Modern Outsider Records, the creation of married music industry veterans Chip and Erin Adams, is thrilled to announce Soft Swells, the new indie pop band of Tim Williams, as the label’s first signing. “Tim Williams has been a good friend of ours for a number of years and when he came to us with his new Soft Swells project, we jumped at the opportunity to work with him,” exclaims Chip Adams. “We are proud to unveil Soft Swells’ debut single as the first release on Modern Outsider.” “Every Little Thing” will be released digitally on February 22. “Signing to Modern Outsider is truly a dream come true for me,” Williams reveals. “Not only do I get to work on the music I love, I get to do it with Chip and Erin Adams, two of the hardest working and sweetest people in the entire music industry.” Williams began his music career as a singer/songwriter crafting folk-tinged melodies. He emerged on the Brooklyn indie scene in the early 2000s and released three well-received albums on Dovecote Records. After relocating to Los Angeles from Nashville via New York last year, Williams formed Soft Swells, a nod to his beachy new surroundings. The band features Williams’ longtime friend and collaborator Matt Welsh of the alt-country band Phonograph. First single, “Every Little Thing,” is replete with Williams’ canny pop songwriting and features full use of his band’s arsenal: reverby guitar, subtle electronics, stuttering and snapping drums, handclaps and a ringing xylophone. www.softswells.com www.myspace.com/softswells www.twitter.com/softswellsmusic http://www.facebook.com/#!/softswells
