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.”

Jor-G built a heavy amount of anticipation for his new project, now at a fever pitch, the up-and-coming recording artist unleashes the final production to the highly-anticipated new album, entitled, ‘Sessions’.

The project includes intense lyricism, solid production, and overall brilliant concept. Jor-G is gearing up to be a force to be reckoned with in this music business.

Brief background on Jor-G. Spending two of the most crucial years of his life behind bars– Jor-G built up a sizable skillset while doing his time. As he free-styled to the beats in his mind around the prison-yard, those skills were noticed…they were appreciated…the rhymes were relatable, and real. Confirmation of talent can come from anywhere in life – and for Jor-G, those nods of approval came from the hardest of the hard inside the prison walls. Once he was finally released in 2003, he immediately went into beast-mode and put every minute he had into the music. Determined to make the most of every minute in life outside of prison – Jor-G dropped his first single “They Ain’t Ready 4 Me” and used the experience as the blueprint to guide him in refining his talents and abilities even further in order to seriously take his career to the next level.

To date, ‘Sessions,’ has chart-topped on Billboard at #2 (HeatSeekers South Atlantic ) and #40 (R&B/Hip-Hop Album Sales).
