Meet the unforgettable Tim Carr!

More and more, this appears to be transforming into a year of fantastic singer-songwriters. Aside from the already mentioned English musicians This is the Kit and Marika Hackman, there are amazing songwriters popping up in Los Angeles, one of whom is Tim Carr.

Tuesday night saw Jherek Bischoff making his debut as an L.A. resident, performing at the Echoplex while backed by Brother, Sister, and though Tim Carr spent two sets playing drums (for Brother, Sister's own set as well as Bischoff's), he opened the show with a stunning solo set, managing to create a playlist that was lush and delicate and, really, embodied what the world sounds like when it's about to blossom. He reminds an awful lot of Will Stratton, and is just about one of the best solo performers I've seen in years. The thing that really pushed him forward was the addition of his bandmates in Brother, Sister, contributing strings to back him for two songs, bringing his already dreamy music into another world. The addition of a harp can only help things along.
