The Old Church
The Historic Old Church present Amber Rubarth with Tim Snider.
"She has developed a unique gift of knocking down walls with songs so strong they sound like classics from another era." -ACOUSTIC GUITAR MAGAZINE
"Part of the new old-soul generation." -THE HUFFINGTON POST
Grand prize winner of NPR's prestigious Mountain Stage New Song Contest, Amber Rubarth writes songs with a courageous vulnerability so personal that it touches the universal. Produced by Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Norah Jones, Kings of Leon), the album debuted at No. 13 on iTunes' songwriter chart and features duets with Jason Reeves and Jason Mraz.
Rubarth has toured extensively throughout the US, Europe and Japan including appearances at Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln Center Atrium, sharing stages with many eminent artists including Emmylou Harris, Loudon Wainwright III, Jason Mraz, Kenny Loggins, Colin Hay, Dave Eggar and Lisa Loeb. Her songs have attracted enthusiastic praise from NPR, The Huffington Post, BBC Radio and Acoustic Guitar Magazine, and a live recording at legendary Sun Studios now airing nationwide on PBS.
Rubarth also composes for films, most recently working with Paul Brill for the highly acclaimed Sundance Film Festival winner Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work. She also collaborates with Alex Wong as one half of Brooklyn buzz band The Paper Raincoat, an iTunes Indie Spotlight chosen as Paste Magazine's "Best of What's Next."

"Unbridled energy, intensity, and musical eclecticism. Tim Snider plays and loops the electric violin, guitar, cajon, and vocals creating aural landscapes that are forceful, confessional, and raw. Coming from Reno, Nevada, Tim picked up the violin when he was just three years old. Over the years exposure to rock music, songwriters, like Ben Harper and Paul Simon, inspired him to play the guitar. His sojourns in Spain and Cuba introduced flamenco, salsa, and Afro-Cuban rhythms into his repertoire. His music can be described as a world-folk-jazz hybrid that is aimed at the heart, the brain, and the feet".
