Putting It To Bed [album]
his unbelievable hit-making
pedigree, new artist Tim Daniel
should be spreading his talent around
in music and making his name one
to be remembered...
HAILED AS BRITAIN'S MOST EXCITING new singer-songwriter, Tim Daniel
certainly knows how to put an album together. His debut album Putting It
To Bed has a tracklisting that includes not only a melodic title track that
enables Tim to show what he can do but also his quirky debut single Digging
My Heels In (out now, released 12 May, 2008) that has such interesting voice-work.
At the tender age of 22 Tim was snapped up by Steelworks the 1990s pop
production outfit. Two years later he struck out on his own, forming the True
North Music Company with Steelworks' Eliot Kennedy and Gary Barlow. Tim has
written hits behind artistes such as Toploader, Blue, Simon Webbe and Delta
Produced, written and mixed by Tim, Putting It To Bed is, as the publicity
machine says, a classic debut full of songs of substance, words of essence and
tunes that are destined to become hugely familiar to anyone with an ear for
melody and an emotional core. As Take That main man Gary Barlow succinctly puts
it: "an album full of hits obviously written from the heart."
Putting It To Bed sounds personal and emotive and very much 'together'
as an album albeit very individual tracks. An emotive and secular theme
runs through it that gives it a 'oneness', while Tim Daniel's distinctive and
strong vocals flow in an undulating miasma of quality.
An outstanding track is the upbeat It Ain't Working which, although it
has a 'familiar feel', is new and attractive. Sounds as if it's working to me,
Any fan of the songbooks from the great singer-songwriters will find something
to love Tim recently got his fair share of attention when he supported
Take That on the band's UK tour and he has been dubbed the "British John Mayer".
Tim is justifiably pleased with his creation. "It's been an action-packed few
years," he says, "and making the album has been hard work, but I'm really proud
Tim Daniel's debut single Digging My
Heels In was released through Universal Music on 12 May (2008) and is taken
from his debut album Putting It To Bed, which was released on 16 June
