How do we get Timothy a big time opening gig?   The world needs to see and know of his talent.
I'm digging, digging deep in myself, but who needs a shovel when you have a little boy like mine.

We get a copy of Killdragon to Jim at a show Dr. dog style?

Once he gets signed I'm sure it will follow. I know he's been in talks with a bunch of labels (Saddle Creek and Nonesuch are two that I know of), so its inevitable. Don't know who he's going to end up with though.

I can fill it up with my salty tears.   

Those would both be nice labels eh?   I guess that would be for his next album or would they also market Killdragon at that point?   That whole process is interesting to me.

I guess they could re release killdragon. He's demoing for the new one now.

I overlooked this before.   In case you did too:

thanks Dave!  i think this writer's summary captures it perfectly:

"There is a heartbreaking reach that Showalter and Strand of Oaks gets to with all of his grief-stained and grounding lyrics - all of which read as long-harbored confessions and brilliant odes to the stumbles that have been made over the years."

and this:

"It's pretty heavy and yet, Showalter here summarizes it all with a spectacular folk song that will kill you in ways you didn't expect it to."

So cool for him!  :thumbsup:


It's the first of many cool things to happen for him and Strand of Oaks. I'm
pumped.  :) Gonna miss the frequent WB shows, but I'm thrilled.
