Tim Showalter will return Feb. 17 with a new Strand of Oaks LP titled Hard Love. Considering how much we loved his last record, HEAL, and his performance at WFPK’s Waterfront Wednesday, you can count us in the many who are looking forward to this next chapter, especially with how much the first single rocks. But don’t take out word for it. Listen for yourself.

Kyle is the WFPK Music Director.
