Tim Carr is a Los Angeles based singer, composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist. His music is a stunning mix of instrumental interludes, and experimental pop songs inspired by African rhythms, melodies of the French Romantics and 60s soul.
Raised in Marin County, Northern California, Carr was surrounded by a family of musicians. At an early age he immersed himself into music and studied Jazz drums at the prestigious California Institute of the Arts. In college he began working with The Americans and Haim, which led to performing with notable acts Julian Casablancas, Lucinda Williams and Nick Cave, to name a few. His time with the band The Americans saw him performing on Letterman, recording with T Bone Burnett, as well as being featured in the Emmy-nominated documentary ‘American Epic’, which was produced by T Bone Burnett, Jack White and Robert Redford. He is currently the drummer for the band Fell Runner.
Carr’s EP Swing & Turn , is the follow up to his 2016 release The Last Day of Fighting, which found success being featured on Robert Redford’s ‘Watershed’ soundtrack, alongside the likes of Beck and Thom Yorke. Swing & Turn is titled after the feeling of movement, like a dance between intimacy and independence, which is also a common theme in the music. Having mixed, produced and engineered the five track release himself, Swing & Turn is the perfect balance of dissonance and consonance, with unexpected swelling harmonies, lilting rhythms and minimalistic pop.
