Tim McGowan has received rave reviews for his artistically beautiful instrumental compositions from many independent authorities. Although he has been involved with numerous melodic rock groups over the years, it is Tim's stirring, non-lyrical soundscapes that have continued to define him in the eyes of people everywhere.
Drawn from the glacial winters and hyperborean climes of his native Scotland, Tim now makes his home in the sunny American state of Florida, where he continues to create his evocative instrumental arrangements.
His music is receiving air- and stream-play on selected terrestrial and Internet radio stations around the world, winning the composer glowing reviews and numerous fans.
Tim's most recent collaboration is a return to his roots, and comes in the form of a melodic rock project called:
BURNING IN DECEMBER
-George Spelvin, George's Jungle
"Tim McGowan is a skilled soundscape artist. On his auspicious albums he uses piano, synthesizer, guitar, percussion and imagination to sculpt a series of vibrant musical objects that blend medieval themes with ambient textures. He offers us the best of both worlds.
The neat thing about McGowans albums is that he allows the listener to create their own version of events as his music unfolds....McGowans music is the perfect soundtrack for a Lawhead novel or just an adventure of the mind. He could be easily compared to David Arkenstone or Chris Spheeris, but retains his own unique method. Using simple song titles he permits us the pleasure as well as the challenge of writing our own stories. I like that."

Message from Tim:
Thank you for your interest in my music. The only words you will find in my instrumental music are in the title of each song which is the starting point, a hint of where the music is going. It is then up to you, the listener, to let the title of each piece start you off on a journey & help you explore your own inner thoughts, memories & dreams by letting the music take you to places that only you can go. I hope you enjoy listening to my music as much as I enjoy writing, recording & producing it.
