The music of Tim Pourbaix (pronounced 'pour-bay') is that secret worth sharing.  That rare artist, whose voice and song craft sound instantly familiar.  A master solo performer from the backroom parlors of Brooklyn steps forward with a fully articulated, fourteen song, full-band masterpiece entitled, River Well.  Simply elegant in their construction, Tim's songs paint a dreamscape worth multiple visits.

Pourbaix has performed at CMJ, SXSW and has music placed in two indie films, Lonely Boys (2016) and Sweet Parents (2017).  On his journey from stage to stage, Tim has opened up shows for Donovan Woods, Dan Layus, Esme Patterson, Shovels & Rope, Gregory Alan Isakov and Nathaniel Rateliff.

“At first listen, Tim Pourbaix’s music feels easily accessible, even cheery at times. With a deeper examination, though, it’s obvious that the Brooklyn singer-songwriter evokes similar complexity to that of artists like Elliott Smith or Bon Iver. Adding a new layer to the listening experience, Pourbaix paints an elaborate, yet delicate, picture for the listener.” DIFFUSER.FM

“His command of dynamics and unique vocals are two key elements of his songwriting and stage presence that immediately hooks you.” THANKFOLKFORTHAT.COM

“Pourbaix’s River Well has the makings of an immediate indie classic.” TREMR.COM
