Premiere: Tim Maiden Takes Us To “The Other Side” Of His Soul In New Video

Published

on

The single landed on the Spotify’s Fresh Finds Playlists and was picked up by well respected music outlets. Now it’s time for rising singer/songwriter Tim Maiden to unveil the visual presentation to his soon-to-be dark R&B hit single, “The Other Side” .

In the Derek Anthony Welte-directed video, Tim Maiden shows us the cruel, twisted, dark, tortured side of love. Filled with dark elements and moody sounds that has become a popular trend in today’s dark R&B genre. The director illustrates the singer’s heart and soul to the world for the first time ever for an amazing first impression.

After years of searching for his sound, Tim realized being 100% honest in his music was the only thing that lead to clarity. Holding back his emotions not only stifled him creatively, it also led to a music career that was unfulfilling. He now finds himself exposing his truth by blending R&B melodies with lush soundscape’s. Maiden’s soulful vocals will captivate listeners instantly as evident.

Tim Maiden on the making of “The Other Side”:

“The Other Side was found by mistake really. Originally I had put so much time and resources into another idea that was supposed to be the last song of the album. In the last session for it I realized I hated it. Everything was contrived and I hit a massive wall. I was thinking to myself, this is my last idea, I’ve spent way to much time on it and it sounds like shit. Cool.

So it was kind of a make or break moment for me. I was exhausted after a few years of working on this album and didn’t want it to end like this. I took a red-eye from NY to LA and only had 1 day left on this record. So I told my producer I wanted to write and record a new idea from scratch with the 2 hours we had left. I didn’t have my Prophet, which I made my entire record on, and we were at a friends home studio in east LA that was much more suited for production work not recording vocals and tracking from scratch. Little did I know I was totally wrong and had a lot to learn.

So much of this process is less about gear and money and more about guts. When you have nothing to hide behind is when your ready to make something special and worthwhile.

30 minutes to an hour later we had a song that I couldn’t be more proud of. This song taught me what it’s all about and even though I couldn’t hear myself as I was tracking and we had little to no gear, it’s probably my most personal and proud work because it has guts.”

Delaware R&B sensation Rell Jerv unveils the first of a trilogy of new music cleverly-titled, “Cheated on Yourself”.

The single is the first of three new tracks slated for a January 2018 release. “Cheated on Yourself” was produced by the usual suspects behind the boards, the Mak3rs.

Listen to “Cheated on Yourself” above via SoundCloud and check below to see what Rell Jerv’s said on the making of the new track.

“When we made “Cheated on Yourself” we had just got done distancing ourselves from a lot of people. I think that definitely played a big part in how the record came out, at first listen most would think the song is just about a female.. but in reality, it is directed towards everyone. Fake supporters, people that doubt you and mainly the people that walk out of your life while you are in the middle or chasing a goal. So the line “you tied the rope you gotta hang now” is really saying hey you made the decision to walk out of my life, live with that decision.”
