Here is an article that is currently on the Canadian Country Music Association website. www.ccma.org
On the Horizon...
It's hard enough to break through in the Canadian Country Music Industry, let alone reinvent the genre altogether. Ok, well maybe he's not quite reinventing Country music, but Tim Toutant's unique brand of rocking Country is certainly not something that you would have heard at a concert ten years ago; if you ask any of his fans, you likely wouldn't have experienced a show like his either.
So whose music compares to the distinctive style that characterizes Tim's sound? His answer: "No one". Well actually, according to Tim, his music is an amalgamation of all of his favorite artists, (Garth Brooks and Keith Urban to name a few). He doesn't deliberately try to emulate their sound, but rather, strives to capture the entertainment qualities of their showmanship. The result is a truly original performance, and a sound to match.
With such innate talent, one might wonder what drew Tim to pursue a career in country music. It all started at the age of 19 when his friend invited him to a night of uninhibited opportunities at a karaoke bar. Although he had been singing since the age of 5, Tim's performance experience on the stage was limited. However, his inexperience was rendered irrelevant by his powerful voice and energetic stage presence. For Tim, "It's all about entertaining", and his fans couldn't agree more.
Putting on a good show is one thing, writing and recording original material however, is quite another. But Tim is no stranger to challenging trials: "my niece passed away at three months and I was devastated; I stopped performing for three years after that. Then suddenly something miraculous happened. I was on the first hole of the Prince Albert Golf course when I was inspired to just get into the recording studio." And the result was a passionately propelled album, which was dedicated to the very person who provoked Tim's triumphant return to the Country music scene. You never know what might come of a tragedy.
Now that we know where his inspiration to record was derived, where does Tim find the material to write about? The answer was no shock: "I write about life; most of the songs on my album are about things that have happened to me. I've experienced every one of those songs." A lot of his co-writes are also reflective of his life. "Co-writing is a truly rewarding process through which I share my stories with other writers, and together, we translate it into a song." You might say that every track reveals a little bit of Tim's personality- what a great way to get to know someone.
With his high level of energy and enthusiasm, Tim makes it clear that he loves to entertain. "I'm not in it for the money and I'm not in it for my own benefit. I'm in it to make at least one out of those hundreds of people in the audience leave satisfied by a great show." Tim loves the challenge, and his fans love him for that alone . . . oh yeah, not to mention his music is great as well!
Having taken the last three years promoting and playing all over Saskatchewan and Alberta, Tim has certainly stamped his name on the new up and coming stars of country music. With his high energy, non-stop rock country performances, you can guarantee he will light a fire that can't be put out, wherever the venue. Writing, singing and performing are his passions and have been since he started singing over 15 years ago. In the past 3 years he has completed a 12 song CD with Canadian born Producer and performer Steve Fox, written dozens of new songs, performed with the likes of Johnny Reid in Rabbit Lake and played many other events. His goal is to leave the fans wanting more and from the looks of things, He's not going to slow down. Look out Canadian Country Music, Tim Toutant is on his way up!
