"It's one fine album" - Ben Fong-Torres (Live365.com radio, Rolling Stone, KSAN)

"Voices In My Head (Genre Whiplash)" album review - (Globe Records): ... "so well crafted as Mr. Eschliman has assembled a wonderful cast of Bay Area musicians to achieve this down home sound... a very timely reminder of how rich the musical community of the San Francisco Bay Area is.... certainly demonstrates a mastery of many musical genres that provides a roadmap of classic Americana music with this fine new record." - J C Flyer

"...excellent album ... has roots in country and blues but zigzags all over the musical map, evokes artists from multiple decades over the last century and embraces everything from indie-rock and Americana to Celtic, Motown, and Western swing. If you need a reference point, look to Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks and Asleep at the Wheel, whose records also draw on disparate sources."   - Jeff Burger, Americana Highways, TheAquarian.com

"...everything from alt. rock to cajun, to country, to Brownie Ford era Western Swing. But the thing that keeps this set together is their excellent songwriting full of smooth never-miss-a-beat lines and vivid imagery. It's a studio album but it sure does have a back porch jam band feel to it"   - Calvin Powers, americanamusicshow.com, WHUP-FM (4 songs in rotation)

Single Released:
"Believe I Belong"

What's it like?:
Somewhere out past Tucson on State Highway 86, it all comes together... or falls apart... .




Another single:
"Just Fall In Love" (Remix)

The Song for the Summer! Newfound minimalism diatribe on potential pitfalls of dating in the new era.
Pandemic is fading. How do we get back to normal? Enhanced mix adjustments for vinyl.
World National Indie Radio's '2021 Best Songs of the Summer' (#14 of the top 50)

or go direct to:
iTunes - Amazon - Spotify - Tidal - Deezer

What's it like?:
This Roots Rock track draws from '60s and '80s influences, a study in single-note, 2-note and full chords that adds drama to the emotionality of this topic.


We're Charting! Alt Country Specialty Chart (9 weeks out of 12)... high at #14

More Photos...



with... Tim Eschliman, Bowen Brown, Candy Girard, Beau Bradbury and Jackson Allen ...
originals and some select, possibly obscure, even historic tunes
(incl. '20s, '30s tunes downsized and reinvented a taste...)

New music by the San Francisco Bay Area musical outfit, Tim Eschliman's Back pOrchEstra
Roots Rock, Americana, country blues, Western Swing, Cajun, Indie-Rock, New Orleans and singer-songwriter music. The band presents new originals as well as historic American Roots material with rich acoustic tones. It's a compact Shelter-in-Place-inspired musical outfit befitting the newfound minimalism of the current times... going back to the basics... taking advantage of the highly talented yet currently idle players. Formed for the first time the locked-down summer of 2020, they have conducted several live streaming episodes and live outdoor shows as well as a recent foray into the Big-Pink-style living room recording facilities of Globe Records (as utilized in the recent New Copasetics album).

Country Music News Int'l May, 2021 (see single info below)

The Single...about this forever moment we are currently in:

- a love song to anyone and everyone we haven't seen in 2 years and beyond...

available all over.. choose your music playform here.
or go direct to:
iTunes - Amazon - Spotify - Deezer

What's it like?:
The Roots Rock flavor of this track is driven by a Levon Helm rhythm inspiration, a bit of Lucinda vibe, even some Joni Mitchell influence, some Sid Page improvisational/orchestral tones (Dan Hicks) and when we get to reach the chorus, a hint of Marvin Gaye groove.




Another Single, ... "Might Hafta Go After It"
from the Voices In My Head project

A groovin', rockin' tribute to the amazing Jesse "Ed" Davis (early Taj Mahal) feel-good guitar style.
by recently-formed west coast outfit with rich acoustic tones
taking advantage of some stellar but lately idle players:
Tim Eschliman, Candy Girard, Bowen Brown, Beau Bradbury, Gary Potterton and Jackson Allen
(plus guests Vicki Randle and Kathy Kennedy)

What's it like?:

(on a 78 rpm record in 1928).
with Tim Eschliman, Candy Girard, Bowen Brown & Beau Bradbury
available all over.. choose your music platform here.

What's it like?:
