From the land of the Georgia Pines comes Tim Brooks and the Alien Sharecroppers'
band that brings to the world a blues-infused flashback of classic rock and roll iced
with new twists and turns that will help take this idiom to the new millennium.
Their performances consist of a diverse collection of original songs with a sprinkling
of obscure cover tunes that run the gamut from hip-shakin’ soul to pure guts rock
and roll touching on everything in between with their trademark funky style.
Tim Brooks is the man behind the scorching ax. Tim creates a plainspoken but
cutting edge sound without sacrificing the country-tinged music of his roots. The
Sharecroppers may be the “new kids” in town, but they have been around the
block--musically speaking. Their musical philosophy through the years has led to
them blowing away average, status-quo contenders and developing themselves as a
low down, funked--out unit that shuns comparisons.
Tim Brooks’ guitar prowess has earned him the recognition of hopeful young
guitarists and seasoned veterans. He received international exposure when he took
the grand prize in Guitar Player Magazines 25th Anniversary Ultimate Guitar
Competition for his home studio version of “Made From Scratch”, a blazing two
plus minutes of other worldly slide guitar. This honor allowed him to share the stage
at the Warfield Theater in ‘Frisco with some of the best guitar killers in the music
biz today including Steve Morse, Jeff “Skunk” Baxter, Ry Cooder, Adrian Belew,
John Lee Hooker, Gregg Allman and others.
The Alien Sharecroppers have built a wide following across the USA and Europe,
with each of them gathering status individually before teaming up with Tim earlier
this year. The Sharecroppers are Kenny Walters, bass and vocals, Jonathan Randall,
lead singer and acoustic guitar, Paul Thomas, keys, and Anthony J. Walker, drums
and vocals--all experienced, dynamic musicians in their own right.
Tim, who has played with Muddy Waters, Gatemouth Brown, Dickey Betts,
Tinsley Ellis, The Dregs, and a host of other name acts, is creating rock and roll for
the new century--come along for the ride “WHERE LOW DOWN MEETS FAR
