Canadian songwriter Tim Mann catapults onto the scene with his debut full length album, The Dream Is Ended, This Is The Morning. For all of the non-Narnia nerds out there, many fans of CS Lewis’ classic books will recognize this quote from The Last Battle. The quote following this phrase, I believe sums up the goal of this album quite well: “And as he spoke, he no longer looked to them like a lion; but the things that began to happen after that were so great and beautiful that I cannot write them. . . .” Beauty and transformation is what this album aims for and I would say that it is accomplished.

The album kicks off with the ethereal, Ian McIntosh-esque, Where We Lay Our Scene. With the humming synthesizer and plucking guitar, the song sets the tone of the album impeccably. The vertical lyrics and relaxed vocals by Mann are simple, yet elegant. This characteristic is echoed on tracks like, Stronger, You Are Mighty To Save (no, this is not a Hillsong cover), Oh The Love, the anthemic Oh God, Our Refuge and the prayerful, guitar laden, Wont You Please Come Home (For The Lost and Broken).

There are some brief foot stomping, hand clapping moments on the record incarnated in Our Hope Is Real and Great Is The Lord, both of which I can imagine being played in churches and youth groups for their rousing and focused lyrics and rhythms that welcome the aforementioned hand clapping and foot stomping.

The Dream Is Ended, This Is The Morning maintains an atmosphere of genuine worship about it that it is hard to ignore. With a little growth in the songwriting department; ditching the occasional tried and true sentiment for unique mantras, Tim Mann will stand among the likes of Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman and Tim Hughes as a powerhouse worship fixture.

For an independent debut, The Dream Is Ended, This Is The Morning, is impressive and should draw the attention of record labels and listeners alike. You can buy the album on the USA iTunes store here, or check out his Bandcamp page here. - The Christian Manifesto

Reviewed by Anthony Peronto

Worship music is a diverse “genre.” As a whole is about praising the Lord. But the choice of musical style to accomplish this is an entirely different story. It can range from the accessible and overdone contemporary to the experimental and edgy of the alternative. But what if you take a little bit of both, throw it in a blender, pulsate, and offer as a solo project, you would probably get a man named Tim Mann. Since I’ve never heard of this guy, on first listen, I was unsure of what I would hear.

The two comparisons I could make would be The Glorious Unseen and Hillsong United. I know they’re completely different groups, but Tim manages to take the ambience and simplicity of the former and bring it together with the catchiness and accessibility of the latter. To be honest though, the songs I found myself enjoying were the slower, acoustic, and ambient songs such as “Oh God, Our Refuge,” “You Are Mighty To Save,” and “Oh The Love.”

While it doesn’t possess the most mind-blowing lyrics, the simplicity of it all is still welcomed by me. The only problem was the faster song’s typical sound, however, Tim Mann created a nice ambient and worshipful album. I feel there’s a bright future ahead for this guy and I’m anxious to hear what else he’s got in store.

We have been so lucky at LTTM over the last year to be sent e-mails from artist telling us about their latest album release, and what we have found over the year is how many great creative songwriters there are out there. So it is a privilege for me to introduce you to Mr Tim Mann.

Tim is a worship leader from Canada, after he left school he traveled to Scotland to spend a year doing worship and youth ministry at a church in Aberdeen. He then enrolled in the Hillsong College in Australia and spent a year in Sydney in the Worship and Creative Arts Program. Returning to Canada Tim released his debut EP 'forweallhaveapart' in 2009 and is now releasing his latest offering 'The Dream is Ended; This is The Morning'.

The album starts in a very bizarre way to most worship albums, usually worship albums kick in with big drums or a big riff, yet this album starts with an atmospheric riff and Tim singing out praises to God, pure brilliance. The album then kicks into life with the rocking praise song Our Hope Is Real and if you like your worship music from bands like Yfriday this will be your kind of song. Moving on to other tracks, I love the simplicity of the song Stronger, Tim shows us the creative side of his songwriting in this song which has a similar feel and sound to the Scottish band Superhero.

Tim is at his strongest as a songwriter and singer during the reflected slower intimate worship songs on this album. He doesn't rush his songs or try to catch your attention with big riffs and big drums, he lets the music talk for itself. A lot of songs on this album are aloud to build slowly into a crescendo of powerful music. The perfect example of this is the amazing Oh God Our Refuge and also Glory To God, both songs being over 6 minutes long, and both slowly building into worshipful moments that will take your breath away. Oh God Our Refuge is a track you have to hear and by the end I'm sure you will be hands up in air singing along, praising our God.

You can hear Tim's influences coming through the album, he names Weezer, Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, Jeff Buckley and Oasis as some of his early influences, yet at the same time Tim has his own style that you could only describe as Tim's sound.

