Tim Isberg Releases Third Album Running on the Edge
Singer, songwriter, soldier and storyteller Tim Isberg, is celebrating the release of his latest album, Running on the Edge, February 22, 7 PM at the Norwood Legion (11150 82 Street NW).
Running on the Edge is inspired by adventures both from around the world and around the human heart. The advance single Yesterday is a poignant testament to veterans: their memories, their pain, their joy, and the yearning to return to say goodbye. A decades-old live recording of solo cellist Valery Volkov – Tim’s father-in-law who died in 2007 – performance with the Syrian National Symphony, comes alive as part of the intriguing Baghdad Cafe. And, the rootsy sound of Learned A Lot and Highway Two speak to growing up in rural Alberta, and the toils of driving a certain highway.
This is Tim’s third full length album, and follows his sophomore ‘Tears Along The Road’ album selected as a Top 25 Favourite by Music Canada. Produced by Miles Wilkinson, Running on the Edge features Marc Ladouceur on guitar & mandolin, Jeff Bradshaw on pedal steel and dobro, Mike Lent on bass, Brendan Lyons on drums, and Stewart MacDougall on keys.
Tickets for Tim Isberg’s Running on the Edge CD Release Party are $20, available online at YegLive or in person at Myhre’s Music (8735 118 Ave). This performance is being presented by the Uptown Folk Club.
