Tim - don't stop!
If you don’t hear something on this CD that you like, then you simply don’t like music. Tim Stop’s talent as a singer/songwriter has a vast range, with melody and rhythm always at its core. John Mayer is an influence, to be sure, but you’ll also hear some hints of Pearl Jam and Dave Matthews and tunes that could have been crafted by Josh Rouse and Jack Johnson. “Half a World Away,” with Tim’s always-strong, clear vocals and solid instrumentals, begins the theme of the CD, entitled “Songs of Separation,” which carries through in every number. This one could be interpreted as lovers separated by space or by war, and it’s a timely, somewhat mournful tribute to love across the miles – there’s definitely a classic rock influence in this one. The tune “Songs of Separation” might have Bon Jovi somewhere in its pedigree, with its anthem-rock sound and nice guitar licks and enjoyable harmonies. I keep returning to “A Little Bit Better,” which its infectious pop melody which, let me warn you, is an ear worm in the making. It has a rhythm that you can’t shake, too, and is bound to stay with you. If you’re sorting by genre, this belongs beside Mayer, Jack Johnson and Josh Rouse. “Rollin’” is an entirely different kind of work, a blues-tinged, darn-near-country piece that could easily be delivered by the likes of any rockin’ country star (are you listening, Blake Shelton?), with lyrics of someone who feels betrayed -- “Seems you like to see me when I’m down and out.” With its enjoyable piano riffs and opportunities for a live jam, this will appeal to fans of Dave Matthews and Phish. Tim’s piano is the foundation for many of these pieces, including “Unconditional,” which might lead you to think you’re hearing an undiscovered Bruce Hornsby cut at first. Melodic and hum-able, this is solid easy-listening. The piano stars right alongside Tim’s vocals on “Something’s Gotta Give,” a nicely syncopated number fit to be delivered on stage – fans of “Rent” and “Chicago” are sure to appreciate this. Not coincidentally, its lyrics allude to dance. Tim’s piano really shines here, with chord progressions worthy of George Winston or Vince Guaraldi that contain a hint of jazz. If you think you have Tim’s musical style pegged, you’ll change your mind when “Professional” pops up, because it turns around and delivers a song that’s a nod to classic R&B. Although most of these cuts hint at love betrayed and lost, the mournful, piano-driven “Whisper in the Wind” focuses on a friend’s death and searches for answers. Its tune and delivery are reminiscent of Barry Manilow’s material in his earliest years. Obviously, Tim’s talent reaches across a spectrum of musical styles, and his talented band is right there along with him to create music worthy of a musician far beyond Tim’s years.
