Tim Brantley interview 

Tim Brantley
Submitted by Rickard Holmgren on 2009-06-22
Tim Brantley has released a killer album with "Goldtop Heights". Melodic.net had some questions to ask, here are the answers.
Hi there Tim, how are you doing?
Tim Brantley: Doing well, poolside in Austin Texas right now so probably better than most...

Tell us, who is Tim Brantley?
Tim Brantley: Hes my dad, Im Tim Brantley II, hes a really great guy and he has one of the best mustaches in history...

How would you describe your own music?
Tim Brantley: I get this question a lot and the answer is always different, my friends call it glock rock... I dont really have any perspective on it anymore...I guess its just good old fashioned rock and roll...

You have been compared to early Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, Hall & Oates, Billy Joel and Warren Zevon. Who would you say was your biggest influence?
Tim Brantley: Probably Wings and Springsteen for this record, I was really into both while I was making it...but probably a lot of different things from that era... I tried to live in a box while I made this record...

Looking at videos of your performances, one can see you playing both piano and guitar on stage, which one do you prefer?
Tim Brantley: Piano

You did get a 4-star rating at Melodic.net, but how would you handle a really bad review?
Tim Brantley: If you cant handle criticism youre in the wrong line of work... it motivates me but sometimes it can wear on you.....

How do you write a song? What does the creation process look like?
Tim Brantley: Its kind of like a storm...it comes through, sometimes unexpected some more intense than others...its never planned, I cant write like that..

What music do you listen to yourself?
Tim Brantley: Wilco, Meatloaf, and Michael Jackson right now...

Who would be your dream artist to share a stage with?
Tim Brantley: Dolly Parton...seriously...or Kenny Rogers...either one...

What is, in your opinion, the best and worst thing with being an artist?
Tim Brantley: Best, meeting new people...worst, not being home enough...

Any plans of touring Europe?
Tim Brantley: It has been discussed, trying to make it happen in the good old U.S.A. first though...thats a priority...

Thanks for answering the questions. Any final words to our
readers?

Tim Brantley: Yes, thank you for reading... pick up a copy of "Goldtop Heights" tell me what you think and come out to a show and say hello...

Did you know that?

Robert Smith of The Cure was also the guitarist in the early days of Siouxsie and the Banshees. Both jobs became too much, so he focused on The Cure.
