"CD Review TIME"

The four fortysomething members of Avon Lake's Time have played together since they were 16. Their camaraderie comes through on their self-titled debut, which sounds exactly like you'd expect a record made by guys raised on classic rock would sound. On the opening "Kissing You Goodbye," frontman Tom Coffin channels Cheap Trick's Robin Zander and Southside Johnny. And the blaring saxophone of the album's first half recalls '80s-era Springsteen. But Time's closing, "Let the Lady Win a Hand," goes for something more epic, evoking the Band but never quite hitting its mark. In between, warbling vocals, demented lyrics, and prickly guitars suggest that this group of middle-aged businessmen may be harboring a fiery punk spirit. — Jeff Niesel - Cleveland Scene magazine

We were all brought up in a musical families. It was only natural that we would fall in love with music and the rush of performing in front of a live audience.

Many influences can be heard in TIME's music from Glam Rock, Punk, Classic Rock, Classical, Funk, and a bit of Jazz. Our strongest influences include; David Bowie, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, T-Rex, The Sex Pistols, Carole King, and The Stones.

The four original members; Tom Coffin, Chris Phillips, Mike Hazey, and Joe Rieg have played together since the age of 16. Rod Mapes was added to the band during the recording of the CD and is now an intra-cal part of TIME. Additional Bass duties were handled by Gil Singer who joins TIME for live gigs.

Musically TIME has a sense of Classic Rock feel with power ballads and straight ahead rock songs. They also provide some interesting takes on "House" and "Funk" in their upcoming CD.
