Roger Loves Betty is the collective musical home of Jodi Phillis and Tim Oxley.
Tim and Jodi became friends at Mambo Graphics in Alexandria, Sydney, where they both worked in the late 80's. They played in separate bands in Sydney's inner west and eventually discovered their mutual love of harmony singing, elaborate melodies and meaningful lyrics. When they weren't busy recording and touring with their other bands, (Jodi in The Clouds and Tim in The Verys), they sang and played on each others solo albums, played gigs together, then formed The Dearhunters in 1999, releasing one album, Red Wine and Blue which was loved by music critics and fans alike.
It wasn't until 2001 that they fell in love, got married and got domestic, with two daughters and a recording studio, (The Kitchen Recording House) in their home. It was a foregone conclusion that they form a totally collaborative identity, which is how Roger Loves Betty came to be. Roger Loves Betty have released two independent albums, Let Love Begin and Circle Suckers and Bubblestars.
Most recently, Tim produced Jodi’s 5th solo album, Becoming.
