“Timeless sounds for our time…”

Tim Arnold’s new album SONNET 155 (released 3 May 2010) was three years in the making and is best described as “a rock/classical crossover of 11 songs”, written and performed by Arnold.

Stylistically bridging the gap between Seattle Rock and European Baroque, the album re-interprets classical pieces of music by Mozart, Rimsky Korsakov and a co write with Michael Nyman – all driven by Shakespearean themes.

The result is a collection of songs about today and tomorrow, inspired by Arnold’s personal experiences and the creativity of a man writing 400 years ago.
