Strand of Oaks is Timothy Showalter, a songwriter and musician who hails from Goshen, Indiana, a small city not far from South Bend. His latest album is an autobiographical study of self-examination and healing. It documents Showalter's effort to assess his life, identify the undesirable, and will himself towards change for the better.

Strand of Oaks - FUV Live - 2014

by Russ Borris

Tim Showalter is the mastermind behind the Philly-based band Strand of Oaks, and his latest album, Heal, is his most personal yet. Through the songs, he takes listeners on a journey into his past, to a time when he was singing Smashing Pumpkins songs to himself in his basement and rifling through his parents' record collection. It’s an album about falling in love with music. During a recent visit to Studio A, Tim talked with me about his favorite artists, from Black Sabbath to Phosphorescent. He also played some of his new songs for us live with his band, and we’ll hear that conversation and performance on this episode of FUV Live.
