With its warm acoustic rock feel, Baltimore, Md.-based Lockemy’s latest EP “Kingdoms” is an instant classic.
Singer and songwriter Tim Lockemy has been involved in music for decades. Eary on, he acted as frontman and guitarist for Ten Penny Thread, a band heavily influenced by 90’s classics like Alice in Chains, Dream Theater, and Soundgarden. As he matured as a songwriter, he found inspiration in 80’s British artists like Depeche Mode, Tears for Fears, Seal, and The Cure. Lockemy made his solo debut with his EP “Standing Alone” in 2005, releasing a number of tracks since that time.
“Kingdoms,” released amidst the coronavirus pandemic, features just five songs and runs twenty minutes, yet offers a timeless feel. The blend of rock, indie, and acoustic compliment each other to build hard, yet delicate tracks. His songs feel like watching a live show, right from the comfort of your own device.
Fans of Tears for Fears or R.E.M should check out Lockemy’s music, for its classic influences and vibrant sound.
