Timothy Craig’s songs show a well-studied craftsman and are produced and performed with professional prowess. The mandolin- driven “Don’t Walk Away” even had some of us humming its hook an hour after hearing it. “Crime of the Century”’s handclapping vitality and clever wordplay and the Steve Earle-like boom of “Flesh ‘n’ Blood” are also appreciated. Unfortunately, though he is a savvy songwriter, Craig is simply not a lead singer. In fact, on each recording the brawny confidence of his backup players makes his own lead vocal seem timid by comparison. We advise this artist to relinquish the mic––hire a lead singer who can bring more power and kick-ass authority to his deserving material.
