Modern Art Song

An art song is a Western vocal music composition, usually written for one voice with piano accompaniment, and usually in the classical art music tradition. By extension, the term "art song" is used to refer to the collective genre of such songs. 

Mister Tim studied traditional classical music at the University of Utah and the University of Colorado-Boulder. Melding his love of western concert music with contemporary vocals and songwriting, he sings "modern" Art Song: unique, expressive music in the classical tradition but from contemporary sources.
