Since the release of Timothy's last record, The Crossing, he has been actively composing new music for an eventual release. Timothy will begin to release music films which incorporate these new pieces of music along with his original visual imagery. The first of this series of films, San Pablo, is viewable below. Subsequent to the release of these short films, the new music will be available to download on iTunes and for listening using your subscription to Spotify.
First Snow - Created during a recent residency near Lake Tahoe. Footage was captured, edited and a score was created to picture, all on the same day. A spontaneous expression, inspired by the beauty of the surroundings and a cathartic feeling of release and resolve while moving from one season to another.
San Pablo - Timothy's first new video project since the March 2020 lockdown began. An expression of feelings regarding the recent loss of his father, questions about his role as touring musician, and the effect the pandemic has had on his psyche.

Excerpts from Paul Jerome Smith's review, Melodic Rock/Fireworks Magazine.
"This is a tremendous prospective purchase for those of you who enjoy melody-laden, atmospheric, instrumental albums. Initially I felt that the Crossing would be ideally suited to those late evening wind-down sessions, the furrowed brow massaged by the eleven sweeping soundscapes that comprise this album, along with quantities of ones favourite relaxation liquid. But I have now listened to this at other times of the day, and it also works well played at volume. "
"The Crossing is the brainchild of one Timothy Drury who has composed, performed and produced this little beauty. Having previously released a song-based album, what we have here is a completely instrumental release on which Drury plays all the instruments except the electric guitar on two tracks and acoustic guitar on three. Although it is possible to think of the music here as the soundtrack to our lives, it is much, much more than incidental music and ranges from the short title track with it's rather ambient and introspective sections, through to the complex and lengthy (at over 7:30) closing track Game Of Chance with its polyrhythmic structure and rather jazzy feel. In between there are all sorts of treasures, including And We Danced that could easily be a piece of film music; the dramatic Night Drive with its heavy and insistent drum beats; the slow and majestic Ascending Angel and the rather moody and somewhat offbeat number Breathe Me In. "
"The defining gem of the whole album for me, however, is the opening track Catalyst that includes far more use of guitar alongside the keyboards and percussion and is dramatic in its execution and impact. The Crossing is an unmissable treat for those of you receptive to this kind of album, and for me is a dazzling discovery."
