Parting Lines
Parting Lines
Southern California duo Parting Lines is the new project of Tim Ramsey and Trevor Beld Jimenez, longtime members of the bygone Los Angeles folk-rock outfit, Tall Tales and the Silver Lining, and sidemen to bands Vetiver, Little Wings, and DIOS.



After the abrupt ending of Tall Tales and feeling liberated by the possibilities of new horizons, Ramsey and Beld Jimenez made a pact to finally make the music they always wanted to hear. At the encouragement of friend and producer Thom Monahan, who having heard their demos suggested the two were onto something special, Ramsey and Beld Jimenez set off on a year-plus journey, recording from the summer of 2016 to the fall of 2017. What began as two friends getting together to work on songs soon turned into a full-length album, resulting in Night Bloom Records’ August 24th, 2018 release of the duo’s debut LP, See You On The Other Side.


Written by Beld Jimenez and recorded and produced by Ramsey in his basement studio on a hill overlooking the Los Angeles neighborhood of Highland Park, See You On The Other Side is an existential pop record dealing with everything from feeling displaced in the consumer culture (the hypnotic loop of "Caught On the Outside"), true love (the tender musings of "Under Your Spell"), confronting a childhood trauma (the anthemic "Black Tint Sunset”) and turning to love in the face of the end of the world (“Climb”).



Though nods to Petty and Springsteen can be heard, there are also more oblique influences including the guitar stylings of Lindsey Buckingham.



With See You On The Other Side, Beld Jimenez and Ramsey don’t try to reinvent the rock n' roll wheel, but rather remind the listener of the power of strong melodies, a shared language, and a few simple chords.
