We all need a vacation. That is a universal fact, and likely the reason New England singer/songwriter Tim Charron has embraced the “get-away-from-it-all” island vibe in his music. Music is meant to help us escape, and Tim is just the guy to take you there. He describes his sound as “country rock with a twist of lime.” Make mine a tall, with extra lime, please.

Charron didn’t grow up in the Carribbean, but he was born on an island…Rhode Island. He immediately and passionately connected with summertime and beach living. Tim relayed, “Growing up in Rhode Island was great. Half of the time we were in the city, and the other half we were in the sticks. We were always summering at Matunuck Beach in Rhode Island and that’s where I developed my fascination with the beach/ocean lifestyle.” His debut album’s title really sums up his musical mission; Chasing the Sun.

The latest release from the part-time Nashville and Florida resident is called “Rockstar.” The song starts with a lazy, hazy, totally chill, warm country air, before it starts to build and then hits the gas to rock out. This one will take you on that much needed vacation, and fire up your inner rockstar. So, let’s dig in. Get yourself a frozen concoction, let the sun hit your face, grab your fishing pole and let’s catch Tim’s music and story. Oh, and find out where you can catch him live on stage this Sunday, August 21!
