Dan Tyminski shoots video for "Wheels"

Thursday, July 17, 2008 – Dan Tyminski, who just released his bluegrass album "Wheels" last month, shot a video for the title track.

The video, directed by Rocky Schenck, who co-produced with Brad Paul, was shot on The Sierra Hotel train car on June 10 -11 in California. The Sierra Hotel car was part of the California Zephyr line that ran from Chicago to Los Angeles from 1948 to 1983. The car was then purchased privately and completely restored and customized. The producers of the video chartered the car and had it attached to the Amtrak Coast Starlight train (which runs from Seattle to Los Angeles) in Oakland and shot the video during the journey south to Los Angeles and back to Oakland the next day. "Wheels" features grand iconic scenery, informal performances and humorous vignettes about the band finding ways to stay entertained while on the road. P>The video is being added on GAC Tuesday, July 22 and is currently in heavy rotation on CMT Pure. P>Tyminski also is touring behind the CD. Tour dates are:
July 19 Cleveland, TN White Oak Mountain Bluegrass Festival

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: Evans brings the cheer – What's a country song without drinking? Morgan Evans seems to have gotten the missive loud and clear as a good chunk of his songs incorporate libations into the mix.

Concert Review: Lambert smiles, dances the night away – Miranda Lambert didn't perform "Tin Man," one of her best, but also one of her saddest songs during this Wildcard tour stop. It's a song sung from the perspective of one who is sad that she has a heart that can be broken. That's not the current condition of Lambert's heart, though. She's apparently in a good... »»»

Nightfall CD review - Nightfall
Little Big Town gets billed as a country music vocal group, but "Nightfall" plays out more like a four-headed singer-songwriter effort. Many of these songs hearken back to some of the best '70s introspective songwriter efforts. »»»
