Cafe ~ FREE
“Tim Gartland brings discipline and an understated verve to his harmonica work…that well-deep singing voice (is) a combination of Charlie Musslewhite, Leon Russell and Willie Dixon…as a songwriter, he has a good sense of melody and provides intelligent lyrics…”
Tim Gartland is a singer-songwriter and master harmonica player committed to honoring the rich tradition of blues while moving the genre forward. His release If You Want A Good Woman features 12 original songs and reached #1 on the blues radio charts on AirPlay Direct. It was also named a Top Pick of the year by Bill Wilson of the Nashville Blues Society and reached #13 on the national blues charts according to Roots Time Radio.
His original music is a blend of Chicago blues, soul, and Americana.
Satisfied, his long-awaited fourth album, recorded at Nashville's Rock House, features a number of Nashville’s top session players.
Among the great early reviews, this comment from Reflections in Blue: Gartland, armed with his velvety smooth voice, understated harmonica and the ability and willingness to bare his soul in song, make him one of the most significant artists in the world of roots/blues music today...Satisfied should be required listening for anyone hoping to make a mark in the fields of blues and roots music.
Satisfied is available at Amazon, iTunes, Spotify and most other streaming formats.
Prior to Satisfied, Tim released two critically acclaimed original albums: Looking Into The Sun (2011) and Million Stars (2014). In 2015, he released The Willie Project, a heartfelt homage to the songwriting of the legendary blues hall of famer Willie Dixon.
