While most artists are struggling during the pandemic and social distancing measures to try to stay in front of their fans and keep new content coming. Tim Atwood has found that he obviously was not sharing enough on socials before and has found a whole new fan base that he didn’t even know he had.
“My fan base has actually increased during this quarantine. I guess there’s more time for the fans to explore new music, said Atwood. “If I didn’t appreciate the full value of social media, I do now! I have done a few live stream concerts during these past months. One of those concerts has been viewed over a quarter of a million times. I also wrote a song called “The Non-Essential Worker Blues,” and my wife shot a little video of me singing the song in my living room. The last time I checked it had been viewed over 100,000 times. That blows my mind!”
When Tim is not working on his social media skills and connections, he has found some other pastimes to pass the time.
“Well, I love to cook, so I have been trying out some new recipes. I’m happy to share some cool, new dishes if you want to spice up your life,” said Atwood. “I’ve also been writing some new songs and working on my new album. I’m shooting for a late summer /early fall release date. I think this is some of the best work I’ve ever done. I hope the fans will agree.”
With the release of new music that he has taken time to right during this time, Atwood is ready for things to open back up so that he can get it out there in person.
“I never knew I was a Non-Essential worker until the government told me I was. I’m ready to be essential again,” said Atwood. “This is so socially incorrect for the new times we’re living in, but I plan to be out on the road again as soon as possible performing my music and hugging everyone I can. I’ve missed you guys!”
