Tim Culling is a Los Angeles based singer, songwriter and musician whose music is a confluence of American roots and British flavored alt-rock.
His new 7 song EP, follow-up to his 2008 release “Ghost,” is titled “Goodbye Western Sun.” It was recorded with the same team as “Ghost,” with engineer Tommy Dietrick and drummer Joel Patterson both of Los Angeles band Sky Parade.
“Tim Culling is one talented singer/songwriter, with a knack for memorable melodic hooks. And his hooks may haunt you – in a good way, that is – long after his songs have reached their conclusion.”
-Dan Macintosh, Indie-Music.com magazine
Tim Culling-Goodbye Western Sun.
It's hard to pigeonhole singer-songwriter Tim Culling's sound without resorting to generic categories like "adult alternative pop/rock" as he offers up a little bit of pop, a little bit of rock, a little bit of soul and a little bit of alt-country in his sound. It all adds up to a winning mixture on this 7-track EP, led by the outstanding title track, which has an insistent piano hook that will bury itself in your subconscious, "So With That Aside", its bookend, is another brilliant number with an upbeat melody, and in between the Wilco-esque "This Much I Can See" and the bluesy "I Got a Friend" are the highlights. Possibly 2011's top EP to date.
