This album is an acoustic outing, featuring Tim playing nylon string guitar. This recording is the definition of "no frills". It''s just a room, a microphone, and a guitar. Four out of the six songs on this little EP were penned by Tim and the other two are stabs at two beautiful pieces of classical guitar repertoire from two of the masters of classical guitar Leo Brouwer and Heitor Villa Lobos. This is not an album of virtuosic references, more of just a relaxing reminder that can be put on softly in the background when preparing dinner, playing board games on rainy nights, or as early Saturday morning shower music.
Tim hails from the gorgeous slice of Erie County known as Buffalo. he now resides in Brooklyn. he has been in many different types of bands over the years and shared the stage with many beautiful musicians in the process. to name a few : Jon Nelson''s Genkin Philharmonic, Butch Morris''s Orchestra Slang, Beyondo, Zozo Afrobeat, Kenny Wolleson & Himalayas, Mike Gordon (phish), Brazilian Girls, Fred''s Slacks, The Operatives, Anal Pudding, Rhubarb, Lazlo Hollyfeld and Thought. Recently tim has formed his own band, Hylofi, featuring members of his own favorite bands: Jerseyband, Beyondo, Zozo Afrobeat, Naked Brunch, and yes of course Thought. Think industrial/samba/funk with 5 horns and a bunch of random precussion instruments like shekere, cabasa, claves, bells, whistles, and fire extinguishers.
