Here are some of the artists we are helping "Look for America"
A full integrated conventional and digital media promotion service for the independently minded musician.
The opening ‘Can You Feel It?” is very much in the vein of West Side Chicago blues great Magic Sam, a powerful performance that continues on from the blues approach of Tim’s debut set, “The Blues Sessions” for Earwig Records, though the majority of tracks here go far beyond strict blues parameters and many of the lyrics are nicely optimistic and hopeful. Originally from Western Pennsylvania, Tim learned acoustic guitar from Ernie Hawkins, frequently plays alongside George Frayne (who you may know better as Commander Cody) and was a founding member of The Mountain Jam Band, playing in an Allman Brothers and Grateful Dead style – all of these have left their mark here (many tracks recall the jam band approach), along with Tim’s original psychedelic blues leanings. Lend an ear to the heavy Jimmy Reed beat of the title track, the instrumental ‘Step’ which throws in tinges of Led Zeppelin, or the slow-ish, tough, crunching blues-rock of ‘Where Did She Go?’ So, alongside these blues-based performances are the spacey late 60s California rock sound of ‘Take A Minute’ and ‘Black Maria (which also has some blues interludes), the bright and breezy Grateful Dead inspired instrumental ‘Trixie’, the infectious rock and jazz flavoured funk instrumental of ‘TW Funk’ and the closing ‘Leave The Earth Alone’ with its echoes of 1967 – ‘69. Producer and Tim’s long-time friend, the under-rated Bobby Lee Rodgers also supplies guitar, bass, drums and keyboards, and the overall result is a nicely varied album, guaranteed to appeal to anyone with a fondness for the music of the late 60s and early 70s.
