Tim Brickley is a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer who the Indianapolis Star calls a musical "local legend", and Nuvo Magazine calls a "pillar of the local music community." His newest album with his musical collective the Bleeding Hearts, "Everything that ever was.", was released on July 2, 2005, and features 13 exquistely-crafted tracks of early-70''s pop-craft inspired obsession. Brickley calls the album an "unabashed love letter to the songwriters and record-makers who first inspired." and as such, the albums lone cover is of the Ian Hunter/Mott The Hoople gem "I Wish I Was Your Mother." The rest of the album features songs by Brickley and NYC-based collaborator (and ex-Spin and Rolling Stone staffer) David Rheins.
