Music Reviews


Tim Bays is a master song craftsman, a warm and likeable man, and a spirit-lifting performer. "Everyday Magic" lives up to its title. He is magic and so are his songs. Do yourself a favor and soak your soul in this one.

"Tim Bays, a stark raving mad singer whose hilarious talking songs are rivaled only by his beautiful ballads."
      -- Will Lester, THE COLUMBIA RECORD, Columbia, SC

"With purity of style and understated fervor, Tim Bays absorbed the attention of all the diverse audience. Die-hard romantics, cynics and music lovers beware - this man will capture your heart."
      -- Valerie deVries, THE DAILY NEWS-CHIEF, Winter Haven, FL

"Bays turned in an inspired, professional performance, treating the audience to songs which ranged from the deeply serious to the outrageously absurd. Reminiscent at times of John Prine, Steve Goodman and Gamble Rogers ... Bays is a storyteller with truths that come from within. What makes him special is the vivid descriptions of the characters and settings in his stories and songs. (Bays) is an intelligent, complex person who cares about his audience and his art."
      -- Nelson Ross, THE RED & BLACK, University of Georgia, Athens, GA

"He consistently wowed (Kerrville Folk Festival) audiences and rattled off one great song after another...his bedside manner made him a crowd favorite."
      -- Allen Rowoth, FOLK DIGEST #509, Liverpool, NY

"Tim Bays is not just any folksinger. He has a strong, rich voice and plays the guitar as if he's played forever. With his performance, the 'Tuesday Happenings' are elevated to new heights ... he enraptured the crowd."
     -- Pete Phillips, THE TECHNIQUE, Georgia Tech University, Atlanta, GA

"As a musician he is a versatile six string guitarist with blues, jazz and country influences. As a vocalist he is impressive and capable of many things - he finished one song in Al Jarreau fashion and a few songs later might have been Arlo Guthrie. And his lyrics leave you with that 'Gosh I wish I had put it that way' feeling."
      -- Jim Sughrue, COLUMBIA NITE LIFE, Columbia, SC

What Listeners Are Saying

Tim Bays has the gift of speaking simply about matters that really mean something to us, things as simple as love and as complicated as the Universe. With humility, humor and a profound sense of wonder, he asks the questions of Everyman, and reminds us that we already have all the information we need to live an abundant life.
      -- Lenna Schultz

"I Believe" was the first thought I had as I awoke this morning. We have set a goal and a time frame in which to achieve that goal. As I prepare to climb that mountain, "Everyday Magic" is an "essential" part of my climbing gear.
      -- Zodi & Neil Thornburg

What a great way to start the week! I got "Everyday Magic" today, started with "I Believe" ...and worked my way through to "Shine On." This is one fine piece of work, a pleasure to listen to.
