There IS Love!

Chelsey Bellnier released her CD on December 5th, 2006. It includes a recording of my song, There Is Love. The recording features pedal-steel legend, John Hughey and a host of great musicians. Chelsey is only 15, and is an amazing talent at that age. You can listen to some clips from her CD at her website: http://www.chelseybellnier.com, and you can purchase her CD while you're there.

Make sure to leave her a note to tell her I sent you!

New Collaboration across the Atlantic

Diane Rulliere wrote an awesome lyric recently. Entitled "Speechless" I recently penned a melody that seemed to pour off the page of Diane's Lyric. I think you'll enjoy it. Check it out by clicking here.

Tsunami Relief Benefit:

Saturday, January 15th, I had the pleasure of performing some of my tunes at a benefit concert for the victims of the Indian Ocean Tsunami. I was in great company with Steve Naseef, Tiren Jhames and a phenomenal band who I will call "Soup". Brendan Marron on Bass, Brad Giamo on Drums, and Marc DuBois on Keys. Also playing with the band was Steve Naseef on Guitar and vocals, and Tiren Jhames on Percussion and Lead Guitar.

What a great time and we earned upwards of $1,500 to send to relief organizations working in the torn areas of the Indian Ocean. Thanks to all who came and supported our efforts. A special thanks to Marc, and Marty DuBois who graciously opened their home and fed 200+ people. It was a roaring success and we thoroughly enjoyed playing and singing for all who attended.

Rewrites:

Been in the studio and the word processor, reworking some tunes. Give a listen to The Real Me and Two Faces.

Collaboration Across the Atlantic

I have met many writers online over the past year. Two of them are Peter Simensky and John Howarth, both from Manchester, England. Peter is a drummer and John is a keyboardist. They had a band called the Meteors, back when, and opened for the Rolling Stones in their day.. What am I talking about.. this is their day.

Recently, I took one of John's melodies and wrote lyrics and sang the song named "Path That Leads To You" with John's Instrumentation. Its a unique result, that although I classified as Adult Contemporary, is actually very hard to classify. You be the judge.

I'll be meeting both John and Pete in Nashville the first week of April. Its going to be a blast!

Thanks,

Tim
