The Red Rogue has released its first album in ten years! Phoenicia, named for the tiny town where it was recorded one summer, is available here on Bandcamp.

The Modern Folk was “drawn in by the warm feel of the recording” and “experimental edge”; Space Rock Mountain calls it “a pleasure to hear.”

Tim wrote Hunting Songs (2013) over a single winter in Maine, then spent three years bringing it all together as a a website featuring contributions from different visual artists for each song.

Some Hunting Songs press:
The Modern Folk Music of America calls the album ‘a rare, weird bird.’

Spacerockmountain praises Tim’s ‘quirky, charming delivery of offbeat lyrics and simple, impressive songcraft.’

I Minored In Music has listened to Treehouse ‘about a zillion times’ and still likes it.

Tim cooks up some hummus with write.cook.click.listen.

Telephone Lines (2010) is Tim’s first solo LP. Several songs were refined and recorded with the Red Rogue; recording took place in Red Hook, Brooklyn at Hook Studios, various New York apartments and a Maine attic.
