Sometimes, good music pops up where you least expect it. Case in point: Tim Miner. In his first album in '84 and his second in '88, he was just another white soulster-wanna-be. But Miner was hatching major plans plans, involving a recording studio that would serve as a spiritual centre for the development of Dallas-area Christian artists, and to spread the gospel. Two years later, there's a tidal wave of artists coming out of this Dallas scene, including Angie Alan, Cindy Cruse, Margaret Bell, 'Bubbles' Bruce, Bernard Wright, the Winans Sisters 'triangle', and the Street Church Academy folks like MC R.G., Ge-Gee, and the late Danny 'D-Boy' Rodriguez. And now a more mature 26-year-old Tim Miner has learned how to move his voice in a manner not unlike Michael Jackson or Stevie Wonder, or, most precisely, fellow Frontline soulster Jon Gibson. He evokes feelings and exposes his soul...matching vocal movements and tones to the needs of the lyric and the tune where Gibson tends to slip off into vocal gymnastics. Miner succeeds on many of his new songs, especially on 'Walked Across My Heart' (a wonderful upbeat song of confidence, with a D-Boy rap) and 'Yesterday' (a mellow song he wrote for his mother, sung a la Michael McDonald). Then, there is 'Don't Let It Slide', which calls on an unidentified Christian artist to listen to God and not the people around him. Or, 'I Can't Take It', wherein the Miner of ten years ago finds out he can no longer escape God nor God's call. On 'Tell Me' Miner falls back on the overused theme of telling Satan off, and further misses by electronically distorting an otherwise good vocal. In 'Supercal', Mark Stitts lays some real hot rock guitar licks into the mix of a good soul song. With this album, Tim Miner serves notice that he is not going to relax from making true popular pop/dance music for Christ. He, like Peacock and the Winans, are now ready with a full-blooded popular urban sound that can stand up to the rigors of radio overexposure without yielding to triteness - great news, if you like that sound as much as I do.

I have had the pleasure of meeting Tim Miner, and have been listening to his music for over 30 years. He is by far one of the best vocalist and songwriters of all time, Christian or otherwise. His music moves me like no one else. I wish he would make more music. He made one Christmas song years ago and it was one of the best he's ever done so far. I've tried to encourage him to make a Christmas album. Most artist have one or two good songs on a album, but it's all good with Tim Miner. He can't sing anything bad. He opens his mouth and gold pours out. I love this brother.

Tim Miner is an incredibly gifted artist. He's been around for quite a while. I have the pleasure of knowing him personally - and professionally. He is one who truly lives what he preaches (sings).
For those who have never experienced Tim Miner music, you're missing out. For those who ARE familiar with Tim - well, you already know what a blessing his music truly is.
Check out the new cd. It's awesome!!!

I knew Tim when he was a small child and was a good friend of his mother's when his parents were evengelizing in areas around Monroe, LA. My husband use to pitch baseballs to Tim in my parents front yard when Tim was only about 4 years old. He could really hit those balls. His voice is almost as if I am listening to his dad sing who had one of the most beautiful voices I ever heard.
