Well, this is not the classic Tim Buckley from the 70s, but this guy is a rollicking good country-rock performer with technique. The songs are an introspective recount of what a community is all about. T. Buckley, whose name is actually Tim, writes songs that are a collection of moments looking back on family life, community, lovers & those closest to us.
He’s quite good with a commanding vocal style. While it’s nothing earth-shaking or different per se this Buckley is potent troubadour, sophisticated & gutsy.
Frame By Frame (Drops Nov 5–Fallen Tree) is Tim’s 2nd CD & has sensitivity. On “Settlers’ Town,” there’s an atmosphere, lots of atmosphere rooted in a Steve Earle-John Mellencamp style. Tim’s voice is wholly his own with subtle support from Jesse Dollimont (guitar/piano/vocals/mandolin/acoustic guitar).
Tim, a Canadian award-winning songwriter performs with a soulful voice, & while others create songs out of thin air, apply a righteous melody & hope it appeals, Buckley, focuses on things more specifically from touching moments to dark truths.
He’s not as intense, deep & tragically romantic as Canada’s Leonard Cohen or humorous as the late John Prine, but why should he be? He’s found a niche that few mine.
