You may not know who Tim Daniel is yet, but chances are you've already heard his songs. That's because Tim is one of the UK's most successful songwriters, and has written a string of chart topping hits for various popstars. So Tim knows how to write a great song. His lyrics sum up exactly what everyone is thinking but can't say themselves. Tim has found that his music really connects with people and what he wants to achieve with his own album is for people to identify with the songs and for them to reach out and help those who've been through similar experiences to him. Although he's been writing for as long as he can remember, it wasn't until Tim was 16 that a teacher persuaded him to go into the school studio and record one of his songs. Ever since then Tim has been working as a professional songwriter - so you could say he's more than qualified to write his own album."Writing solo material is quite different to that of writing for other people. I have to be totally inspired to write my own songs, it's so personal that it's got to be just right - it's not something that can be rushed either."Tim found the process of writing his debut album quite therapeutic, and yet this collection of songs is far from self-indulgent. From the honest and hard hitting ˜It Ain't Working', to the beautiful, lyrical ballad ˜You're Needed', Tim has constructed an album of emotional, hope-inspiring songs, each drawn from different moments in his life.One of the only stand-alone UK songwriters, Gary Barlow, described Tim's record as "an album full of hits, obviously written from the heart", and as soon as he heard Tim's music, Gary invited him to support Take That on their recent tour, saying "Tim Daniel is an exceptional talent with a unique style of writing. As soon as I heard his songs, I just knew he'd be great on tour with us."
