Tim Burness talks Marillion, reading the stars and recording with Daleks
The multi-talented Tim Burness is back with a brand new album. We catch up with him to find out all about his new project
B it-part actor, care worker, astrological counsellor, occasional stand-up comedian… progressive rock musician. Tim Burness’ CV is more colourful than most, but for a man of several talents, he’s made a pretty impressive stab at the latter vocation over the years. That was initially under the guise of 80s neo-prog hopefuls Burnessence, and more recently as a less-than-prolific but beguiling and unpredictable solo artist.
Now, with his seventh studio album, Whose Dream Are You Living?, he’s produced his most incisive, immediate set of songs to date. And this time he really means business – he’s promising there’ll be a follow-up within months, rather than the decade-long gap that followed his previous long-player, 2007’s ambient-influenced Vision On.
