Today, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Tim Hart, best known as part of Australian indie folk/rock band Boy & Bear, releases his third solo album, Winning Hand. Drawing from both personal experience and the tales of those he has met on the road, Winning Hand takes listeners on a journey that feels part travel book, part private diary. Recorded at Sydney’s Golden Retriever Studios with engineer Simon Berkelman, this was the first time that Tim recorded his solo music with a full band, inviting an array of skilled session musicians into his world. The result is a living, grooving album that has all the hallmarks of an album recorded in the old way. Winning Hand is available at digital retail stores HERE.
On Winning Hand, Tim displays the maturity of his songwriting with stories of longing, love and, at times, heartbreak. After eleven years of making albums and touring almost constantly around the world, 2020 gave Tim a chance to stop. Life is different now. Tim is a first-time father, something he credits with being the greatest thing a person can experience. With so much change in the year, one thing that isn’t in question is Tim’s passion. He says, “Now more than ever I want to be able to connect with people. Share stories and songs. I think that’s what we all need in a year that has been so unpredictable and tough.”
