From the land of the Georgia Pines comes Tim Brooks and the Alien Sharecroppers--a 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 runs 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 axe. Tim creates a plain
spoken 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 Magazine's 25th Anniversary Ulimate 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 Benny Mobley: harmonica, Kenny Walters: bass and vocals, Jonathan Randall: lead singer and acoustic guitar, Paul Thomas keyboards, 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 . . .
