2010 - Tim Knol [album]
2010 - Silverman Hotel [single]



2009 was certainly no ordinary year for Tim Knol...

The twenty year old busied himself supporting the late, great Dutch rock band Johan on their final tour, as well as recording his (self titled) d├ębut album. You might think that would be quite enough for anyone to take in, but Knol reaped the rewards of his hard work in the studio almost immediately, via a splurge of gushing reviews from the Dutch press in January 2010. Trendsetting newspaper De Volkskrant, in an almost unprecedented move, awarded the LP five stars. On the back of this, "Tim Knol" entered at the Dutch album top 100 at #12.

There are plenty of singer-songwriters about at the moment, and you might wonder at how the pop community can find room for another troubadour... What sets Tim apart from all the others is twofold: a truly unique voice, coupled with a heartfelt, passionate delivery is one. You can also tick off a talent for writing ridiculously catchy melodies blessed with clever arrangements. Imagine if Gram Parsons lent a helping hand on "After the Goldrush", and you've got a measure of what the lad is trying to achieve with his sound. But Knol is very far from being a clever stylist; his music is personal and demands your attention.
