CROSS-POLLINATION LIX - TUES JUL 19TH - 7:30-10 PM
TIM BLANE
THE ANIMATORS

Tim Blane is a Boston based singer/songwriter. His music has the melodic flow of mainstream pop, the harmonic nuance of jazz, and the lyrical honesty of country. Blane's sound brings to mind artists like Jason Mraz, Ryan Adams, Peter Gabriel and Lyle Lovett. He has performed all over the east coast, opening for national acts like The Verve Pipe, The Push Stars, and Virginia Coalition. In 2005 Tim debut album was released produced by Chris Keup (Jason Mraz, Josh Kelley, Rachel Yamagata) and engineered by Stewart Myers (Shawn Colvin, Jason Mraz, Lifehouse, Agents of Good Roots.)

The Animators create savvy, insightful songs that are both sophisticated and accessible, intelligent and full of heart. Their inventive arrangements extend the pop palette to include such unusual textures as accordion, glockenspiel and cajon. Their confident sound evokes Coldplay and Simon & Garfunkel, the Postal Service and the Police. But for all their eclecticism and depth, the Animators never fail to deliver big choruses, undeniable melodies, and sticky hooks. Filter Magazine: "A truly great duo of modern popsters..."
