Nashville based harpist/songwriter Timbre has been enchanting audiences across the world with her unique harp-based folk rock. Though featured playing harp with bands/artists such as Jack White, Ricky Skaggs, mewithoutYou, and the Chariot, her solo music is even more breathtaking. Her ensemble of musicians bring complete stillness to crowded bars and festivals, silencing audiences of thousands.
“Timbre’s enchanting soprano reminds me of the vocalizing of Celtic Woman, and she embeds her voice in melodies and arrangements that suggest the mystery and beauty of a band such as Sigur Rós. The album is exquisite, well worth listening to.” –Mark Allister, PopMatters.com
“While it might sound ancient, it’s all really quite new, and the overall effect is startling…. Timbre’s work is both haunting and elegant, and her voice has the capacity to soar to the upper reaches.” –Stereo Subversion
