Timber Timbre

ARTIST / BAND: Timber Timbre

MP3: Demon Host

ALBUM: Timber Timbre

FILE UNDER: Folk / Blues

LABEL: Arts and Crafts

INFO: Timber Timbre stops you. The elements are deceptively simple: a confident, but hushed voice, understated guitar, strings and keyboard flourishes, and a subtle percussive beat. Taylor Kirk, the oneman show that is Timber Timbre, describes his music as "gothic rockabilly blues." His solo guitar, harmonica and looping pedals form a haunting resonance - a sound that is both raw and mystical. Over the course of two records (2006's Cedar Shakes and 2007'sMedicinals) and spellbinding performances in support of Great Lake Swimmers and Ohbijou, Kirk has earned a devout following. The years have marked a rapid progression from a dusty, low-fi bedroom blues to the sophisticated, cinematic studio work found on his newest self-titled record.
