Pictures in the Attic
The 3rd active release in Tim Kwiat's active catalog again showcases the artist writing all of the songs and performing all of the vocals and instruments (on all but 1 song) from the comfort of his basement studio in Lancaster, PA. While filled with all of the trademark hooks and signature vocal harmonies, this is a very unique offering in that it holds a universal theme that almost everyone can relate to. The lyrics are mature and extremely contemplative. The music itself seems to flow back and forth between pure joy and darkness in nothing flat, making for a unique experience! This record is about growing up and growing older. Performed in a classic rock style, there are fond memories of childhood days, mysteries solved, soul searching, facing fears, appreciation for where we are, statements of commitment, and realizing that our time is not our own. As the album progresses, the mood of each track weaves from upbeat and happy, to pensive and reflective... from joy to fear and frustration. There are reflections, questions, celebrations, and regrets... it's truly life on disc!
