Aside from being an extremely versatile and tasteful guitarist, Tim Bovaconti (or The Bover) has also shown himself to be an excellent pop songwriter with a great ear for melody and hooks. I’m looking very much forward to the new disc. - RON SEXSMITH

I have worked with Tim Bovaconti regularly for about four years now and have always found him to be a professional of the highest degree.What impresses me most about him is his vast knowledge of music that came long before his time. I myself am somewhat of a music historian and archivist and it’s not often that I meet someone else who knows of so many of the rare and sought after tracks. Tim is a musician’s musician.He can play many different styles of music, which attests to how much listening and absorbing he has done. He also did a stellar job on my last album “Above The Ground”. His innovative solos breathed tremendous new life into many of my songs. Bovaconti is a true professional. -BURTON CUMMINGS
