Reminiscent of Green Day and Three Doors Down, Tumbler has it all. Lyrics, grooves, moves and addictive sound.
“Break The Fall” rolls out with a Folk Rock feel bearing deep and intense messages of the experience of being human. I enjoyed the story line it’s eye opening. The song opens with a burst of excitement to bring you in. Love the orchestral blend of horns and guitar.
This trio presents a strong take on family ties, new friends and values as well as integrating music as a way of life. They believe that music is not just a lyric or a cord but a journey.
“London Girl” has just a hint of folk rock with a twist of Blue Grass. It flows easy and expresses the mans true love for his “London Girl.” The song expresses how love remains even though we may not be exactly perfect for each other, our faults sometimes make us that more desirable.
Recorded in a small home studio in Epsom England called Dark Horse Studio, this album has so much to offer. It’s honest, true to life, and in your face reality. It expresses life from all aspects and how it’s ok to move on.
“Sleepy Banana’s Are Cool” to me musically is a lullaby and it’s one of the most beautiful lullaby’s I’ve ever heard. I sang it to my granddaughter and she’s hooked on it. The acoustic guitar is soothing and entices the little one to sleep. Beautiful song. Lyrically the words are telling the story of life and how we should let it flow and move on. For grown ups and older kids it expresses how things will change and life will flow along but we can still hold on to memories. Enjoy being a kid because we all grow up.
Richard Grace taught himself, from an early age, to play the guitar. Inspiration came from legends such as Paul Simon and Bob Dylan. After years of playing music with family and friends in pubs and folk clubs around his home town he decided he should give up the normal drudgery of day jobs and take his music on the road.
But the lifestyle would be unforgiving on the road and the toll was rough on his family. Divorce and heartache followed so he took time away from his dream, went home, got a full time job and settled down. After two marriages and six kids and lot’s of miracles along the way music held true, ex’s became close friends and the songs kept pouring out.
Harry Grace is son number 5 and a huge part of the group. His music is his life’s ambition and his commitment is solid. He believes in living a simple life and expressing his love of life with his music.
Dave Needham was a jewel found in a small home studio built in a shed that was once part of an old stable in a beautiful place called Epsom, England. He built the studio from scratch and the quality is golden. 70’s legend David Essex who made recording history with “That’ll Be The Day” recorded in this same studio. Dave knows his business inside and out and is committed to quality and excellence. Richard and Harry knew when they met Dave that they had met a strong link in the future of their music.
Recording one or two songs was out of the question, they recorded a full album and began looking into what it takes to get the music out the world. CD Baby was a God send. Finding the name for the group was an important step. It had to be unique and it had to be something that would catch the attention of music listeners around the world. They wanted to keep the name tied to the simplicity of the folk sound and feel; Tumbler was born.
