Weary traveler returns to Sooke

The year was 1993: a Berkeley band called The Counting Crows had released their debut album, August and Everything After. It was this epic album that ignited Tim Lindberg’s love and passion for music. With his new found inspiration, Lindberg followed in the footsteps of many musical predecessors before him and pursued a life filled with song. The result: the mainstay indie band, Doubting Paris.

Lindberg’s six year stint as the lead singer of Doubting Paris helped bring the band global exposure and critical acclaim. They have graced audiences all across Canada, the United States, and Denmark with their soul-baring, raw sound. After making two albums the Doubting Paris bandmates decided it was time to pursue their individual dreams.

With a journal full of songs and the support of friends and family, Tim Lindberg set out to create an album based on an essentially personal epithet, Love Songs for the Weary Traveller.

“The title of the album is where it all started. I wrote each song stemming from the title; it is my reality. A transient lifestyle for a family man can beat you down. Writing this album allowed me to stay close to my family while being miles apart,” says Lindberg.

A gifted lyrical storyteller, Lindberg’s music paints an earnest picture that universally resonates with people. His lyrics are strewn with images of hope, love, loss, and abandonment, and yet, despite the personal nature of his music, he invites his listeners to go with him on the intimate journey. This rare combination of honesty and raw emotion makes him one of the most captivating artists to arise from British Columbia in years.

“I also just returned from playing two showcases at this year’s SXSW (South by South West) in Austin, Texas to audiences of 600 to 1,000 people each night where my music was very well received. And for one more tidbit of knowledge, I have frequently visited Sooke for  the past 12 years, and love the town immensely, which makes playing there all the more special,” said Lindberg.

Tim Lindberg is playing at the Sooke Harbour House on Friday, May 20, the show starts at 7 p.m., tickets are available at sookeharbourhouse.com/tim-lindberg. There are only 75 seats available.
