hummingbull represents the musical endeavors of Seattle native singer-songwriter Tim Smith. As Smith begins playing, the audience becomes aware of something enticing and engaging about his style and performance. His plucking and strumming of acoustic strings combined with an earnest folky voice and well-written words quickly set him apart from other musicians. A lyric-centric songwriter, Smith's use of syntax, semantics, and literary devices will catch the attention of those who listen closely. There are layers to investigate within his often seemingly simplistic songs. He urges the audience to think deep, to ask questions. His writing explores deep subjects ranging from existentialism, religion and faith, love and loss, addiction, ego and identity. He believes emotion makes us human, and his goal is to express emotion through his songs. His songs are often personal, raw, and honest. His hope is that those who listen will be able to relate, understand, and connect on different levels. Fans of Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Elliott Smith, Conor Oberst, or Daniel Johnston will surely find something sincere and interesting here.
