'A Stranger In This Time' ranges from Tim Grimm's signature reverence for the people and the land where he grew up (indiana) to sharply crafted and damning indictments of the times in which we live; from deep, poetic ballads of bittersweet love to edgy, groove-driven social commentary.

The opening track, "These Rollin' Hills" invites us in with love of Grimm's home ground and a subtle foreboding about the upcoming winter, both actual and metaphorical. The songs "Gonna Be Great" and "Black Snake" give a nod to both Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan in their gritty production and social-political protest vibe; both full of stunning guitar riffs, electric and acoustic, as well as compelling bass and drum beats. There are songs of lush soundscape and potent images with the mesmerizing urgency of "Over The Waves", and "Finding Home" which evokes deep yearning. "Thirteen Years" is pure, classic Tim Grimm; a song about the tree that fell on his grandfather's farm and that many years later became the wood for the guitar on which he recorded the CD.

Press Quotes

With its beautiful construction, and seamless mix of new and old, A Stranger In This Time puts Grimm right up there with the best in the current country/bluegrass scene. **** - Pete Whalley
