HEAL is the fourth studio album by Philadelphia-based singer-songwriter Timothy Showalter, better known by his alias Strand of Oaks, released on June 24, 2014 through Dead Oceans. The album was co-produced by Showalter and Ben Vehorn.
Showalter said making HEAL was "definitely like exorcism, there was something living in me that I was avoiding confronting." "The record is called HEAL, but it's not a soft, gentle healing, it's like scream therapy, a command, because I ripped out my subconscious, looked through it, and saw the worst parts. And that's how I got better."
