|©2010-2013 Dan Tyminski.
Dynamic on stage, down to earth off stage, 14-time Grammy winner Dan Tyminski has the voice,
instrumental chops, and charisma to be counted among the most recognizable and popular male
vocalists on today's bluegrass and country music scenes. Yet his demeanor - low-key and
laconically sly - ensures that all the accolades are the product of his own innate gifts. Since 1994,
his ace instrumental skill (mainly on guitar, but also on mandolin) and burnished, soulful tenor
singing have been key components of Alison Krauss and Union Station, arguably the most visible
and successful bluegrass band in the modern era.
Tyminski notably stepped ever more deeply into the popular conscience as the singing voice of
George Clooney in the Coen Brothers' Odyssean farce O Brother, Where Art Thou? In addition to
being a pivotal element in the plot of the film, his powerful rendition of the Stanley Brothers' version of
"I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow" became a surprise hit single - firing off a popular renaissance in
bluegrass in the process. The song was given the Country Music Association (CMA) award for
Single of the Year, the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Award for Song of the Year,
and a Grammy Award for Country Collaboration with Vocals. The project was also honored with the
IBMA Award for Album of the Year, as well as the Grammy Award for Album of the Year - a rare
achievement for a soundtrack project.
