"I wrote all the right things for you."

I'm having a hard time describing Tim Williams. Sure, I could tell you that he's a Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter. But there are so many of those. And most of them are mediocre and generic at best . And you see, Tim Williams is not.

Take the standout track "Novel". It's is one hell of a song. Simultaneously crisp and sparkling, yet urgent and yearning in its pounding acoustic intensity. I hate to use cliche adjectives like "haunting" and "passionate" to describe Tim's music, except in his case's there's really nothing cliche about it.

Mark your calendar's for October 2nd. That's when his debut album When Work Is Done drops.
Novel - Tim Williams
