Tim Grimm, the Indiana-based folk-americana singer-songwriter and actor, has announced a short UK tour in support of his latest and current #1 album on the US Folk Radio Chart ‘Heart Land Again’ which is a re-recording of his ‘Heart Land’ album originally released back in 1999 – the new version is due for UK release next month.
Of the new record Tim said: “Twenty years ago, I recorded the first Heart Land. The songs were the result of falling in love again with the rural Midwest and its people. My wife Jan and I made a conscious choice to relocate from Los Angeles to an old 80 acre farm in south-central Indiana. In these 20 years, we have lost many of the characters in these songs, but they now ‘live’ every time I sing about them. Our sons Jackson and Connor were five and seven when I recorded the original album, and none of us could have imagined they’d become the musicians they are now. They both put their stamp on this new recording in numerous ways, and encouraged me to look afresh on several tunes. I still sing these songs – for me, they’re ‘keepers’ after all these years, and it brings me great joy to show them in a new light.”
