Timothy B. Schmit Releases Solo Album, “Day By Day”

Timothy B. Schmit: Day By DayBassist and singer/songwriter Timothy B. Schmit has returned with another solo album. Day By Day was written and recorded during breaks in the Eagles’ touring schedule with Schmit tapping friends like Jackson Browne, Lindsey Buckingham, John Fogerty, Jim Keltner, and more for guest appearances.

The music on Day By Day is described as highlighting his “enduring appetite for new sounds and timeless melodies.” That’s summed up in the ska-tinged single, “I Come Alive”.

“I was feeling really good about things in general when I started this song,” the bassist said. “I decided it wasn’t necessary to try and go particularly deep, so I let it sort of roll out of me without too much second guessing. It’s a simple love song intended to express my feelings right from the surface. I am a fan of reggae and its cousin, ska. This song is definitely driven by the opening guitar chords, which are played on the upbeats and remain throughout. The rest was a matter of keeping the instrumentation equally uncomplicated so as to have a lot of air.”

Day By Day is available now on CD and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
