ME/YOU
Tim Walker
(Rhythmethod)

As a point of reference only, Tim Walker's debut could so easily be the follow-up album Avalanche City is yet to make. 

They are both superior craftsman in the art of songwriting, which is almost a forgotten skill in the digital age. 

The apparently "buffed" Walker is all polish throughout Me/You where songs such as Lullabies, Heartbeat, Kiss Me Baby and It Hurts The Heart deliver uncomplicated sing-along sentiments in such a beguiling way that you find yourself humming along to your own inner karaoke singer. 

That's not meant to belittle Walker but rather suggest that much like Damien Rice, the artist he says has influenced him more than any other, he has that uncanny ability to turn an intimate observation into a conversation.
