HUNTINGTON BEACH...Huntington Beach resident, Tim Bennett's upcoming new record, The View From Here is releasing August 11 and the Record Release party will be held in Thursday, August 10th @ Campus Jax 8-10 p.m., No Cost, 3950 Campus Drive, Newport Beach. 

Tim Bennett is the former lead of Whistler's Father who recorded one album, Highly Irregular (2015). Since then, Bennett has gone on to record two solo albums, Inevitable Discovery (2016) and now the country-rock album, The View From Here.

Straddling country rock, The View From Here employs the same musicians that Bennett met while working with Whistler's Father. "That project took a year and a half," said Bennett. "What I got from that experience was a great place to record, Custom Taylored Studios, and a great group of session musicians that I fondly refer to as 'The Demolitionists'. These guys were pitched to me as today's 'Wrecking Crew' and they have certainly lived up to that comparison."

Recording in January and February, 2017 Bennett wanted more uptempo and mid-tempo songs for The View From Here. As a result, the album has a few more songs that rock than his previous endeavors but never lets go of it's country roots. 

 Highly Irregular (Whistler's Father) received global airplay and hit both the Roots Music Chart and Americana chart when it was released. The band was selected as the Folk Alley "Open Mic Featured Artist" and the BBC's Marie Crichton noted the album had "A mean bit of harmonica". Bennett's 1st solo record, Inevitable Discovery received great praise, as well, with ISA Radio France's Mike Penard declaring that, "His personal Americana brings an original touch."

 The View From Here, establishes Bennett's place in the Americana genre and sees the artist hitting his stride.
