Bio

Uncommon Folk reimagines the songs that made America. The project was conceived by Producer/Artist Tim Sommer, with the help of co-producer/Artist Stuart Chatwood, and Dr. Jennifer Jo Brout. The debut record honors the tradition of American folk and protest song within a sonic landscape and engaging listening experience. 

The music is dramatic, spatial,and ethereal; high impact cinematic music that references the electric dreams and the dreamy electric music of the last 50 years.

Artists who have assisted in this project to date include Glen Campbell, Robin Zander, Blind Boys of Alabama, Mavis Staples, Jakob Dylan, Michael Brook, Ari Hest, Christopher Tignor.
