Music Career

Powderfinger era

In 1989, while at TAFE, Fanning met fellow musician Ian Haug who was the guitarist and singer of the group Powderfinger. After Haug discovered that Fanning was also a musician, he invited Fanning to join the band. Initially as the backing vocalist, Haug identified that Fanning would be more suited as the group's lead vocalist and exchanged roles. Also during the early time of the band, Fanning invited his old school friend Darren Middleton to join the band also.

In October 2005, through Dew Process, a Universal Records company headed up by Powderfinger's manager, Fanning released his debut solo album entitled Tea and Sympathy which debuted at #1 on the Australian ARIA Albums chart.
