Canadian Singer-Songwriter Tim Isberg Releases 2nd Single 'Steel Wheels' From Forthcoming Album 'Prairie Fire'

Steel Wheels is the second single to be released by Albertan, Tim Isberg, and is taken from his much anticipated upcoming album Prairie Fire.

Steel Wheels is based on the impressive feats and also the impacts brought by the expansion of the Canadian Transcontinental Railway across the West; and its progression despite the consequences to First Nations, Chinese workers and others.

Prairie Fire is a historically based album of 12 original songs about people and events of the late 19th century Canadian Prairies and Western Plains. At the end of the fur trade, there were constant and significant changes and events across the West that took place over a mere three decades in the mid to late 1800s. Along with these events came tragedy, celebration and loneliness, and with many characters and legends rising to the fore.

Fire Canoe” is the first single from Tim’s upcoming history-based concept album ‘Prairie Fire’.

Originally from southern Alberta, Tim Isberg is an accomplished singer-songwriter, veteran soldier and multiple ACMA nominee. From Rwanda to Afghanistan, Tim experienced the many life-changing challenges while deployed in different cultures and conflicts, and amid the best and worst humanity has to offer.

As a performer, Tim has entertained audiences in many corners of Europe, Africa, and Afghanistan and throughout the Middle East and Levant.  Many of his storyteller songs stem from these life adventures. In his years abroad, Tim was a favourite on folk club circuits and in group performances for deployed military and civilian personnel.

Tim brings an Americana style blend of well-crafted Alt-country, Roots and Contemporary Folk songs to the stage along with an appealing vocal timbre, and an array of life experiences he shares in a way that makes each listener feel connected. With a genuine sincerity and sense of humour carefully woven through stories and songs, it is Tim's live show - whether solo or with his full band - where he shines most.

An international tour in spring 2016 followed Tim’s album 'Tears Along The Road'  was recorded with Grammy nominee and JUNO celebrated producer-engineer Miles Wilkinson, and selected by Music Canada in the Top 25 Favourite Albums of 2015.  Tim’s sophomore album ‘Running on the Edge’, also recorded with Miles Wilkinson at the helm, was released in 2019 and nominated as Best Album of the Year by the ACMA.  The song 'Jerusalem Road' was selected as a Top 10 song among international songwriters.

Tim is also a published author. In October 2017, Simon & Schuster published the book ‘Everyday Heroes’ which includes a chapter by Tim on one of his many experiences in the line of duty. It is a national best-seller.

Tim's solid guitar rhythms and ear-catching songs create a style of his own where listeners can escape into the story behind the song.  His song "Devil on Your Back" of revenge on outlaws on the western Blackfoot Plains was a past finalist in the Best Song of Alberta for the Calgary Folk Music Festival.
