Buenos Noches Nacogdoches Songs
What if Billy Joel or Elton John had been born in Texas? Or best yet, what if Townes Van Zandt or Robert Earl Keen played piana? 2Take Tim doesn't play soft; he plays PIANA. And he does it damn well!
"If this Buenos Noches Nacogdoches CD were a tree, what kind of tree would it be? Well hell, don't ask me.....but if it fell in a forest and no one heard it, I'd a' missed the best CD I've heard all year!"

Tim is a real, authenticated Texas singer-songwriter, although he's spent a good deal of time in New Orleans, playing with Dave Sharp & The Hard Travelers and as a solo artist. He didn't leave his heart there. He actually FOUND it there, pulsing with the beat of Satchmo, Zydeco, The Meters and that old Gris-Gris, and buzzing like a hundred neon signs or, if you prefer, a hundred drunks on Bourbon Street. The Great Adventure of...took our boy from the 504 (as the homeboys call it) on a MUSICAL trip to Ireland and back into his beloved Lone Star State. Texas is where he once- not too long ago- owned and managed a Music Hall. He also started his first band, Rise & Run, there. He reckons that on most days, he'd rather be in Austin.
Tim is of the opinion that the music should do the talking, but here are a few more facts that the music may or may not divulge: He was born 13 days before the JFK assassination, which makes him a Scorpio. He and his wife LEELA are the proud parents of MOLLY GRACE, who was born on the First Day of Spring, 2001. He loves Sushi and a pint (or two) of Guinness. His favorite CDs include Moby's "PLAY" and David Gray's "WHITE LADDER." Oh...and don't forget Elvis Costello's "IMPERIAL BEDROOM"....(Not to mention is prized Dylan bootleg collection! SHHHH!) Favorite film: O Brother, Where Art Thou? Favorite writers: W.B. Yeats and Flannery O'Connor. Favorite shirt: STOP READING MY SHIRT. Favorite saying: "I'll sleep in the ambulance on the way to the hospital."
