The Invisible Man

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Invisible Man is a three-piece band consisting of Jaben Pennell on drums and vocals, Sammy Martinez on bass and vocals and Tim Torgerson (also a part of Creation Highway) on guitar and lead vocals. The band often adds support players & singers to round out their live performances and enjoy the interplay of musicianship. Following in the footsteps of other worship bands with secular appeal, such as Lifehouse, Creed, Switchfoot, Vertical Horizon or Burlap to Cashmere, the group composes songs that can be interpreted on multiple levels.

The eponymous debut, produced and mixed by Michael James (New Radicals, Robben Ford, A. J. Croce, Hole…), on the band's own, independent Creation Highway label is now being released for digital download. The Invisible Man plan to continue selling records at their live performances--which have been in countries as diverse as China, Macao, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan and USA.

THIS RECORDING

So stoked to have found Sammy and Jaben, not only because they totally fit the sonic landscapes that I had in mind, but also because we’ve become life-long friends and have shared-vision in many ways. Amidst the rat race of working day jobs, numerous other projects, and the main obstacle of limited dough, we found a way to make a recording that captures who we’ve been as a band. I’ve heard it said that a recording is like a snapshot – It’s not perfect…hair may be a little out of place (their hair looked better than mine) but it’s supposed to capture a moment. Although I look forward to the next opportunity to make music with these amazingly talented guys, I hope you’ll smile with me as I look back on this set of songs recorded over a three-and-a-half-year process with Producer, Michael James.

BAND BIO

Vegas...desert...band. How in the world does anyone end up in Vegas? Glacier National Park sounds a little homier. “What do Montana and music have in common?”, you ask. Nothing. The big sky country was the start of the invisible man (formerly tim & a clue); peculiar considering the stylistic difference between the long-established country music coming out of Montana and the waves put forth by the invisible man. Weirder things have happened.

Tim Torgerson is a native of Montana. Born and potty-trained many moons ago in the town of Whitefish, he began his endeavor in singing/songwriting/guitaring shortly thereafter. His solo stint quickly became his usual setup, though always desiring to be part of a collective, musically artistic arrangement. Jaben Pennell, pre-Carolina resident and drummer extraordinaire , was living in a yet smaller town in Montana called Lakeside as a volunteer for a missions organization. Upon meeting, the 2 musos clicked, yet wondered who could tie the rhythm and melody together. Shortly after Tim and Jaben had met, Sammy Martinez, Florida resident, became a volunteer also in the same missions organization where Jaben had been residing. In his quest for making an extra buck, Sam the bassman inquired with Jaben about the possibilities of earning some extra legal tender via the medium of local music. Jaben told Tim about Sam, and the games began. Unfortunately, after half a summer of gigging together, not including scattered reunions, the guys went their own ways.

Through a series of events, Tim made his permanent habitation in Las Vegas (baby!). Some time later, Jaben trickled his way down also. Sam flew over from Florida. The events that bring these talented artists back together are nothing short of divinely coordinated. These guys, though remaining good friends while apart, were living 3 very separate, very purposed lives, which now have joined into one focus, a very expressive and original focus, with a very expressive and original voice to speak that focus. The voice heard through their music is their expression, yet more. In soloing, slamming, or just laying down a tight groove, a certain truthful overtone is always prevalent…

the invisible man, not your typical rock-and-roll band, boys and girls.

PRESS QUOTE

THE INVISIBLE MAN (Formerly Tim & A Clue)
“Coming from Montana must have an effect on Tim & A Clue’s music, because they sure sound natural, pleasant, and honest in their style of alternative folk-rock. Whether it’s pushing or pulling inside the songs, Tim Torgerson on vocals and guitar, Jaben Pennell on drums, and Sammy Martinez on bass fortunately found themselves back together in Las Vegas after splitting up on the ‘Tana range. EAT’M showcase finalist.”
