SINGER / SONGWRITER
Anyone who has met Australian singer/songwriter Tim Reid or listened to his addictive music knows that he occupies a magical space. A space where a distinctive blend of unassuming flair and intense ambition collide to produce an artist who is at once approachable and intelligent. Tim Reid’s music is characterised by beautiful, stirring melodies and an easy openness in his lyrics that only comes with genuine poise.
Tim released his first EP, Catherine, in 1998 which received local and national airplay and which also prompted him to begin showcasing his talents at live gigs. A song he recorded for ABC radio, World That’s Made For Two (featured on his current album) was play-listed on affiliated AM stations and has since maintained a constant level of airplay.
Tim has focused (in his own endearingly disorganised but secretly exacting way) on becoming a mature songwriter and performer, and he has just emerged from the studio with his first full-length album. Recorded with the help of Arts Victoria and released by Popboomerang records, Any Given Day features the eclectic talents of Ross Calia, Susie Ahern, Marcus Goodwin and Matty Vehl (Ice Cream Hands), Marty Brown (Art of Fighting, Sodastream) and jazz artist Tim Wilson. Brimming with real human emotion, it explores themes of love, loss, and all things in between, weaving familiar sketches, soothing philosophies and fresh ideas into delicate but potent songs that are easy on the ear and reassuringly catchy.
