EDITORS’ NOTES

Tim Timmons brings a compelling backstory to his Reunion Records debut, Cast My Cares. Since being diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2001, the Southern California–based singer/songwriter/worship pastor has continued to dedicate his talents to a Spirit-filled message of redemption. Timmons’ intense singing style adds to the urgency of his music; there’s an Everyman sort of humility to his vocals that’s utterly convincing. Lyrically, the album stresses the universal embrace of the Word in stirring tracks like “It’s Your Revolution,” “Starts with Me," and “Holy Unafraid.” “Let’s Be Beautiful” particularly stands out along these lines with its urgent call to transform “love into action.” Timmons presents both modern pop numbers (“I Will Follow Love,” “Christ in Me”) and hymnody with a traditional ring (“Great Reward”). He wraps up Cast My Cares with “Only One Standing,” a heartfelt testimony of pure surrender that builds in dramatic power. Producer Paul Mabury (Hillsong, Chris Tomlin, Dave Barnes) frames Timmons with sparse but effective arrangements that bring out the devotion and gratitude in his work.
