Monolith Agency is excited to present Strand Of Oaks! We’ve been following the career of Timothy Showalter for the last few years, and we couldn’t be happier with the success he and his band are experiencing. Strand Of Oaks 2014 release Heal has received massive accolades worldwide, and recently has been placed on a multitude of ‘Best Of 2014′ lists including Paste Magazine, American Songwriter, KEXP (Seattle), and more.
Strand Of Oaks has built his reputation with a no-holds-barred songwriting approach. However, musically and sonically Heal takes it a step farther with unabashed Crazy Horse-esque guitar solos, arena rock drum sounds, and layers of 80’s style synths. In a 2014 review of Heal, Spin Magazine writes, “HEAL finds Showalter taking big, bold steps”. About Showalter’s songwriting, A.V. Club states, “The lyrics are honest and direct, filled with self-deprecating admissions and delivered with the steady hand that can make simplicity sound like poetry.”
