There is an Earthquake Inside of Me

by His Name Shall Breathe

"[PDX TROUBADOURS] It's hard to describe His Name Shall Breathe—the moniker of one-man show Timothy Martin—as anything other than indisputably real. Whether it's with his intricate yet delicate guitar lines or his soul-crushing lyrics, the local troubadour can grab every pair of eyes and ears in a room and hold them tight for a night. On the 2009 release There Is an Earthquake Inside of Me, Martin's songs ooze honesty and unnerving emotion in ways an average songwriter can only dream of." - willamette week

Album Notes
"“We’re all part of the same revolution, and it’s called, ‘I’m going to care about something so much that it changes my life’”. Tim Martin, better known as His Name Shall Breathe produces the music that is the opus to this revolution. His aptly named debut album There Is an Earthquake Inside of Me released this January, recounts the moments collectively shared from love through loss amongst gentle staccato guitar chords and heartfelt lyrics of disillusionment. Whether Tim Martin is heading a revolution or merely struggling with the fickle aspects of life, his compassionate performance sends a distinct message – take care of each other when you can.

For every gloomy walk through splattering rain, unrequited elementary school romance, and lengthy road trip leading to an irrevocable goodbye there is a narrative presented by His Name Shall Breathe. Tim Martin’s ability to illustrate these moments resonates with simplicity that prompts hopefulness unlike other artists. Instead of grey clouds clearing, broken hearts mending, and affectionate reunions, the walks through the rain are spent jumping in puddles, the broken hearts are left on distant coastlines, and reunions are forgone for nameless friendships. Based in Portland, poetically known as the city of roses, His Name Shall Breathe describes beauty in each thorn rather than focusing on a single petal.

Tim Martin’s soft voice underlies tenderly plucked guitar arrangements on songs such as ‘Swallow No More Drugs’ lulling you into an embracing warmth with lines such as, “Stay safe in the waves where even the oceans are holding hands with one another, as if they were lovers.” The appeal of His Name Shall Breathe stems from honesty in his recordings, overflowing with an impression of modest authenticity; as a listener, you quickly find a genuine allure in his revolution often catching yourself singing along to ‘55th and Halsey’ in between hand claps. There is an unquestionable amount of care set into There Is an Earthquake Inside of Me – so much it could change your life." - cavacool.com
