Dan Tyminski - 2009 International Bluegrass Music Awards winnner best male vocalist!
Dynamic on stage, down-to-earth off stage, 13-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.
With Union Station, Tyminski has participated in a string of highly regarded and commercially successful albums. The band has been showered in Grammy, CMA, and IBMA awards, among others, and Tyminski has been named Male Vocalist of the Year by the IBMA four times and was recognized as 2004’s Male Vocalist of the Year by the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America (SPBGMA).
