He was just one person but for those attending the Patron Exclusive Concert last Sunday, Tim Wright of the Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) and Shepherd Express nominated blues band, Blind Fiction sounded like a full band. Tim not only delighted our patrons with his exceptional songwriting and playing, but he also left us wondering, in the words of Jack Nicholson’s Joker from 1989’s Batman, “Where does he get all those wonderful toys?”
Tim incorporated a looper, effects pedals, and even a vocal harmonizer to bring something truly special to this concert series. Beyond that, Tim talked about song writing, developing his craft, and finding confidence in himself and the music he creates. His songs and his stories flowed seamlessly together and gave the afternoon a warm and welcome respite from the previous week’s excitement.
Tim played in front of the backdrop of his basement, a great music lab of creativity if ever there was one. The wall directly behind him painted with chalk board black paint, was adorned with a chalk drawing of the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars (I really hope you already knew that!) entering into hyperspace which he hand-drew while livestreaming the entire process on Facebook Live.
Tim gave us something we haven’t seen yet at our Patron Exclusive Concert Series and we can’t wait to get him and his whole band back in front of you when it’s safe to do so. Check out Tim and his band at their website–www.blindfiction.com–and be sure to catch us at our next Patron Exclusive Event.
If you haven’t yet, become a patron today and join us at our next Patron Exclusive Concert (every 2nd Sunday of the month).
