Tim Cheesebrow Album Release
April 20 @ 7:00 pm$20
The Well Traveled Unknown is Tim’s sixth solo album release. The songs in this collection focus on his personal struggles and aspirations as a young parent and artist trying to remain positive in the face of depression and the influence of an increasingly strange and divided world.
April 20th, 2019 – 6PM (cocktail hour) 7PM Performance
MN composer Tim Cheesebrow is teaming up with ArtWorks Eagan, an artist-run non-profit that hosts creation space, galleries, educational events, performances and highlights local artists in any discipline.
During the performance attendees will witness the creation of a piece of original art influenced by the music being played. Artist Amy Vasterling has agreed to be recorded on video making a painting, which will be live-streamed to the concert hall and projected onto the stage so attendees can see how the music influences and changes her artistic process and choices.
In the end all will have all participated in a massive creative endeavor and everyone who attends the show will leave with a CD of the music and will be mailed an archival quality print of the finished artwork, all ready to be framed and hung in their home!
“It’s hard to not be happy when you’re listening to Tim Cheesebrow–and easy to remember the things that matter most.”
– Peter Mayer
He took the stage in his first performance wearing a shiny blue shirt and top hat, belting some Tom Petty song under the big lights for all he was worth…after feeling that rush there was no going back. Tim started writing songs at 15 as a way to make sense of the world. He studied the craft in earnest while getting his degree in classical music composition, and cemented his style while volunteering at a monastery and school near New Orleans. 20 years later and he’s still at it, playing over 120 shows per year. He now has six full-length solo albums under his belt, a published book on songwriting, and is showing no signs of slowing down.
Tim’s music layers an eclectic mix of styles to create a sound with modern grooves, catchy melodies, and a sense of being grounded in deep roots. He’s known for his percussive guitar work, capo-wizardry, and an expressive voice big enough to fill any room.
Tim’s lyrics are heartfelt and honest, bringing audiences with him to explore concepts of family, self-doubt, depression, hope, grief, and the many facets of love. He looks to music as a source of healing and puts that magic to work at each performance so listeners leave with more than they expected to find. Tim’s calm and passionate presence, combined with his thoughtful songcraft, make him a favorite of intimate listening rooms.
Tim is the author of Songwriting for Wellness: Using Music to Heal the Mind
