WHO: Mary Timony

WHAT: Untame the Tiger

WHY: Timony might be considered a guitar goddess, but if that’s the case, she doesn’t let it on. Maybe it’s safer to say she’s a guitarist’s guitarist. That being said, anyone listening to her music can expect the guitar to be the highlight. Her newest solo record is the first one in over a decade and was written during tumultuous times: a breakup, and the loss of both her parents. But out of this pain grew something beautiful. Untame the Tiger has a playful, almost happy aura, as if Timony is celebrating the strength and wisdom she gained from her losses. You kind of just want to high five her and buy her a beer after each listen. It’s full of melodies, instrospection, jams, and yes, powerful guitars. Untame the Tiger has no business sounding this fun.
