WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Ken Beasley's music, not quite country, not quite jazz, seamlessly taps into both, as well as flamenco, Motown, blues, folk, and even disco and classical to create an adventurous sound all his own. Borrowing from his years as a flamenco guitarist, Beasley presents the rootsy compositions of his new album Greenhorn on a nylon-string guitar in unique finger-style rhythms. The forms blend to produce a mood that smoothly balances cozy and familiar with exciting and fresh. A dark, churning stew of folk, blues, and rock, Tim Robinson's musical style has inspired admiration and respect from audiences and contemporaries alike, with Paste Magazine describing him as "... a beguiling mix of Greg Brown-style folk and thoughtful alt. country..." and Suzanne Vega calling him "…one of my favorite songwriters." His music evokes an abstract America full of the wisdom of a poet who's honed his craft -- both deft and aware.
