Super Connected

Super Connected™ is a new project by UK solo artist Tim Arnold. But is it a concept album, a band, a series of music videos, a feature length film or a burgeoning community learning to weave our humanity through the digital space? Yes.

Super Connected
When you’re young and gifted in music, opportunities to shine your light can shape and determine what kind of artist you are going to become. 18 months ago I was asked to mentor a 15 year old singer in the art of songwriting, production and all the other tricks of the trade I share with my mentees. Teaching is sharing what you have learnt, and it’s become one of the unexpected joys of my life in music these last few years. Especially when you begin to witness the results of the young talent you’ve nurtured.J’ci Ama was born with an innate gift to fuse her unique appreciation of music with a god given voice. From the start of the first lockdown in the UK, I was mentoring her every week on Zoom, and I became concerned about the amount of time she was losing in not honing her craft in a live setting. Without bonding with other musicians and learning to listen in real time to musical collaborators in the same room, it’s hard to gain the experience that an arena sized voice deserves. I kept saying “as soon as you get a chance to perform live again, grab it with both hands and take whatever is offered as soon as live music opens up again”.As it happens I was offered an opportunity myself - to perform at The Isle of Wight Festival. I quickly realised that what I had been saying to J’ci is what I really needed to hear myself. The opportunity inspired me to form a new band. Which, although it’s my natural habitat, I haven’t had a band for 5 years and have been performing mostly solo on my last couple of albums. I grabbed the opportunity with both hands, and as I did, I shared it with J’ci and invited her to join the band to sing backing vocals along with two solo spots that we arranged together. Without exaggeration, she gave a truly show stopping performance that me and the rest of the band have been illuminated by each time we’ve rehearsed and performed with her. And for a 16-year-old whose roots are in Soul and R & B, she has taken to concept album progressive rock like a fish to water.I am so proud of what she did on stage last Sunday, in giving her heart and soul to her first professional performance at a music festival, and to the first performance of my next album with my new band, that she is now a founding member of.As I wrote in my first single ‘Walking Through Walls’ back in 2004 “You’ve got to share what you’ve got to get back what you’ve lost”.Like all musicians, we both lost something dear to us when the pandemic hit. But we got it back by sharing what we have. With each other, and with a new audienceJ’ci is just beginning her career and I remember how galvanising it was for me to have encouragement and support in those early years. Please give her a follow: J'ciAnd if you want to hear her in action, we’ll be sharing the film of our show from the Isle of Wight Festival by invite only, here: Super Connected"Be not afeard. The isle is full of noises, sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not."Thank you J’ci for helping to bring my new music into reality and knocking the socks off the whole band and the crowd last weekend. May this be the beautiful beginning of an enriching life lived in the eternal embrace of our mutual friend: music. Here we go! Tim x ... See MoreSee Less

With what the world of music has been through in recent times, it’s the skilled beings behind the scenes that I want to acknowledge today. Those who tech, prep, stage manage and curate the music so that we as artists have the opportunity to present our work at an industry standard. These people are the nuts and bolts that hold the shows together and create the platforms that facilitate the wonder, joy and elation that exists between performers and audiences.They are seldom seen on stage, but deserve a standing ovation for all they do. Putting on an event with a new band, a chamber choir and a film crew with a 25-minute changeover was no small feat for us, but these people made it happen last week at Isle of Wight Festival. From me and the band and the rest of my Super Connected family, please take a bow…Paul Douglas – Guitar TechRoger Handley – Stage ManagerMatt Royston-Bishop – FOH SoundJim Warren – FOH SoundDan – MonitorsSharon Addison – Artist LiaisonNancy Skipper – ProductionRachel Roberts – Artist AccomodationJuliette Avery – Gibson GuitarsKate Alderton – Company ManagerNigel Hart – Production ManagerNadine Page – WellbeingRichard Barber - Solo Music AgencyJohn Giddings – Promoter (The Guv’nor)#WeMakeEvents ...
