Biography

Timber Timbre is a Canadian folk music project formed in 2005 and featuring Mika Posen, Simon Trottier and Taylor Kirk.

Their debut album “Cedar Shakes”, recorded in a farm house near Bobcaygeon, Ontario, was released in 2006. Hence the moniker Timber Timbre as an ode to the surroundings and the warm haunting sound of the album.

2007 saw the release of Medicinals, an album recorded by Kirk in his empty Toronto apartment. “Cedar Shakes came from driving around in fields, but I don’t think Medicinals reflects the city at all actually,” Kirk told the Kingston Whig Standard. “If anything, I think Medicinals is a more fetishization of the rural landscape because ultimately, that’s where I want to be.”

Medicinals was released on Shuffling Feet records, the Peterborough based label of Jonas Bonnetta (Evening Hymns), who also mastered the record.

Toronto’s Out of this Spark records released Timber Timbre’s third album in January of 2009.

    Who wants to start a petition to get Timber Timbre to score the new season of Twin Peaks? Can someone please send a Hot Dreams LP to David Lynch fucking ASAP?

    Hauntingly beautiful. Discovered them a year ago around Halloween, but kind of forgot about them until this Halloween season, when I heard "Run From Me" (great song) featured in a preview for the TV horror movie Big Driver. This the kind of music that really sets a spooky, but also dreamy, atmosphere.

    would like to know who is opening for them...I believe I'll be going in Ottawa. Hopefully someone that offers a little contrast while retaining a certain continuity. Maybe one of the many bands that will be in Montreal on the days bookending their date in Ottawa? Hint Hint....

    Timber Timbre, yes, originated in a timber-framed cabin, has found its way to the front lines of the folk music scene. Read all about the band here: http://blog.eventseeker.com/2014/05/29/featured-artist-timber-timbre/
