This fall will mark the release of Tim Dawn’s new EP, featuring singles ‘Walking On A Wire’ and ‘Shadow’ and four brand new tracks. The release of the EP, which is titled ‘I’ll Hold On’, will be followed by a Dutch club tour in October and November.
‘I’ll Hold On’ builds on the refined left-of-centre pop which yielded Tim Dawn a TopSong on Radio 2 and support shows for The Paper Kites, Harry Styles and Hozier. Tim Dawn: “I’m incredibly proud of how this EP embodies what I stand for: genuine, artisanal songs with a rich and modern sound enhancing the emotion. ’I’ll Hold On’ is a hopeful EP dealing with the struggles and challenges in love and life.”
The EP will be released on 4 October: World Animal Day. Appropriate, as Tim Dawn lives at a petting zoo, where he takes care of the animals.

About Tim Dawn
A prize-winning law graduate, Tim Dawn was well on his way to a PhD and the big bucks. And then… he fell for music. Backpacking through Australia and New Zealand, armed with a handful of songs and a guitar, he felt freer than ever. Back home he quit his job and moved to a petting zoo located at amonumental lumber mill property in the heart of Utrecht, the Netherlands, where he works on his music and takes care of the animals.
His surroundings are reflected in his artisanal yet modern indie pop songs, which echo both the peace and quiet of his life amongst the pigs and sheep, and the restlessness of the city. His sincere music and voice are reminiscent of artists like James Bay, Hozier and Coldplay.
After his debut EP “Up” and a number of notable live shows, including supports for The Paper Kites and Harry Styles, hegot his big break in late 2018, when his single Walking On A Wire received major airplay on national radio, was elected TopSong on Radio 2and was streamed over 1,5 million times on Spotify alone.
In the end, he never became a lawyer. But he surely did himself justice.
