Tim Isberg – a listening recommendation

Tim Isberg

What is your latest release and what type of music is it? Latest record is full length album released Oct 2015 Tears Along The Road, produced by JUNO winner Miles Wilkinson. It is an Alt-Country blend of Americana and contemporary Folk. The CD was selected by Music Canada in their top 25 favourite albums (all genres) produced in Canada in 2015.

Quick description of the songs: Tears Along The Road is a first fully produced CD, following a 2005 underground CD Coming Home. Live shows are an occasion to personally engage the audience with genuine stories and original songs of a ‘singer-songwriter-soldier’, and sometimes an eclectic mix of covers spanning rock, blues and roots and even celtic genres. Too many influences to mention, but songs are in stylings of Rodney Crowell, Lennie Gallant, Ryan Adams, Blue Rodeo and JJ Cale.

Brief biography:
Originally from southern Alberta, veteran soldier Tim Isberg is an accomplished singer-songwriter who is emerging in the performance scene after a lengthy hiatus from music to serve in the Canadian Army.

From Rwanda to Afghanistan, Tim experienced the challenges of living and working in different cultures and conflicts, and amid the best and worst humanity has to offer. As a performer, he has entertained audiences in many corners of the world, including a recent 10-concert international tour in 2016.

Tim is a story-teller who brings well crafted songs to the stage and a unique and endearing array of life experiences he shares in a way that makes each listener feel connected.

Nominated for 2016 ACMA Male Artist of the Year, Tim’s album Tears Along The Road was released in October 2015 and recorded with celebrated JUNO award-winning producer-engineer Miles Wilkinson and selected by Music Canada as one of the Top 25 Favourite Albums of 2015.

Tim performs solo, duo, and often with his full band consisting of Blaine Doherty on guitar, Dean Pierno on percussion, Kim Lesaca on bass, and additional guests on pedal steel or violin.
