His songs draw from experience and demonstrate empathy and passion in endless supply. The characters jump to life in your imagination as he speaks for them in song.
Tim talked a lot about his history as a musician and how lucky he feels to be out singing his songs for people. One thing he said that really resonated with me was, "To set a goal and pull it off is a fun and empowering thing. Don't be afraid to die. Be afraid not to live."
Here are the songs he played, as best as I kept track of them. I'm eternally thankful to artists whose lyrics are Google-able.
Check out the lyrics of the song "Dog Bumped". It was one hell of a song to start out with. He delivered it with less of a country feel and a much more impassioned delivery that amped up the message immensely.
"No News from North"
Up next was another massively heavy story in the form of "Solid Gone"
"Walk 500 Miles"
"Older and Poorer"
"Church Of Level Track"
As many artists I've seen lately like to do, Tim said, "Fuck it!" and got down on the Lee's Palace dancefloor to get closer to the crowd. He played "Exit Wounds" before getting back up on the stage.
Then came a song written while Tim was living in a shed,"Thing Of The Past"
Tim closed out with "Avoiding Catatonic Surrender"
