Artist Spotlight : Tim Carr

Tim Carr, Los Angeles based singer, composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist creates music in a stunning mix of instrumental interludes, and minimal folkesque songs inspired by African rhythms, melodies of the French Romantics and 60s pop.

Raised in Marin County, Northern California, Carr was surrounded by a family of musicians. At an early age he immersed himself into music and studied Jazz drums at the prestigious California Institute of the Arts. After graduating with a BFA, Carr soon began working with notable acts including HAIM, Julian Casablancas and Nick Cave, to name a few. His time with the band The Americans saw him performing on Letterman, recording with T Bone Burnett, as well as being featured in the Emmy-nominated documentary ‘American Epic’, which was produced by T Bone Burnett, Jack White and Robert Redford.

Carr’s highly anticipated upcoming EP Swing & Turn, is the follow up to his 2016 release The Last Day of Fighting, which found success being featured on Robert Redford’s ‘Watershed’ soundtrack, alongside the likes of Beck and Thom Yorke. Swing & Turn is titled after the feeling of movement, like a dance between intimacy and independence, which is also a common theme in the music. Having mixed, produced and engineered the five track release himself, Swing & Turn is the perfect balance of dissonance and consonance, with unexpected swelling harmonies, lilting rhythms and minimalist pop.

Leading single ‘Take Me There’ is a compelling tale touching on the desire to escape apathy, highlighting the need to either let go and fully love or let go of a love. Carr expresses this poetic melancholy through his raw and understated tones, emitting the purest of expressions. His use of delicate instrumentation, ethereal vocal harmonies and graceful melodies, succeeds in crafting a poignant yet beautiful song.

Long Enough Along For The Ride’ showcases Carr’s complex arrangements and variety of unique tones. Focusing on the emotions of anxiety when making a decision and the fear of commitment and separation, the song narrates a feeling that is entirely relatable. This track highlights Carr’s conscious decision to leave imperfections during the recording process, adding a looseness and raw energy to the music. “I like when there is a brokenness mixed with a sweet melody”, reveals Carr.

With his desire to inspire creativity, experimentation and individuality, Carr is delivering audiences with moments of escapism. Swing & Turn is set for release summer 2018.
