With over ten years as both a solo act and full band production, Timothy Bracken of the Timothy Bracken Complex delivers a rich performance for the rock, pop, and folk palate. A mainstay of the Washington, DC and Baltimore areas, Bracken's instrumental versatility and wide range of material have made him a sought-out talent, extending him the opportunity to work with other artists and bands such as Peter Case, Eric Ambel and Kelley Looney (Steve Earl Band), Richard Buckner, June Star, Mark McKay, The Weber Brothers, Mikal Evans, The Egg Babies Orchestra and more.
HERE IS WHAT THE PRESS SAYS ABOUT TIMOTHY:
ABOUT HIS LIVE SHOW...
"Timothy Bracken and his band, showed the benefits of woodshedding, the practice of polishing your songs for as long as it takes until they're ready to reveal to the public. Tim, they're ready.
The four-piece unit's bright and tight set was made up of clever arrangements, catchy hooks and a sound that absolutely defines the genre of alternative indie pop. With the right break, Bracken could give Fountains of Wayne some competition." -Buzz McClain (WASHINGTON POST)
ABOUT HIS ALBUM, DISREPAIR...
"Brilliant alt.country - alternately timid and brash." - PASTE MAGAZINE
"Timothy Bracken, a big asset on June Star's "Sugarbird," occasionally veers toward slightly askew British pop on his solo disc, "Disrepair." The multi-instrumentalist has a knack for writing songs that sound engagingly tuneful and emotionally complicated within the same verse, as "What It's Like to Be Blind" demonstrates, and even when he's ranting on "Stolen Car," his pop smarts shine through." -Mike Joyce (WASHINGTON POST)
