Tim & The Glory Boys: Me Without You

By Kerry Doole

Tim & The Glory Boys – Me Without You (Sony Music): The Tim in this country band is BC-based singer/songwriter/frontman lead singer Tim Neufeld, a seasoned artist who has won multiple Juno, Dove, and Covenant awards, some as lead singer of contemporary Christian band Starfield. His debut solo album, Trees, won the 2014 Juno Award for Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year.


Together since 2013, Tim and his four Glory Boys comrades have won fans with its bluegrass-inflected country sound and spirited performance style. New single and video Me Without You describes a deeply committed loving relationship (sample lyric: "I’m the shadows you’re the stars I’d be lost out in the dark ... Cause there’s no me without you").  In a press release, Neufeld states “It's definitely a metaphor song – that idea of ‘hey, we're not just in love, you have my heart and my whole life and nothing feels real unless you know about it and you're involved in it, and I'm kinda nothing without you.’”

The accompanying video, directed by David Redman and shot in Hamilton and Winnipeg, furthers the narrative of a young couple’s emotional roller-coaster journey of love. 

The mid-tempo tune features strong vocal harmonies and a swelling strings-laced production sound that makes this distinctly radio-friendly.

Tim & The Glory Boys have just announced a Home Town Hoedown Tour set to hit over 40 cities and towns in North America this fall. More info here.

Of note: The band is managed by Brad Rempel, an artist and songwriter in his own right and half of the popular Nashville-based duo, High Valley.

Will Butler on Writing the Tony-Nominated Music for ‘Stereophonic’: ‘It Was Like a Thousand-Piece Puzzle With 200 Pieces Missing’

The former Arcade Fire member has two nominations for his stunning songs, written for a fictional (but very believable) rock band onstage.

Will Butler’s first meeting with playwright David Adjmi was fairly open-ended: a friend had told Butler that Adjmi — a fan of Arcade Fire, the band Butler was in at the time — was working on a play about a band and that Butler could “write the music or just consult or whatever.”

But from their first sit-down at a diner near New York’s theatre district, Adjmi’s vision was “instantly recognizable” to Butler: “Like, oh, it’s a demo — it’s like a transcendental thing that they can never recapture. You have things falling apart because the headphones sound bad, you have people yelling at each other over music but it’s because of how their dad treated them,” he recalls with a laugh.
