Chicago’s family musician Tunes with Tim (a.k.a. Tim Bredrup) invites kids and grownups alike to join him in celebrating the release of the second Tunes with Tim album, We’re All Human, with a livestreamed Album Release Concert on Saturday, January 16 at 11:00 a.m. CST for $20.
This family-friendly, live, virtual show will feature the original music of Tunes with Tim performed by the Tunes with Tim Trio: Tim Bredrup (lead vocals/acoustic guitar/foot percussion), Charley Bredrup (electric guitar/backup vocals) and Eitan Bernstein (keyboards/backup vocals).
In addition to all 11 songs from We’re All Human, in styles as varied as pop, rock, jazz, world, and hip-hop, the trio will offer fan favorites from the debut Tunes with Tim album, Teamwork Makes the Dreamwork, including “Boogie Down in Cookie Town” and the “Tunes with Tim Theme Song.” Watch for a surprise cover song by a music legend, too!
“It’s a pleasure and a privilege to start the New Year playing these new songs with the help of two extraordinarily talented musicians, one of whom is my cousin, and both of whom I’m lucky to call friends,” says Tim Bredrup. “To say it’s going to be fun is certainly an understatement!”
We’re All Human will be available on all music streaming services starting January 15. The all-original album was produced, engineered, and mixed by Grammy-nominated Jamie Candiloro (R.E.M., The Eagles, Ryan Adams, Willie Nelson) and mastered by Grammy-winning Scott Hull (Sting, Steely Dan, Dave Matthews, John Mayer). Inspired and partly written by members of Tim’s family, the album aims to create a refreshing music listening experience the whole family can enjoy together.
Praised as a “Chicago V.I.P.,” Tim Bredrup is a true renaissance man of music who began classical piano training at age three and has since become a whiz on the guitar, bass, mandolin, ukulele, and drums/percussion. (He’s currently working on his banjo skills.) He even sings barbershop quartet and also performs regularly with his “adult band” Fletcher Rockwell. Since 2013, as Tunes with Tim, he has been using his wide repertoire of original & classic songs – from nursery rhymes to Beatles tunes – to inspire families to sing, play, and dance together, while teaching the basics of music. What all these activities have in common is that Tim thrills to the chance of inspiring others to love music as much as he does.
Pre-COVID-19, Tim’s lively, interactive, in-person performances across the Chicagoland area were tailored to the classroom, private party, library or concert settings and specific to varying age groups & levels ranging from newborn to five years of age. During the pandemic era, Tim has pivoted to Zoom and continues to offer these live music experiences virtually, in collaboration with longtime kids’ music event partner and children’s wear brand Monica + Andy.
