Tim Rhinock, 23, has slowly been working his way into the music business with gigs in Polk County, Florida. He has been described in Poke Magazine
, a local Indie music paper, as a young Bob Dylan by local director Walt Cannoy. Cannoy's unfinished "Ruining Purple" used one of Rhinock's songs.
"Tim is probably the next Bob Dylan," Cannoy says.
Tim told Digital Journal that his music can be described as acoustic new folk. The talented young man has taught himself to play the guitar, bass, mandolin, keyboards and drums.
He says his motivation for his lyrics comes out of the stories inside his mind.
"I don't write songs about myself but my observations about life and the people around me with my own added twist."
His latest song "Sweetness" will soon be on his My Space
page. Tim said that he's trying to go a different direction with this song and his new CD titled "The List."
Tim is realistic about the chances of making it in the world of music today.
"I'm being realistic, I know that the chances are very slim. There is an incredible talent pool for the record companies to go with. If I could make a living playing my music that would be nice but more importantly I like getting my thoughts out. Right now I want to enjoy the music. I want to be able to play in small venues so that people can connect to the lyrics."
Tim likes the old style at times while combining new elements to his songs. He would love it if in the future his CDs can be produced on vinyl but knows that is some time away.
He will be shopping his demo around later this winter to local recording companies. He hopes that he can get a label and tour in the future.
