Singer-Songwriter, Composer, and Banjo Extraordinaire

We All Need Heroes by Tim Lake

We All Need Heroes

Release Date: 2005

The purpose of this singer-songwriter/banjo recording project is twofold. First, I wanted to create a collection of original songs that would address the spiritual issues that we all confront daily during these turbulent times. Therefore, there are four songs that are inspired by the events of what is now referred to as “9/11.” The series begins with “We All Need Heroes” (Track 4) and ends with “If Only I Was A Praying Man” (Track 7). The second objective of this recording is to explore the role of the banjo in American popular music. “It’s You” employees the four-string plectrum banjo in an early twentieth century style while unique five-string banjo accompaniments are juxtaposed with inventive solos such as the raucous banjo solo on “Who’s The Lord Get To Talk To?”