One song that is truly remarkable is the simplistic Won't You Please Come Home, there isn't much to this song lyrically, just an out pouring in the repeated cry of "Won't You Please Come Home". There is beauty in the simplicity of this song, pure genius.

A wonderful worship album, lyrically all the songs are usable in your local church, yet this isn't just another worship album with a different singer playing the same old chords that comfortably work, this is Tim playing songs he would use in his times of worship and thankfully he has given them to us as a tool to be used in our praises to God.

A lot of songs on this album are aloud to build slowly into a crescendo of powerful music. The perfect example of this is the amazing Oh God Our Refuge and also Glory To God, both songs being over 6 minutes long, and both slowly building into worshipful moments that will take your breath away. Oh God Our Refuge is a track you have to hear and by the end I'm sure you will be hands up in air singing along, praising our God.

You can hear Tim's influences coming through the album, he names Weezer, Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, Jeff Buckley and Oasis as some of his early influences, yet at the same time Tim has his own style that you could only describe as Tim's sound.

One song that is truly remarkable is the simplistic Won't You Please Come Home, there isn't much to this song lyrically, just an out pouring in the repeated cry of "Won't You Please Come Home". There is beauty in the simplicity of this song, pure genius.

A wonderful worship album, lyrically all the songs are usable in your local church, yet this isn't just another worship album with a different singer playing the same old chords that comfortably work, this is Tim playing songs he would use in his times of worship and thankfully he has given them to us as a tool to be used in our praises to God.

Won't You Please Come Home - Louder Than The Music


We have been so lucky at LTTM over the last year to be sent e-mails from artist telling us about their latest album release, and what we have found over the year is how many great creative songwriters there are out there. So it is a privilege for me to introduce you to Mr Tim Mann.

Tim is a worship leader from Canada, after he left school he traveled to Scotland to spend a year doing worship and youth ministry at a church in Aberdeen. He then enrolled in the Hillsong College in Australia and spent a year in Sydney in the Worship and Creative Arts Program. Returning to Canada Tim released his debut EP 'forweallhaveapart' in 2009 and is now releasing his latest offering 'The Dream is Ended; This is The Morning'.

The album starts in a very bizarre way to most worship albums, usually worship albums kick in with big drums or a big riff, yet this album starts with an atmospheric riff and Tim singing out praises to God, pure brilliance. The album then kicks into life with the rocking praise song Our Hope Is Real and if you like your worship music from bands like Yfriday this will be your kind of song. Moving on to other tracks, I love the simplicity of the song Stronger, Tim shows us the creative side of his songwriting in this song which has a similar feel and sound to the Scottish band Superhero.

Bio

Tim Mann is a dynamic worship leader, committed to seeking out the heart of God through music and song. Tim pursued his love for music from a young age, and after high school graduation, he travelled to Scotland for a year to do worship and youth ministry in a church in Aberdeen. When he returned, Tim decided to enroll in the then-obscure Hillsong College in Australia. He spent one year in Sydney in the Worship and Creative Arts program at the college.

Returning to Canada, Tim spent the next few years volunteering in churches with their youth and worship ministries, and traveled throughout the province leading worship. Tim’s desire to truly begin to step into the worship calling on his life led him to follow his heart in 2009 when he self-recorded his debut EP: “forweallhaveapart.” This album, released in November, did not satiate his soul for long: he began making plans to take further steps to record a full length album. In July 2010, Tim recorded “The Dream is Ended; This is The Morning”, set to be released in September 2010.

Behind Tim Mann’s music you hear his heart: a steady and obvious heart beat that longs to know the heart of God. Song-writing goes beyond Tim just choosing to express his creativity. It is the way he knows how to communicate what God has done and is doing through him. Tim’s foremost desire is to release worship that changes lives, hearts, and the spiritual climate. His firm belief is that worship after God’s heart can change the atmosphere and the nation.

Tim’s first full-length record, “The Dream is Ended; This is The Morning”, is a faithful step towards what God has purposed for Tim’s life. The album title is a unique pull from a CS Lewis classic. In the final pages of The Last Battle, Lewis writes, “The term is over; the holidays have begun. The dream is ended; this is the morning.” In context, the quotation can be interpreted as to how real and beautiful heaven will be compared to what we experience in the here and now: our present reality. To Tim, it also speaks of the fact that when you give your life to Christ, your old life feels like a dream and your new life in Him feels like you have woken up. When you encounter the redemptive power of the cross, you view life so differently that the old one feels as far away as a dream. Your new life is present and real.

Tim’s hope is that his music glorifies God and inspires Christ followers to start living for God like it really matters. He desires to affect change in those who know Christ, and that his music also draws others to a real knowledge of Christ: that their dream would end, and morning would come.
