Wes Carr from Bondi, New South Wales was the winner of Australian Idol (season 6). Born in Adelaide, South Australia, Carr moved to Sydney as a 15-year-old. Before he auditioned for Australian Idol, Carr performed and had regular resident gigs around Sydney. During 2004 Carr fronted the band Tambalane - a side project of Silverchair drummer Ben Gillies - and co-wrote their debut self-titled album. Tambalane parted ways at the end of 2005.
