CITY STOP – Tim Harwill will play The Hideout on Feb. 23rd.

Tim Harwill makes a City stop on tour

Alberta native Tim Harwill will make a stop in Red Deer on his latest tour.

The tour will see him wandering from coast to coast in Canada throughout 2012 sharing original tunes and reinterpretations of country classics.

Harwill is set to perform a solo show at The Hideout on Feb. 23rd.

His solo show is really something to see as he not only performs vocally but adds in his electric and acoustic 12-string guitar and as well as his harmonica.

Harwill is just wrapping up post-production on his fifth studio release. The first single is due out spring and is a rendition of a tune made famous by The Man In Black so long ago.

After a decade on stages across North America, Harwill, also known as the 12-string troubadour released his first live concert recording on Nov. 2, 2011. Featuring a powerful collection of original classics Somethings Old, New, Borrowed & True: Tim Harwill Live @ Reba’s Cafe captures a solo acoustic performance that also includes his debut cover recordings as he interprets a pair of titles by American songwriting legends Steve Young and James Talley. Showcasing his distinctive vocal sound and passionate delivery, the digital recording reveals a performer with the ability to intimately engage with profound and personal lyrics while entertaining his audience with laughter, dignity and hope.

Harwill has been producing and recording music professionally for more than a decade. Countless miles spent wandering the road traveled less has established him as a songwriters favourite in Canada and the U.S.

Born into a large working poor family from the ridge country of the Manitoba Interlake district in west-central Canada, Harwill dreamed of a personal brand of countrified roots music before the on-set of adult life while at the feet of an assortment of his musical brethren. Hitting the road as a teen, lost years and countless miles of relentless touring have delivered a compelling live performer and critically acclaimed songwriter with an expansive catalogue of uplifting original Americana songs. Which the 12-string troubadour delivers with an astonishingly pure emotional commitment, unabashedly rooted in country music’s past while embracing the power of 21st century recording technology in order to demonstrate his commitment to a bold musical and philosophical ethos.

With a live performing style that evokes favourable comparison to the greats of the past, he defines the term ‘throwback’, while as producer he delivers an unerringly authentic recorded sound that holds to a unique and demanding creative vision.

Legendarily reclusive by nature, Harwill lives quietly in small-town Alberta in western Canada with canine traveling companion Koko when not on tour.
