"Marrying Lou Reed's banter and Neil Young's soulful croon, imbued with Americana-influenced melodies reminiscent of country-infused blues of the past, 'Better Angels' boasts six multi-genre tracks from Tim Gebard's third album of original selections ... A broad spectrum of sounds ranging from pop, R&B and rock with even orchestral influences, 'Better Angels' is an eclectic delight, appealing to most for its nostalgic quality and ability to transport listeners to an easier time of living ... Notable songs on the album include a classic country duet with Gebard and Erin Higgins (of Higgins-Madewell fame) called 'Fools In Love', as well as 'Spy Rock To Wayside Station' ... "
“Unbroken Hearts is an album that simply will not let you define it as one genre, something that Gebard purposely did. With each song, there are different influences that sprinkle throughout the album. From country to rock, from soft to fast, Unbroken Hearts guides you all around the dial of music in its purest forms. ... The album Unbroken Hearts has seen some remarkable things tied to the album. ‘Life Time Love’ was the winner of the 8th Annual International Acoustic Music Awards in the Country/Bluegrass category. ‘Smiles Without Words’ was Honorable Mention in the Instrumental category in the 2011 International Songwriting Competition. Several songs are under non-exclusive contracts with A&R companies. (Note: A song from his upcoming EP – “To Licata”, an instrumental inspired by a recent trip to Italy – was recently named an Honorable Mention in the Songdoor 2012 International Songwriting Competition.)”
