Timber Timbre: “Black Water”
Timber Timbre’s Taylor Kirk belongs to that long list of Canadian songwriters who have mastered the sound and feel of Americana despite living north of the border. His group just released their fourth album, titled Creep On Creepin’ On, and the record does American better than most American contemporaries can.
Timber Timbre’s sound perches at the intersection of folk, blues, and soul, but it’s built up through a dark, almost swampy energy and an added touch of Canadian coldness. The Toronto-based trio favors simple arrangements with minimal instrumentation, giving plenty of room for the songs to breathe and really sink in. Kirk’s lonesome voice is always front-and-center, weaving dark tales about sinners, saints, and everyone in between.
Today’s song of the day comes from Timber Timbre’s new album. Take a listen to “Black Water” below.
