Tim Barry, yes, the singer from Avail's second solo release. 10 fantastic modern day folk songs. On Suburban Home Records.
Tim's solo career has been marked with a decidedly melancholy edge, even in the upbeat songs. Yet, this element is what is the crucial part of his songs. While the songs could become despair riddled and miserable country dirges instead the songs usually try to turn a bad situation into a positive. This is that touch of Avail in his songs. Otherwise, These songs are for fans of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings or Willie Nelson...but ultimately, they're a little moodier than anything those gentlemen typically recorded, save of course the American Recordings by Johnny Cash. These songs are amazing and you should check them out, you will not be disappointed.
