Информация: A few years back, singer-songwriter Tim Barry closed out an album by pondering his own death – and he didn’t seem mind leaving this earth too much. “Take what you want/I won’t leave much,” he sang. 2012 finds him in a very different place. Themes of resilience and hope flow through Tim Barry’s new record, 40 Miler. “If this record is uplifting compared to my old ones it’s because I feel stronger from all the beat-downs and shit I’ve taken in the past,” says the Richmond, Virginia-based artist. Throughout 40 Miler, the rough-hewn characters populating Barry’s lyrics refuse to surrender even in the face of long odds. 40 Miler also finds Barry taking his spare folk-country sound in a different direction. This time around Barry opts for more raucous, rocking approach on several tracks, adding more electric guitar, organ, piano, harmonica, as well as the gorgeous voice of Richmond songstress Julie Karr to the mix.
