Abraham Backfur


Dreary Lane is a hard-hitting, blues rock jam band. While certainly honoring the classic blues artists, Dreary Lane is also influenced by modern rock artists giving them an 'alternative' flavor to their signature blues sound.


By the time Lindsey Tims reached his 4th birthday, he had embarked on life's musical journey as a fiddler. He spent his youth as an accomplished musician, studying bluegrass and touring with The Tims Family Band. He shaped his individual sound however from soulful blues/jam guitarist like Rich Robinson, Warren Haynes, and Stevie Ray Vaughn. He arrived in Burlington, VT (via Wilmington, NC) in the fall of 2008 prepared to carve his own musical path. Teaming up with prolific Burlington, VT songwriters, Ian Ferris and Jim Bowen, the band is currently mixing their 2010 release.
