Let go, jump in the river of Snider’s sonic strings, lush backdrops and introspective lyrics. World folk hybrid aimed at the heart, the head and the feet is his target, and his aim is true. Playing with unbridled energy, intensity, and musical eclecticism, Snider loops the electric violin, guitar, cajun, and vocals to create aural landscapes that are forceful, confessional, and raw.
Inspired by his grandmother’s musical legacy, Snider played violin from a very early age. Classical music was his first entree into his instrument. He later went on to explore classic rock, blues, folk, funk, metal and grunge.
Today, Snider lives in Portland where he plays a solo show that layers his stylistic violin, guitar, percussion and vocals into a textured, inspiring experience.
See Tim Snider perform October 6, in the fourth edition of Local Spins. Concerts are held every Tuesday evening at 6:30 through mid-November in the elegant lobby bar of the historic Armory in the Pearl District.
