Timothy B. Schmit (ex. Eagles) — Leap of Faith (September 23rd, 2016)

      Timothy B. Schmit (ex. Eagles) — Leap of Faith Timothy B. Schmit (ex. Eagles) — Leap of Faith (September 23rd, 2016)••→   Schmit dokazuje, že je víc než ochoten porušit pravidla žánru. Sixth studio album. Singer~songwriter with Eagles and Poco, sang lead on “I Can’t Tell You Why.” A mix of Americana, California country, bluegrass, rock and soul, this new solo music served as catharsis after Glenn Frey’s death. LEAP OF FAITH, the new 12~track solo album from Timothy B. Schmit, is out today. Listen to Leap of Faith by the groundbreaking vocalist, songwriter and bass player from the legendary rock groups Eagles and Poco in its entirety, on Rolling Stone Country and purchase the album via iTunes or Amazon. Exclusive Leap of Faith CD bundles are also available for pre–order in Timothy’s Official Online Store, including a T~Shirt and hat.
••→   Illuminated by an array of fine musicians and singers, Leap of Faith plays like a multicolored corona around Schmit’s distinctive artistry. From the jaunty opening track “My Hat” to the soaring harmonies and heartfelt reflections of “This Waltz,” this is more than another album in a great artist’s catalog. Writing and recording between touring with the Eagles, the songs on Leap of Faith have a broad compass. “Slow Down” is a note to self on escaping life’s pressures coasting along on a reggae pulse sweetened by jazz giant Gary Burton’s vibraphone, while “What I Should Do” has a Muscle Shoals feel; steamy, funky, and sensual. On “Goodbye, My Love,” he takes us deep down into traditional country with Paul Franklin’s glistening steel guitar layered over the changes. And on “It’s Alright,” his most intimate song, Schmit needs only his own acoustic guitar to express profound love.Birth name: Timothy Bruce Schmit

••→   Timothy B. Schmit will release his first solo album since 2009’s Expando next month. Leap of Faith is due on Sept. 23 and marks the Eagles bassist’s sixth LP since 1984’s solo bow, Playin’ It Cool. Schmit recorded the album in his Los Angeles studio and co–produced it with engineer Hank Linderman. According to a press releases on his website, Leap of Faith will contain a “mix of rock, country, Americana, R&B and even a bit of reggae.”
••→   “Again, I wanted to write this album on my own,” Schmit says. “In any collaboration one has to make a series of compromises. That’s not a bad thing, it’s simply not what I’ve chosen to do with this project. I’m just putting it out there, and maybe some of these ideas might resonate with listeners.”
••→   Tracks on the album include “My Hat,” “This Waltz,” “Slow Down” and “What I Should Do.” “I don’t feel confined by any outside perceptions about what I do,” Schmit says of the songs. “I just try to pull songs out of the ethers and shape them as they come, whatever the genre.”
••→   With the Eagles now over following the death of co–founder Glenn Frey in January, Schmit seems ready to resume his solo career. “Over the last 10 years or so, I’ve felt like I’m finally getting the hang what it is I do best,” Schmit notes. “Although this project took some time to complete, this is what I came up with. … This is who I am.”Review

••→   “I’m never prepared for the weight of this room. . . or for hanging out with an Eagle,” Jack Ingram told the crowd halfway through this week’s Americana Honors & Awards ceremony, minutes after sharing the onstage podium with Timothy B. Schmit.
••→   Like Don Henley, who hit the same stage last year to perform a song from the solo album Cass County, Schmit was in town not only to honor the newest generation of roots musicians, but to whip up attention for his own music. He’s been working on his newest record, Leap of Faith, for years, finding time to poke and prod at its 11 songs — all originals, and all featuring the familiar voice of the Eagles’ resident flower~child folksinger — during gaps in the Eagles’ tour dates.
••→   Things went slowly until this January, when Glenn Frey’s passing left Schmit at home, shocked and in desperate need of musical distractions. He recorded Leap of Faith there, in a home studio once planned as an art space for his wife. With the Santa Monica Mountains in the distance and a patch of state–protected Californian wilderness stretched outside the front door, Schmit created a soundtrack for that sort of pitch–perfect American landscape, mixing bluegrass, Cajun, rock, Seventies soul and California country into the same track list.
••→   Leap of Faith is an Americana album, in other words, delivered by an elder statesman who’s been laying the brickwork for Americana’s existence since the 1970s. Schmit is no newcomer. No cosmic~cowboy wannabe. Rather than focus on proving his country credentials, he sticks to the Schmit–ian basics on Leap of Faith, singing the songs with a gentle, unhurried voice that’s more tailored to peaceful easy feelings than life in the fast lane.
••→   Released today, Leap of Faith marks Schmit’s first solo release since 2009’s Expando, which found him welcoming Van Dyke Parks, Graham Nash, Dwight Yoakam and others into his home studio. Parks makes a return appearance this time around, playing accordion on the bluegrass tune “Red Dirt Road,” while Al Jardine’s sons stack their harmonies throughout “The Island,” a Beach Boys–worthy to the Kokomo lifestyle. Co–produced by Hank Linderman, who helped helm the Eagles’ Long Road Out of Eden, Leap of Faith is the first Eagles–affiliated release since Frey’s passing. ♠   http://www.rollingstone.com/Personal life:
