"Making the first words count is something I learned as a writer. And as a reader or listener, it needs to grab me right away...this sounds great Tim Harrison...resonated with me right away...you created a visual word picture and I could see the scene with all three eyes...:}" Austin Moore.
"I agree with Austin, your lyricism immediately captures and has the listener picturing the scene. Beautiful song and arrangement. It has that vibe that makes it sound like a John Prine co-writes with Tom Waits feel. That being said, it is uniquely Tim and awesome. Get CBC on this one brother." Theo Massop
"Amazing. Lovely narrative. Great song. Guitars sound amazing. Excellent work Tim!"
I recorded this song which I wrote during my sojourn on Gabriola Island. It was inspired by the amazing jazz band that used to play in the village centre...Steve Smith, Dick Smith, Rick Cranston and the legendary Art Ellefson. The beautiful painting "Spring Thaw" is by my artist friend Kate Dee.
