Live From the Sky


Tim Mahoney is a tireless journeyman troubadour, the kind you’d be pleased to find dropping in at your local neighborhood bar. For the past 20 years or so he’s maintained a solid output with an unpretentious everyman attitude. Live From the Sky sums up his progress so far, a double disc of unplugged performances shared with eager audiences. While emphasizing his fan-favorite standards, including the swooping falsetto of “Come on Home,” the emphatic rockers “Mr. Fancy” and “Talk to Me” and the compelling “Shine,” he’s equally assured in his choice of covers—Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing,” Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” and Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” among them. If enthusiasm and likeability could be mined or monetized, Mahoney would be sitting on a fortune.
