Strand of Oaks Provide a HEALing experience
Strand of Oaks show off the healing power of rock 'n' roll during a blistering live show in Cleveland.
Strand of Oaks' Timothy Showalter may have described himself as looking like the Hell's Angel who's playing rock 'n' roll" in an interview with the Erie Reader, but when the Philadelphia-based musician rolled through the Beachland Tavern, he was almost playing the part of a pastor as he perfomered the majority of the song's off of his intensely personal, and rather good, new album HEAL.
It took just three songs in for Showalter to make his transformation from long-locked rocker to fiery preacher, owning the microphone as he intone the words "You've got to heal" to the Beachland crowd. It was more of a command than a suggestion, as Showalter grasped the mic stand with his right hand in a way that the "SURVIVE" tattoo on his arm was clearly visible from the crowd.
