Tyminski (Dan Tyminski) makes his solo late-night TV debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on October 23 performing the title track to his album Southern Gothic which was released today. Featured on NPR’s First Listen and All Things Considered, the 13-track album is described as “broody, imagery-driven portraiture of hidden desire, religious guilt and unsteady conscience.” Also, today Entertainment Weekly is premiering the Wes Edwards (Tim McGraw, Brothers Osborne) directed music video for “Southern Gothic”.
Tyminski, a Rutland, Vermont native, is a 14-time Grammy Award-winner and one of the premier vocalists in modern acoustic music. He co-wrote Southern Gothic with top songwriters including Sarah Buxton (“Stupid Boy”), Josh Kear (“Need You Now”), Cary Barlowe (“American Honey”), Andrew Dorff (“Neon Light”), Amy Wadge (“Thinking Out Loud”) and Southern Gothic producer Jesse Frasure (“Dirt On My Boots”).
As a child, Tyminski was drawn to Southern singers including Jimmy Martin, Ricky Skaggs and Tony Rice and found himself not only mimicking their southern singing voices but also teaching himself how to play banjo by ear. A 25-year member of Alison Krauss’ Union Station, Tyminski is also the singing voice of George Clooney’s character in the film O Brother, Where Art Thou? for which he won two Grammy Awards including Best Country Collaboration with Vocals for the single “I Am A Man of Constant Sorrow” and Album of the Year for the soundtrack which sold over 10 million copies worldwide.
In 2014 after lending his vocals to Avicii’s international pop hit “Hey Brother,” which went #1 in at least 18 countries and has global streams of over 1.1 billion and downloads of 5.3 million, Tyminskibegan to realize that he could fit outside of his acoustic music box. With Southern Gothic, Tyminski has crafted an American quilt of music that is a melding of genres and in which the symbolism of light and dark seem to always be at odds.
