Tim Ireland

It has been written of Tim Ireland’s songs that intimacy is their calling card. His cracked-honey voice delivers lyrics that are at once enigmatic and yet an arrow to uncomfortable truths. The songs are powered by artful arrangements running the gamut from sparsely adorned, folkish melancholia to the wielding of a harder edged dark energy. But invariably their beating heart is the wood, steel and skin of Ireland’s melodic, often fingerpicked acoustic guitar.
