What’s The Story about Tim Moxam?
Moxam recruited a who’s who in Toronto’s music scene for his 2016 album Soft Summer: former bandmates, Adrian Cook (guitar) and Tony McKnight (bass) of Great Bloomers, Joshua Van Tassel (drums) of Great Lake Swimmers, and Lemon Bucket Orkestra’s Christopher Weatherstone (saxophone.) The songstresses Ivy Mairi (The Weather Station, Bruce Peninsula) and Raffa Weyman (RALPH and formerly Queen of the Fleet) provided accompanying vocals on several tracks. The album was recorded, mixed and produced by Chris Stringer, who has worked with Timber Timbre, Ohbijou, The Wooden Sky and Gentlemen Reg, among countless others. In 2016 Tim shared the stage with The Strumbellas, Donovan Woods, Coeur de Pirate, to name a few. His single Harvest For The Queen was #63 on CBC Radio 2’s Top 100 Songs of 2016 and #76 on CBCMusic’s Essential Songs of 2016.
