His dad told him if he could write better songs than what we heard – than do it. He has passed on now but his words still stuck with him. In the last several years Tim took on his passion and his challenge and began writing and singing his own songs. The songs Tim writes are like life, they fall in all different directions. There are relationship songs that express the love and care of another. There is a song of deep loss and gratitude. There is a song about taking chances in others. Tim hopes that ya’ll find the simple messages of love, loss and understandings. These songs are expressions of emotions, feelings and life lessons captured and expressed.

Any Advice For Young People (Men or Women) That Want To Succeed In The Music World?
Seems like you can find lyrics of insight from many different groups - Kid Rock waiting for one of these Mother Fukn songs to hit, Nickelback -sing em every night so I don't get em wrong, ACDC - Its a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll.
At this point I would say to stay determined, but if its not your passion - find something else.
What Would You Change In The Music Industry If You Were A Top Music Executive?
In order to change something you should have an intelligent understanding of the operation. As an independent artist - I know what I want.

When I look around I see artists like Cody Jinks doing his own thing and wonder if going through major labels are still the best way to go for someone new if you can develop your own exposure.
How Do You Feel About Originality?
Sounding or saying something by another is a great form of flattery and very complimentary. My songs are all original and my sound is not replicated from another artist.

Me being original is more about being true to myself- also true in my expression and message.
