Tim Alexander has been performing on guitar for many years, having played rock and jazz-oriented music before moving into his current specialty of evocative music for solo fingerstyle guitar. He has written many original pieces for guitar, and those taken together with his moving arrangements of spiritual, Celtic, pop, and Americana reveal a rare and affecting musical soul.
Tim and Sandy Shalk were the first musicians featured in the Guitarist Presentation Series of the Piney Ridge Music record label. Their CD called "Giving Voice" is distributed internationally through the CD Baby website, here (including sound clips):
Reviewers of the music of Tim and Sandy have called it "terrific guitar music" (Minor 7th Webzine, Sept-Oct 2006; Kirk Albrecht), and "good guitar music, beautifully played" (SING OUT! - Spring 2007 – Volume 51, #1).
Tim is constantly working on new compositions and guitar arrangements, and has given group workshops and lessons to individuals in his areas of interest.
Tim has recorded many tracks for an upcoming CD, and has a number of guitar arrangements in tab/music form. You can contact him to discuss purchase of any of these items, as well as his availability for performances, recordings, and guitar lessons and workshops.
