This week I am going back in time a bit and listening to an artist I have heard in many different bands, but never on his own… until now.
His guitar and mandolin playing exude maximum tone and control. His voice… goodness gracious his voice has it all the grit, the slickness, and the ability to adapt to serve the song.
Dan Tyminski’s album “Carry Me Across the Mountain” Is a shining example of Dan’s wide array of musical talents. This album shows Dan’s diversity as a vocalist, guitar player, mandolin player, and even studio engineer. With the likes of Jerry Douglas, Barry Bales, Ron Block, and Alison Kraus; Dan keeps some incredible company on this album. The standout track for me is “Greens Fees.”
Dan has a knack for playing things that indeed fit the tune; his playing is nuanced and exact, but contains enough character to make any song, lucky enough to be touched by him, a sonic treat.
Dan’s album “Wheels” is another absolute standout with shining vocal performances, but also some stellar song selection, and fantastic production overall.
