Tim McCall (Jirah) is known for creating energetic and atmospheric trance music, although the Jirah name has occasionally been associated with a more downtempo style. Coming from a musical family, he learned many instruments, his favorite being guitar. He grew up listening to a mix of rock and early techno music, experimenting with digital processing from the age of 12. His first exposure to goa/psy music came with the release of the "Blue Room / Trip Through Sound" compilation in 1997, which set him on a direct course into producing this type of sound. It was during this time that Jirah was born, and over the years Tim's music evolved as he continued to refine his skills. His debut album was released in 2003 on USTA Records, receiving strong reviews and acclaim worldwide. Tim went on to release music on many other labels such as Dragonfly, Aleph Zero, Organic, Harmonia and Spliff to name a few. Since his first live show in 2001, he has played throughout the world, from Europe to Asia to the Americas. In 2005, due to a mixed set of circumstances, Tim decided that he needed to take a break from songwriting and performance. His music continued to be released during this time, and after a three year silence, he is back on the scene with new projects on the way. Stay tuned for information on new artistic directions and of course, new music!
