Profile Tim McAllister  is an American musician, music engineer, and producer. He found success in the mid 1980s with his hometown band Flock 14, which relocated to Cincinnati, OH to record an album with Graceland Records. The band broke up a year after the move. In Cincinnati, McAllister met Linford Detweiler who worked with him on his next album, recorded under the name World Theatre. He invited his friend Gary Egger of Human Condition to work on the album which included appearances by Jimmy Abegg (Vector, Charlie Peacock). 

Fans of Illustrator and NEO A4 will appreciate this slick, keyboard-filled 80’s sounding gem.  A pleasantly surprised album full of mostly low-key, mature pop song stylings from a mostly one-man band by the name of Tim McAllister. McAllister’s voice has a nice range of affective emotions from melancholy to growing hope. Several of the songs have a story outline to them and, while the lyrics are fairly routine, the music and arrangements are evocative and serve the songs nicely.
