Tim Grimm – Wilderness Songs and Bad Man Ballads (CD)


Haunting songs about a cast of characters from the Ohio Valley frontier, inspired by the books of Scott Russell Sanders


The songs, based on the writings of Tim Grimm’s friend, Scott Russell Sanders, become a showcase for the storyteller, sharing his ability to pair his words with music that lopes, twists, twangs and is full of mystery. The people in many of these stories are from another time but their messages are true today; individuals struggling with personal demons and lives that are dealt a raw deal, yet still harboring hope.

“And there is no one better that Grimm when writing music that is about Indiana, and about life. It may, compilation or not, be the best roots album of 2011” (Americana-uk.com)
