AUSTIN, TX -- “People thought we were nuts,”
said Tim Dolbear. ”But when God said ‘move to Austin’, we weren’t going to go
around that mountain again.”
Having just completed the recording of their fourth release Dependence Day, this
former Southern Californian duo pulled-up stakes, left behind a successful
recording studio clientele, and headed for the hill country of Central Texas.
“We had just heard a study about how God calls people out to other places to do
His work,” said Angela Dolbear, “we always look forward to what God has for us.”
Tim & Angela Dolbear comprise the core of child of the Son. Their
releases, The Garden Key
Soundtrack, Dependence Day,
and Never Been to
Memphis, along with many other released singles, contains ethereal driving music with a European flavor.
The testimonial lyrics are a narrative of the spiritual lessons and experiences
of this singer/songwriter couple.
Each song is a vignette of striking true-to-life experiences, such as the title
track “Dependence Day,” which chronicles Tim & Angela’s ultimate desire to
remain strong in their faith through all circumstances that occur on their
spiritual journey. Soaring emotionally charged vocals and modern production give
what Night Moves Magazine described as “a little melodic, a little alternative
and a lot unlike what is getting stale today.”
Child of the Son’s release, Never Been to Memphis, released on January
1, 2004, is a collage of music textures and melodies. The first single off the
album, "My Soul," debuted as featured new music on 95.9 FM, the FISH, one of
Orange County’s premiere Christian music radio stations. The couple’s first two
releases "Leap of Faith" and "Change," received airplay on commercial and
non-commercial radio nation-wide in 1998 & 2000.
