"Minnesota CD says " I insist on being top 10""

So, a CD arrived in a recycled fiber case (hell yeah) last week that may be in my top 10 of the year – and I don't mean top 10 MN, I mean top 10 overall – yeah, that's right up there with "All Rebel Rockers" from Michael Franti. The thing is, I haven't put ANY thought into a top 10, but when I listened to this CD "top 10 of the year" popped into my mind – but, that will be a topic for another day.


I'm talking about the new collaboration from Timmy Haus with John Wilber, called Road Weary. Wow, gooooooood stuff.


An important thing to say right away is this album is NOTHING like All Rebel Rockers…which isn't a bad thing, I just don't want to suggest they sound the same.


Road Weary has both Timmy and John writing music, Timmy doing the majority, plus a number of interpreted pieces. John has the perfect "road weary" type voice, deep, gravelly and experienced – and Timmy can sing like a pro.


I think Timmy's songwriting shines on this album, especially the a cappella song Roots Down Deep, which has Harry Lange singing bass. There's also a new version of Drifting Blues, the song Timmy recorded back in the Friends of Yoder days, and played live for us on Centerstage Minnesota.


The album kicks off with a high energy and excellently produced version of Big Boss Man. The version of Talk to Your Daughter is also an outstanding track on this album – and Corn Bread, Peas, Black Molasses. It might be easier if I just say there isn't a song I dislike on the CD, and it's not even in my "fav genre," (whatever genre it is…folky blues?).


For a CD they put together for the ‘08 Bayfront Blues Fest in Duluth, they did an outstanding job, and I think it will stick in peoples minds for years to come – at least, if I have anything to say about it. I'll be playing it Thursday nights on Centerstage Minnesota on 91.7 KAXE, so be sure to tune in and enjoy! The album does leave me "wishing" there was more of both of them singing together, but wishing for more is a good sign.


Hopefully, we'll get Timmy back on the show sometime. I Sure am glad this is Centerstage MINNESOTA, because we've got some amazing musicians (which make my job easy :D).

Bio

I am a full time performing musician from Minnesota. I play from solo to 5 piece electric band and typically 3-5 shows per week. Regular venues include fine dining, bars and festivals and theater. Stylistically I draw from many genres, and have been told time and time again that it keeps my live shows interesting. Influences come from everywhere. A few of mine musically have been: Steve Earle, the Band, Garcia/Grisman, Dave Mathews, Waylon, and Cash. I have played thousands of shows at: large festivals, back yards, coffee shops, garages, theaters, and holes in the wall from MN to Alaska. My first recording release helped my band at the time, Friends of Yoder, to be voted the best band in Central MN by the St. Cloud Times two consecutive years. I am currently working on my third release. Please check my calendar to get an idea of where I play.
My music has been described as being good time, get down. I love what I do and live for doing it live.

I regularly sing for commercial radio jingles across the country, and am available for voice overs , radio, or advertising. Samples provided on request.
