At 4:15 PM each Tuesday, WERS brings you our On The Verge segment which highlights an artist we think is up-and-coming. This week’s artist On The Verge is Boston’s very own Tim Gearan.
Singer-songwriter Tim Gearan has been a staple of the Boston music scene for over 20 years. He was raised in New York and has performed nationally and abroad with artists like Kris Delmhorst, Toni Lynn Washington and Susan Tedeschi, performing on Tedeschi’s Grammy-nominated debut album Just Won’t Burn in 1998. After 10 years of touring with Washington as a sideman guitarist Gearan moved to Somerville with his wife and daughter. Since then he’s performed all over the Greater Boston Area with many other important local musicians at notable venues like the Paradise Rock Club, the Lizard Lounge and Club Passim, often to a full house. Even today he is continuing a weekly residency at Atwood’s Tavern in Cambridge that’s lasted for years, playing every Friday afternoon at 4pm. Gearan has also garnered praise from the Boston Globe, received the Unsung Hero award at the 2004 Boston Music Awards as well as numerous other BMA nominations, and established an extremely dedicated global fanbase that displays its dedication through covers, video tributes, and even tattoos! His 5th and latest album Riverboat, recorded at Q Division Studios in Somerville and produced by BMI nominee Ed Valauskus (Eli “Paperboy” Reed, The Click 5, The Dirty Truckers), was released last May.
Tune in this Tuesday at 4:15 pm to hear an exclusive in-studio performance and interview from Tim Gearan only on 88.9 WERS.
