Uncovered Keys is Timothy Davey's debut recording of original piano solos released independently by the artist in 2001.
The opening track 'Denouement' was nominated for Best Solo Piano Song in the 2004 'Just Plain Folks Music Awards'.
"The music. It all comes down to the music. Blues, Jazz, Classical, Folk, Rock/Pop. What's original anyway? When is a piece of music a tune and/or a song? Too short or too long? "Originality," says J Fitzjames Stephen, "consists in thinking for yourself and not thinking unlike other people."
"I play what I am trying to reproduce - the resonance of a 12-string guitar and the melodic sophistication of a bluegrass breakdown."
"Moods... but not mood music. Stylings, but always the one style. Musical traditions, influences, ideas, motives but a personal responsibility for what comes out of the instrument."
