Tim Mar – Surrey Muse

529525_10150907168052443_696654944_n
To remember the words and hit the notes, to swoon
beautiful women, to express ideas, provoke thoughts,
tell stories, go on a melodic journey, slay dragons, to feel
alive and connected on an artistic, creative level
.’
– Tim’s goals as a singer

Tim Mar is one of Vancouver’s spirited and determined musicians who are keeping country music alive in the cityscape. His first CD, Playin’ In The Mud, came out in the late nineties, and was soon sold out. His songs have found audiences with various local radio stations including CBC Maritimes and College Radio Halifax. Tim has since created a lot more songs, and is preparing to publish a new CD. He was born in a small town in Nova Scotia, where before long he was singing songs and making tunes for his own amusement. As a teen, he began to keep a harmonica in his pocket, and when he reached his twenties, he picked up a guitar. Tim’s musical self-amusing activities began to acquire a more public-performing nature when, by mere chance, he got to perform with a band. Time plays ‘Folkie bluesy song writer stuff’, and he’s most inspired by ‘Bob Dylan more than any, Tommy Makems, Paddy Reilly,… a long and varied list spanning styles, cultures, generations.’
