Timber Timbre is Taylor Kirk, Simon Trottier and Mika Posen. The Canadian trio’s fourth release, Creep On Creepin’ On, is a striking, transcendent record filled with heartrending compositions that engage, transport and challenge.
Creep On Creepin’ On represents the full realization of Timber Timbre’s ability to simultaneously invoke and disguise the most essential elements of pop and rock music with chilling authenticity.
From guttural groans on lead track “Bad Ritual” to the eerie doo-wop pleas of “Lonesome Hunter”, the album is textured and commanding, stirring proof of the unwavering powers of obsession and possession.

The album also includes appearances by acclaimed pianist Mathieu Charbonneau and saxophonist Colin Stetson, a pair the band credits with elevating the caliber of the album’s arrangements and its overall sound.
While settings and collaborators continue to change for Timber Timbre, the guiding inspiration behind the songs has not. “The idea is to make music we love and therefore embrace the risk of sounding like all the music we’ve ever loved, all at once,” Kirk explains.
The result is Timber Timbre’s most brilliant and robust offering to date, a collection of 10 songs that incorporates rich and varied melodies, affecting lyricism and evocative vintage instrumentation.
With Creep On Creepin’ On, Timber Timbre has succeeded in reaching a place it was long destined for, where its music is as powerful and extraordinary as it has always been unmistakable.
