Most music in todays mainstream is missing something vital. Passion is what music is supposed to be about. Its what is supposed to compel people to keep listening. Instead of singing songs about sex or how much money theyre pulling in on a weekly basis, people used to sing songs because it came from somewhere deep inside them. It was a passion they had to share with others. And their songs moved people, genuinely stirred something in their souls so strong that it could bring them to tears.
These are crucial elements to songwriting that Tim Tibbitts hasnt forgotten. His voice can silence a crowd- their anxious stirring and idle chatter turns into gaping mouths and wide, awed eyes as his words reverberate off the ceiling. Tibbitts has a passion in his voice that can astound his listeners. If people are unaffected by your music you aren't making good music. There's nothing more rewarding for an artist than to see your audience affected by what you're doing, Tim says. Even if it's a bad reaction, at least I know I've affected their life in some way.
Tim has set off on a solo musical journey. He bares his heart and soul completely on his new album, Portraits, showcasing not only his magical voice but his depth as a human. Tibbitts uses a beautiful duality of concepts when he creates his music. His melodies are catchy and upbeat with infectious hooks while his lyrics reveal a deeper level that can at times speak of an incredible sadness. That is what ultimately draws in the listener- that stirring of concordance inside your heart that says, Yeah- this guy gets it. I think the best example of this is You Got Me, Tim explains. It's so simple but it's so powerful in its angst and deep feelings of regret and loss that everyone just gets it.
Portraits features some of the best talent Canada has to offer including Tibbitts former band mates from Sandcastle Theory, Noel Webb on drums and Attila Toth on bass. Added to this mix is the incomparable Justin Abedin (JackSoul, Simon Wilcox) on electric guitar and Ron Lopata (JackSoul, Ashley MacIssac) on keyboards. Together they have created a sonically unsurpassed independent release produced by Tibbitts, Webb and Steve Hamilton that is bound to turn some heads.
Tims tireless efforts have not gone unrewarded. His song, Tell Me, was named Song of The Week on anti-industry.com and he was chosen from a score of entries to open for underground indie hero, Jimmy Gnecco of OURS. Tim is also currently entertaining Canadian and American labels and management offers for his new solo project.
Big things are in store for Tim Tibbitts just over the horizon. A brand new album and an international tour should bring a brand new following of fans that still know what it means to appreciate and love music for what its supposed to be: passionate, beautiful, stunning and with every bit of heart and soul one man can muster.
