Before You Wake
THE ALBUM: 'Before You Wake' is Tim Ivery's debut album. Recorded in the first half of 2004, although principally a rock album, the eleven tracks on the disc encompass a wide range of styles. From the driving blues/rock based 'Mr Cunningham' to the anthemic acoustic ballad 'Song for Everyone' and the reggae/calypso themed 'Paradise, to the soaring guitar based rocky title track 'Before You Wake' this album has a little something for everyone. The album is also available in a CD/DVD set which can be purchased directly from our website. Here's what Tim had to say about the disc upon it's release in June 2004: 'Before You Wake is principally a chronicle of the unspoken word. We have all been in situations in our lives where we just can't sleep for whatever reason whilst the rest of the world, and more importantly the people we would most like to share our troubles with are sound asleep. Maybe you've had an argument with a lover, and you are lying awake watching her as the words you only wish you could utter to her remain forcibly muted. Or perhaps there is something major going down in your life and you are left troubled, awake and alone with your thoughts while the rest of the world sleeps, blissfully unaware of your torment. Before You Wake is a catalogue of some of my thoughts, feelings, and unspoken words, over the last few years. Even though the title may seem accusatory, it hasn't always been that way, sometimes, as with all of us, the extended waking hours can be filled with happy thoughts. Any way, I hope you all enjoy the album' - Tim Ivery Purchase of an Ivery CD entitles the owner to access the members only area of the website, where users can find bonus tracks, interviews, reviews, articles, music videos, and a whole lot more.
