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...
