Tim Young, Life Of A Song, 2015

tim young - live life of a songThe 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.
