Named “Residency King of the Hub, and said to be “just too talented to remain a local hero,” by The Boston Globe; Tim Gearan, the Boston based singer-songwriter was awarded Unsung Hero at the Boston Music Awards in 2004, as well as Best Ongoing Residency in 2012 and continues to be nominated for BMAs today.
After 10 years of touring nationally and abroad as a sideman guitarist for Toni Lynn Washington, Gearan settled down in Somerville, Massachusetts and performs his own music with a remarkable band of Boston MVPs almost exclusively, occasionally stripping down his songs in to a full house.
Gearan has been a regular guest of local super-groups Session Americana, the Sea Monsters and of Treat Her Right. He has been acclaimed for his performance of Hades in Anais Mitchell’s folk opera, Hadestown, toured to Scotland with Kris Delmhorst, Alastair Moock and Rose Polenzani as part of a project called the “Boston T Party,” and continues to collaborate with an amazement of artists in Boston and beyond.
"He's like an eclectic Little Feat, hitting on different genres from bluesy slide-guitar workouts, to New Orleans Swing, funky soul, country-jazz, and even a touch of Tex-Mex. Gearan has never been bound by formula -- and that's the key." - Steve Morse
