PRESENTED BY KIANNA MARTINEZ
Years before kicking off his career as a sharp, soulful songwriter and first-rate vocalist, Tim Halperin spent countless hours by the family record player as a child, listening to classic pop, Motown, and R&B records.
"I would play my mom's copy of Michael Jackson's Off the Wall nonstop," he remembers. "There was a lot of Stevie Wonder and the Temptations in the mix, too, as well as some James Taylor and Neil Diamond. It was this cool combination of pop smashes and blue-collar songwriters."
With his newest release, Chances, Halperin ramps up the beat and bounce of his own sound, nodding to the pop music he heard during those childhood listening sessions. Filled with horn arrangements, super-sized choruses, and hooks reminiscent of 1980s radio hits, Chances bridges the gap between past and present, connecting Halperin's influences with something modern. At the core of the album is Halperin's voice — a soulful instrument that earned him a spot on American Idol in 2011, laying the brickwork for a career that's since sent Halperin to Number One on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart — and a reliance on honest, heartfelt songwriting.
