The song-writing chemistry between Tania and James was explosive and their double platinum selling debut, “Waiting For The Day” won them the 1998 ARIA (The Australian equivalent of a Grammy) for Best Producer and put them on the unstoppable trajectory towards their second album, Dysfunctional (2002) which features hits including “I’m Just a Girl” & “Drowning Not Waving”. In 1999, with 4 ARIA Award nominations and the APRA Award for Song of The Year & PPCA most played song on Australian radio (Buses & Trains), Bachelor Girl rode high on the airwaves and the charts as their debut release spawned five smash hit singles including “Buses and Trains”, “Treat Me Good’’ and the anthemic Australian classic “Permission To Shine”.
