Full Of Soul
Following is a sampling of music by Tim Pepper (singer/song writer/guitarist/sound engineer/author/biotech lab rat/guy who waits tables part time).
What makes Tim’s music interesting is he writes in so many diverse styles: fast, slow, sad, happy, loud, soft, serious, light, bluesy, jazzy, rockish, folkish, reflective and just for fun. But all of his music has soul! Fast or slow, it grabs.
None of it forced. It just flows naturally.
Apart from a few keyboard lessons around age 8 or 9 and a few voice lessons in his late twenties, he’s never had serious musical training.
Following high school he borrowed my guitar, which mostly collected dust, and a few cord books. Guitar playing friends showed him a rift or two and with that, his musical career was launched. More than a hundred songs and several albums later, the rest is history.
Powerful! Compelling! This is a must hear. In addition to the song’s incredible message, Tim’s other talents are apparent also. Tim wrote, sang, produced all the music and sound effects, recorded the video and engineered the sound. Even the artwork is Tim’s.
Must Be Home
This is one of Tim’s more reflective songs. And it is fairly recent.
The Darker Side
This is a live recording from a local Nashville venue and is one of my favorites.
Jesus Can You Help Me
There’s nothing pie in the sky about Tim’s spiritual music. It’s real as you can see from this video.
Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika
This is Tim’s acoustic version of the South African National Anthem without lyrics. It was recorded in Durban South Africa several years ago and is still one of my favorites.
It seems fitting to end with a song entitled ByeBye. This video was shot live at the National Underground in Nashville, TN. Great song! Great vibe and a lot of fun.
Hope you enjoyed the show!
