Tim Showalter, AKA Strand Of Oaks released one of the most gorgeous, beautiful and haunting records this year called Pope Killdragon. A fascinating story teller and creator of confessional acoustic based songs that are singular in voice and vision, Tim’s album originally came out through eMusic and is now available on Bandcamp. The album has received well deserved praise over the last couple months both locally and nationally and now Tim wants to put his album out on vinyl. You can help fund Tim’s initiative here by contributing to his Kickstarter campaign.
