Tim Young, Life Of A Song, 2015
The Tim Young Band had a feature here back in the early days of the blog, and last year Tim Young decided to try a different route. You know that saying that a good song will show itself, even if only singing it at home, playing a guitar? Well, that is kinda what Tim did. And presuming the saying is true, he is delivering good songs!
Actually the whole Life Of A Song cycle is made up of 5 EP’s with 4 or 5 songs each. See them them pictured on the side. With a total of 22 songs, this procedure makes sense. As a whole it is quite a lot to listen to. But when divided into 5 bits, each of them is easy to handle. Not really good with referencing this, but I guess somewhere between Johnny Cash, Neil Young and a dash of Elvis comes close. Mind you, all is recorded live in a studio with Tim’s voice, his guitar and occasional some effects on that guitar. That is it. So it all comes down to mood and lyrics and I think he pulled it off. As the EP’s progress, his singing seems to become more confident and despite the minimalistic approach it is easy to connect. Sometimes a voice and a guitar is all you need!
So there you go, maybe not for all day every day, but enough fine moments to enjoy when the company is good! The CD’s can be found at CDBaby and iTunes by the way.
“The track is a great mix of wonderful folky acoustic guitar with a rock edge from the fast playing and quick chord changes while the vocals have a wonderful sense of rhythm to them leading the song beautifully from verse to chorus and back again with the gravelly tone that runs throughout them giving them such a lovely quality in sound. 'Everything I Ever Wanted To Be' is taken from a new release which is due out early this year and will definitely be worthy of more than a few listens.”
“Tim Young Band’s ‘The Cost’ is the perfect summertime soundtrack. It feels best to listen to it while sitting in front of a campfire, surrounded by company but alone with your thoughts.”
“The Cost is a mellow classic rock album with strong songwriting and tight arrangements. It's not feel good music per se, but you'll feel good listening to it.”
High praise for Tim Young's NO STRANGER
