Singer-songwriter Tim Grimm released his new digital single ‘Dreaming of King Lear‘ on April 30 2021. It is the last song that Tim wrote for his upcoming album Gone, due for European release in September and follows last year’s critically acclaimed single ‘Gone’, which was the most played song on folk radio in the US in 2020.
Tim explains ‘Dreaming of King Lear’: “2020 saw the loss of not only John Prine (referenced in the new album’s title track ‘Gone’), but also Eric Taylor, Michael Smith and David Olney. These three master songwriters were all inspirations for me, and over the years I hosted them in concerts in Indiana, appeared on stages and festivals with them, and co-toured parts of the states or Europe. These are voices and spirits that were unique and will be sorely missed in the folk music world.”
