According to Powderfinger vocalist Bernard Fanning, his debut solo album "Tea and Sympathy" (Dew Process/Universal Music) "was just supposed to be my holiday project." It may have been a diversion from his day job with one of Australia's biggest rock acts, but Fanning's "holiday" has paid dividends. Dew Process says the album has shipped 340,000 units in Australia, and on Sept. 13 Fanning collected five nominations for the Australian Recording Industry Assn. Awards, taking place Oct. 29 in Sydney.
