SYML Featured In Short Film ‘TIM,’ Troubadour Sold-Out 

July 23, 2019 BY Nettwerk

SYML’s brooding fan favorite cover of “Mr. Sandman” has been used in new short film TIM (out now). The film was written & directed by commercial filmmaker John Grammatico and produced by Shinebox. With support from his team at Little Saint Media, John helms spots for brands such as AT&T, McDonald’s, M&Ms and Ford. He’s worked with celebrities like Meghan Markle and Anna Faris and his breast cancer PSA, Your Man Reminder won a Webby Award and first place at TED’s Ideas Worth Spreading, garnering almost 8 million hits on YouTube. 
When asked about the inspiration for his short, Grammatico said, “As a father, it’s an interesting thing to step into your child’s school environment. I guess I forgot what a complex world that can be. It’s hard not to notice how some kids make choices to stand out while others just try to disappear. With TIM, I wanted characters from each end of that spectrum to confront each other. To make a connection. But I wanted to do it in a way that shows empathy for both.

TIM is a story for anyone who’s ever felt invisible. No matter our status in school or life, we’ve all felt that way at some point. So I like to think that we all can relate to TIM.”

Following a North American and European tour in support of his debut self-titled album, SYML is staying on the road through the end of the year. Up next in the U.S, is an appearance at Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco on August 11th and a sold-out headlining show on August 12th at the historic Troubadour in Los Angeles. Due to scheduling, his remaining August shows have been moved to December. A complete list of dates can be found below.
