Judy Dyble’s Talking with Strangers album (which was co-produced by Tim with Alistair Murphy) is #5 in the Top 50 releases of the year in the Astra Club radio station top 50, and also appeared in the HMV Top Specialist Album Of 2009 list.
Talking with Strangers also appeared in the ‘best of 2009’ lists for Jo Kendall & Sid Smith in the February edition of Classic Rock Presents Prog. Rich Wilson chose No- Man’s Wherever There Is Light in his list.
Plans for this year (so far):
- Co-production and co-writing on a new Judy Dyble album
- A new album with Peter Chilvers, Michael Bearpark and Steve Bingham. Probably a Burning Shed label release, under the Samuel Smiles name
- Memories Of Machines with Giancarlo Erra and several special guests
- A guest appearance on Stefano Panunzi’s new solo album, A Rose (also featuring Thomas Leer, Theo Travis and Mick Karn)
The Tonefloat label night for 2010 will focus on the zone between songs and sounds, and features a full Tim Bowness set. Tim’s band will feature Peter Chilvers (piano), Michael Bearpark (guitar) and Steve Bingham (violin, string loops), and the performance will consist of a selection of no-man, Samuel Smiles and Bowness solo material.
The gig takes places at the Paradox, Tilburg, The Netherlands, on 28th April 2010.
Tickets can be purchased from the Tonefloat Store.
