Tim Carr

In his 20-year career as a San Francisco-based musician, independent recording artist Sean Hayes has won acclaim from fans and critics alike. He has duetted with Aimee Mann; toured with Ani DiFranco and the Cold War Kids; been covered by the Be Good Tanyas and remixed by D.J. Mark Farina; and has his music featured in a variety of television shows, films, and commercials.

Low Light, the eighth album by Hayes, captures his distinctive sound at its most intimate. Recorded both at home and in the studio, Low Light weaves its way through genres, incorporating the pulse and yearning of R&B with the low-fi grit and crackle of folk. From the gauzy, beat-driven title track to the aching, old-school country “Sing Me Your Love Song,” Hayes’s voice glides between a growling purr and seductive vibrato, transporting the listener to a rich, sensual, late-night world.

Tim Carr is a Los Angeles-based multi-instrumentalist, producer, and composer. His music is inspired by African rhythms, melodies of the French Romantics, and 1960's pop. Carr received a BFA from California Institute of the Arts and was featured on their Capitol Records CD for three consecutive years. As the former drummer for HAIM and a current member of the bands The Americans and Fell Runner, Carr has recorded with T Bone Burnett, performed on the Late Show With David Letterman, and is featured in the upcoming documentary American Epic. Carr’s debut solo record was released in the fall of 2014 under the Moorworks label in Japan. He recorded and self-produced the album, and plays all of the instruments.
