Experience Monsters & Myths through music during this Surrealist-inspired performance.
Featured on Jack White’s album Lazaretto, Nashville-based harpist and songwriter Timbre has been enchanting audiences throughout the United States and Europe in growing numbers with her unique brand of harp-fronted chamber-folk. Her career has caught the attention of the music world and led to her recording and collaborating with legends Tom Jones and Ricky Skaggs, and bands such as mewithoutYou, O’Brother, and The Chariot. The pairing of Timbre’s classically trained voice and harp skills with the dynamic sounds of her talented backing band have entranced crowd after crowd, often bringing complete stillness to bars and festivals and silencing audiences of thousands. With her creative and innovative bandmates Chris Leidhecker (drums) and Camille Faulkner (violin), Timbre creates lush soundscapes that pull in listeners of every background. Sometimes haunting, sometimes driving, sometimes unabashedly joyful, Timbre is a musical experience that is completely unique and compelling, reminding listeners that music can move us like nothing else can.
Hailed by earmilk.com as “a gorgeous tapestry of audible poetry,” Timbre’s newest album, Sun & Moon, paints vividly with the light, joy, and passion of modern music, and with the darkness, depth, and richness of classical music, showing that together they can communicate beauty in greater depths than either can alone. Timbre seeks to draw listeners into learning and experiencing the beauty of both worlds, hearing their unique languages, until a new dialect is formed.
