CD reviews for Dan Tyminski

Southern Gothic CD review - Southern Gothic
Dan Tyminski, known in this collection only as "Tyminski," tackles mainstream country music or what passes for it these days on "Southern Gothic." Tyminski seems an unlikely candidate for the world of FGL or Dan + Shay, but his new collection of songs has a lot to offer. Tyminski has an unassailable background as a player of bluegrass and mountain music, but "Southern Gothic" shows influence from the time he has spent in the world of EDM (electro-dance music). »»»
Wheels CD review - Wheels
Dan Tyminski, the "Man of Constant Sorrow," is a master of the mournful. In the eight years since his first solo release, "Carry Me Across the Mountain," Tyminski has toured with Alison Krauss on guitar and vocals and recorded with country artists such as Alan Jackson and Dolly Parton. He also found international recognition in the film "Oh Brother" and the subsequent tour. This project sticks close to the bluegrass genre, but also reflects a country influence. »»»

Though firmly rooted in the bluegrass tradition, Tyminski has picked songs from some today's best bluegrass writers, »»»

These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: The Lil Smokies provide the perfect antidote – On a night when the world to be falling further apart thanks to coronavirus (this would be the night the NBA postponed the season), there stood The Lil Smokies to at least in some small measure save the day.

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia. But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
