Hobart to Brisbane, Adelaide to Byron and many places in between.

    In 2008 good fortune found the band when producer Stuart Stuart (Veronicas, Small Mercies) contacted the band via their MYSpace website and suggested that they record with him in Brisbane. The band duly attended at Stuart's studios and recorded what would be their most successful track to date "Out Of Control".

    With its roaring opening and lyrics that explore the excesses of youth, rock stardom and fame (particularly the infamous 27 Club so named after musicians who died at that age such as Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain), "Out Of Control" had an immediate impact on listeners around the country reaching number 1 on the AMO Charts (Australian Music Office), number 1 on the AIR Charts(Australian Independent Record Labels Association) for five weeks and no.7 on the ARIA Australian singles charts and in the process remaining in the ARIA Australian Singles Charts top 20 for six consecutive weeks at the end of 2009.

    "Out Of Control" received a new makeover early in 2010 when world renowned DJ/Producer Luke Chable made a special Verses version called Luke Chable Vs Tin Alley.

    In 2010 Tin Alley have already got a follow up scorcher entitled "Crossing Paths" inspired by and dedicated to Peter's brave efforts in dealing with and eventually overcoming the physical and mental injuries associated with his accident.
