Tim O’Brien’s career is maddeningly eclectic. A founding member of Hot Rize, he’s also a notable solo performer, and his songs have been recorded by Nickel Creek, Garth Brooks, and the Dixie Chicks. His recent album, Pompadour, features originals, Woody Guthrie and James Brown songs, and a traditional fiddle tune.

 

Each of O'Brien's solo albums has a distinctive identity. Many have specific themes, including Red on Blonde, an insightful collection of Bob Dylan compositions, and his Grammy-­‐winning celebration of Appalachian music and its Celtic roots, Fiddler's Green. So it is with Pompadour, or at least most of it. "It's kind of a breakup record," O'Brien says. "I separated from my wife four years ago and got divorced a year after that. So there's a breakup, an assessment and ultimately delight at the end."
