Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Tim Hart is preparing to release his new solo album Winning Hand on February 19, 2021, and today he shares lead single “Great Escape,” a reflection on an old relationship, the questions that remain when things don’t work out, and wishing good things for that person in their future that will remain unknown.

On his third solo album, Tim displays the maturity of his songwriting with stories of longing, love and, at times, heartbreak. 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.

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.”
