In It for the Ride
Danish Blues Musician of the Year 2008 Tim Lothar, born in Denmark in 1968, started his musical career as a drummer, for the last 12 years playing all over Europe with the band "Lightnin' Moe", now put on hold for an indefinite period of time. A few years ago, after 25 years behind his drum kit, Tim Lothar began cultivating singing and playing acoustic guitar to explore classic American Delta Blues. With an indisputable talent and great musical insight Tim began a whole new career as a solo performer, and very quickly issued his debut-CD, "Cut To The Bone" in 2006. The CD received raving and enthusiastic reviews at home and abroad, for instance: * "A guitar player with Blues in his blood". * "A new European blues act with class" * "A CD to classify in your acoustic blues collection next to the big ones, very big ones" The CD really boosted things, and since then Tim has reaped experience and inspiration from his intense touring all over Europe. On his recent, second issue, "In It For The Ride", Tim still explores the Mississippi Blues, but also contributes with his own strong compositions and deep, personal interpretations of the old blues classics. Leading British magazine Blues Matters wrote this: "Tim Lothar's own songwriting is so good, you have to read the credits to discover whether a song is an original or yet another from Sleepy John Estes or Charley Patton".
