Tyminski’s “Wanted” And “Temporary Love” Performances On ABC’s Good Morning America

Tyminski (Dan Tyminski) made his solo morning TV debut on ABC’s Good Morning America yesterday with his performance of “Wanted” from his critically acclaimed album Southern Gothic. The 14-time Grammy winner also performed “Temporary Love.”

 

The release of Southern Gothic led to an immediate reaction from the press and fans alike, garnering impressive remarks from The New York Times, NPR: All Things Considered, Entertainment Weekly and No Depression. Tyminski performed “Southern Gothic” on CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The song was also named one of The New York Times’ 54 Best Songs of 2017.

 

A Rutland, Vermont native, Tyminski co-wrote Southern Gothic with top songwriters including Sarah Buxton (“Stupid Boy”), Josh Kear (“Need You Now”), Cary Barlowe (“American Honey”), Andrew Dorff (“Neon Light”), Amy Wadge (“Thinking Out Loud”) and Southern Gothic producer Jesse Frasure (“Dirt On My Boots”).

 

Tyminski has always been drawn to Southern singers including Jimmy Martin, Ricky Skaggs and Tony Rice. As a child, he found himself not only mimicking their southern singing voices, but also teaching himself how to play banjo by ear. A 25-year member of Alison Krauss’ Union Station, Tyminski is also the singing voice of George Clooney’s character in the film O Brother, Where Art Thou? for which he won two Grammy Awards including Best Country Collaboration with Vocals for the single “I Am A Man of Constant Sorrow” and Album of the Year for the soundtrack which sold over 10 million copies worldwide.

 

In 2014 after lending his vocals to Avicii’s international pop hit “Hey Brother,” which went #1 in at least 18 countries and has global streams of over 1.1 billion and downloads of 5.3 million, Tyminski began to realize that he could fit outside of his acoustic music box. With Southern Gothic, Tyminski has crafted an American quilt of music that is a melding of genres and in which the symbolism of light and dark seem to always be at odds.

 

Tyminski is currently on tour in support of Southern Gothic with more dates to be added. Additional videos for “Wanted” and “Temporary Love” can be viewed here and here.

Album Review: Tyminski | ‘Southern Gothic’

He was the deep, bluegrassy singing voice of George Clooney’s character in ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou’, a GRAMMY winner, and member of Alison Krauss & Union Station.

The new album, ‘Southern Gothic’ from Universal Nashville’s newest addition to their tremendous roster, Tyminski, is quite special. The first time I heard it, it gave me chills and I could not get the music out of my head.  It’s actually kind of indescribable. You can’t fit this one in the genre box. It’s swampy, haunting, cathartic, reflective, a little country, Americana, indie rock even…it’s magnificent and my favorite album to come out in a long time.

Do yourself a favor and buy this album. Grab a glass of wine or whiskey might be a little more appropriate for this one, turn up the volume, and be prepared to feel transported down to the deep southern cities of Savannah and New Orleans through the lyrical imagery of this musical masterpiece.  Imagine cities where Spanish moss hangs low from trees near over 100-year old southern mansions like the Garden District of New Orleans, and around every street corner you know there is some history, often a slightly sorted history that will intrigue you.  It’s just a vibe in both cities that is both unmistakable and indescribable, which is how I would describe this new album from Tyminski.

Better yet, grab a copy of this album, pack your bag, pop it in your car’s cd player, and take a weekend trip yourself down to these beautiful southern cities to see what I mean.  It’s the perfect soundtrack to accompany you along the way, if you decide to live it up and explore what I think inspired this album or at least what I imagine inspired it.

Watch this mesmerizing new video of the title track, “Southern Gothic”, my favorite off the album, by clicking HERE.  You’ll want to watch it over & over like me.

You’re going to love this one.  Buy it today!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars.
