Tim Spriggs might be a new name to our readers, but with his debut EP, he shows he is far from new to music.
This five track EP is hot of the press (due out tomorrow) and kicks off with a great introduction to Tim with ‘Once in a Lifetime’. He has a great tone to his voice, and knows how to put together a good track. On the mellow, but moody rock style of things, it is a great sounding recording, and is worthy of your attention.
Whilst on the mellow side, do not mistake that for weak, as it certainly holds some power throughout the course of the EP . Whilst moody, it is more the vocals that create that mood, as evidenced by the chorus in ‘As they Say’. He really has a great voice!
Personally, ‘Something Else’ is not my cup of tea, but shows his diversity, and his high quality guitar playing ability, before finishing the EP off with ‘The End of the Year’, which is a stripped back track.
Overall, a very solid EP, with my highlight being ‘As They Say’. Expect more from Tim Spriggs, and I expect it would come across live.
