Tim O'Brien is a subtle master at mixing the primary musical colors into his distinct sound. Tim co-founded the bluegrass group Hot Rize. Hot Rize and Wester Swing alter-egos Red Knuckles and the Trailblazers eventually recorded ten albums and toured the US, Europe, Japan, and Australia. The group was named Entertainer of the Year 1990 by the International Bluegrass Music Association. O'Brien's solo recordings started in 1982 with Hard Year Blues, and other projects included three duet albums with his sister Mollie O'Brien. It has been four years since Tim's last solo recording. Between collaborations with Darrell Scott, the recent Grammy-winning recording with Jerry Douglas's Earls of Leicester and the rebooting of Hot Rize; he's barely had time for a shower. Still, somewhere in O'Brien's vivid imagination, the seeds of his new album Pompadour,which comes out Friday, October 30, began to sprout. The fruits of his recent wanderings, music making and worldly observations have blossomed into eleven exquisitely varied, true-to-life and above all musical tracks.
