Ralph’s Reviews: Timoteo – The Weight of the World

Timoteo (Tim Gehring) is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from the Allentown area. His latest, “The Weight of the World,” was released on June 25, an is the most recent of several self-produced, self-recorded efforts from the one-man band, who records all of the instruments and vocals on the four-song EP.

“The Weight of the World” has a garage band, grunge rock sort of feel to it, with a satirical twist on the subject matter. The title track pokes fun at bearing the “heavy” burden of everyday life. Even the title to the third track — “I Wear My Heart on My Sleeve (So I’m Putting on a Short-sleeved Shirt)” — hints at a comical look at someone who outwardly displays their emotions. Meanwhile, “This is a Match (Music is My Fire)” delivers a message we should all hear, no matter what we do in life: “The fire burns inside me, don’t let the passion ever die.”
