CD reviews for Dan Tyminski

Southern Gothic CD review - Southern Gothic
Dan Tyminski, known in this collection only as "Tyminski," tackles mainstream country music or what passes for it these days on "Southern Gothic." Tyminski seems an unlikely candidate for the world of FGL or Dan + Shay, but his new collection of songs has a lot to offer. Tyminski has an unassailable background as a player of bluegrass and mountain music, but "Southern Gothic" shows influence from the time he has spent in the world of EDM (electro-dance music). »»»
Wheels CD review - Wheels
Dan Tyminski, the "Man of Constant Sorrow," is a master of the mournful. In the eight years since his first solo release, "Carry Me Across the Mountain," Tyminski has toured with Alison Krauss on guitar and vocals and recorded with country artists such as Alan Jackson and Dolly Parton. He also found international recognition in the film "Oh Brother" and the subsequent tour. This project sticks close to the bluegrass genre, but also reflects a country influence. »»»
Carry Me Across The Mountain
Dan Tyminski is the guitarist/mandolin player with Alison Krauss and Union Station. Prior to AKUS, he was an integral part of the re-energizing of the bluegrass band, The Lonesome River Band in the early 1990's and earlier, a member of Vermont's Green Mountain Bluegrass. Though he's an in-demand session player and producer, this is his first solo effort. What a fine debut it is. Though firmly rooted in the bluegrass tradition, Tyminski has picked songs from some today's best bluegrass writers, »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: These Eagles keep songs alive and well – The newly reconfigured Eagles lineup, which now includes Vince Gill and Deacon Frey in place of the late Glenn Frey, hasn't changed its set much since this modified grouping's debut at Dodger Stadium in 2017. Don Henley announced from the outset, though, how the group continues to tour primarily so it can keep the Eagles' many great songs alive.... »»»
Concert Review: Lovett could not have scripted it any better – Cerritos is a fair distance from Hollywood, but Lyle Lovett, who has accumulated a long list of acting credits, sometimes seemed like he was giving a company town performance this night. Maybe it was because Paul Reiser, the "Mad About You" star, introduced Lovett with a funny bit about what some of the man's songs mean (or don't mean).... »»»

Washburn, Fleck create "Echoes" Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn have powerhouse individual talents; each has followed an estimable career path to where they find themselves today: making complex, but spare, records, writing music together and touring with their son Juno.

Not one to rest on his laurels, Willie Nelson's second studio release of the calendar year finds the artist dipping back into the Great American Songbook.
