Timothy Davey - Piano Player/Composer

I have been a piano player for nearly 40 years, and while I play in a number of bands which range in style from rock to jazz, I have always felt most comfortable just sitting at a piano and playing solo.

I especially like the responsibility for what comes out when you are on your own - and you can dictate the pace, the style, the leaps and jumps, the highs and lows, and just talk with and to and through the piano...

In 2001, I independently released my debut CD of original solo piano pieces - Uncovered Keys - and in 2005 released my second CD - Scenes from the Neighbourhood. Recently, I have just released my third CD, 'The Weight of Time'.

My own influences have really been guitarists - Leo Kottke, Doc Watson and most Bluegrass styles - although I don't think it intrudes too much into my playing that is where I always am in my head - trying to create a Bluegrass sound.

'Uncovered Keys', 'Scenes from the Neighbourhood' and 'The Weight of Time' are available through the CD Baby website at www.cdbaby.com.

New Sheet Music Available! - December 26, 2008

A new Sheet Music Book, 'Timothy Davey – Piano Solos' is now available from Lulu.com! It includes 5 tracks… 'The Weight of Time', 'Distant Starlight', 'Out Walking', 'I Have A Notion' and 'Everything’s OK'… PLUS a bonus of 'The Windmill Interludes' that are only available in this book. All are complete tracks just as you hear them on my CDs… Thank you to Michael Dulin for transcribing these pieces so accurately! And to Kathy Parsons for her eagle eyes in proof-reading them.

From the introduction to 'Piano Solos'…
"The music in this collection was never intended to be played by others. It was written as an expression of one man’s consciousness and recorded as an attempt to capture that intention at a moment in time that might make it communicable to others.

The first thing I noticed about these transcriptions was that they were a profound gift to the composer – they are living statements that can speak to other musicians directly through their eyes – they give 'sight' to the audio images heard through the CDs.

I hope those of you using these notations will enjoy the same thrill the composer experienced in being given back his creations in a form that makes them always accessible and identities in their own right."

'The Weight of Time' and 'I Have A Notion' have also recently been released individually, as have the other three tracks that have been available for a while… All are available at Lulu.com. at http://stores.lulu.com/timothyd. Or check out the individual links on the Products page of this website!

My sheet music scores are available for purchase and download in PDF format. Each title is $3.95 individually, or you can buy the Sheet Music Book for $14.95. Once purchased, you will be able to immediately download the file. Once you purchase and download the sheet music, please respect copyright and do not share, trade or distribute the PDF files on the Internet. Doing so undermines my ability to create more sheet music. The downloads you purchase are intended for your personal use only.

If there’s a song you'd like to see made available as sheet music, contact me on the Contact page of this website & let me know! Hope you enjoy playing these for now…

'The Weight of Time' gives RJ Lannan from New Age Reporter a "Period of Buoyancy"... - October 28, 2008

Timothy's latest CD, ‘The Weight of Time’ gets another extremely favourable review from New Age Reporter’s RJ Lannan, entitled a "Period of Buoyancy"...

“This new album is full of long, thought out progressions, pensive moments and lots of mood altering music. There seems to be an overwhelming sense of urgency in the music represented by some serious jazz impressions... Timothy further entertains us with his copious observations in the liner notes of the album. Quotes, poetry, photographs and soliloquizing prose give us insight into the heart and mind of the musician. Because it is there is not a simple explanation as to why we climb the mountain. Climb the mountain he did and this is a bountiful chronicle of the journey by a dedicated artist.”

“The Weight of Time is as much a musical narrative of Timothy’s life as it is of our own. It is the bell shaped curve of our lives, the hills that we have climbed and the shaking of the fists when we reached the top. It is also the downhill journey that we take as we reflect on the paths we have chosen, the lovers and friends we have met along the way and the perhaps more importantly, what is next. What will time allow?”

'The Weight of Time' has impressed Bill Binkelman from New Age Reporter, who says it is Timothy's "best album to date."! - June 29, 2008

Long-time reviewing icon Bill Binkelman who is now writing for NewAgeReporter.com highly recommends Timothy’s new CD ‘The Weight of Time’. He says...

"On Australian pianist Timothy Davey’s third album, he continues to display his singular take on solo piano music, music which is unlike anything I’ve heard since I started reviewing. He does this without sacrificing accessibility, warmth or melody."

"In addition, The Weight of Time may be the most beautiful album “package” I’ve ever seen. The cover is a work of art and that’s just scratching the surface."

"He plays with a breezy yet sophisticated self-assuredness no matter what the mood or style is... This is his best album to date and a real treat for those who are looking for more than standard new age or adult contemporary piano music... Highly Recommended!"
