Strand of Oaks Releases Surprise Album ‘Ambient for Change’, Proceeds to NAACP LEGAL DEFENSE FUND

Today, Strand of Oaks (Timothy Showalter) returns with a surprise release of ambient works. The album, aptly titled Ambient for Change, is out now exclusively on Bandcamp. Listen to Ambient for Change HERE.

“I wrote these five songs in the midst of heartbreak for the tragic events in our country. The one outlet that I have is music and the ability to create with the intention of helping. I improvised these songs to try and give language to the overwhelming emotion I was feeling and to try in a small way to lend my voice of support. I’ve spent a lot of my life talking and singing but there are no words on this record. Making these songs helped me be still and contemplate how I can be a better more loving person and stand against injustice and inequality. I hope that these songs bring peace but at the same time I hope that they can also provide a safe space for meditation and reflection on ways that we can all help be there for one another. All proceeds from this recording will be going to NAACP Legal Defense Fund.

Much Love,
Tim – Strand of Oaks”
