White Bear Lake Musician Tim Cheesebrow Releases New Album

Local singer and songwriter Tim Cheesebrow releases his third album.

With the release of his third studio album, Crooked Lines, White Bear Lake musician Tim Cheesebrow is taking his sound in a bit of a new direction. While he describes most of his previous work as more solidly within the folk genre, this newest collection is more of an “Americana alt-country folk-rock kind of thing.” Inspired by a “weird mish-mash of influences,” Cheesebrow says that creating the album was driven by his work with Discover Music, the nonprofit he runs that teaches songwriting to middle and high school students in local public schools. “I’m always telling them to write music that is semi-autobiographical, that’s kind of true to their heart, and to try to write honest songs about things that matter,” says Cheesebrow.
