Bio

 

Singer-Songwriter-Soldier…

ACMA Male Artist of the Year Nominee, Tim is an accomplished singer-songwriter originally from Alberta, Canada, who is emerging in the performance scene after a lengthy hiatus from music to serve in the Canadian Army. With several shows under his belt in Western Canada, he recently returned from  a successful international 10 show concert tour.

From Rwanda to Afghanistan, Tim experienced the challenges of living and working in different cultures and conflicts, and amid the best and worst humanity has to offer.  As a performer, he has entertained audiences in many corners of Europe, east Africa, Afghanistan and throughout the Middle East and Levant.  Many of his storyteller songs stem from these life adventures. Tim brings well crafted Americana-Country-Folk songs to the stage along with an appealing vocal timbre in song styles similar to those of Lennie Gallant, Ryan Adams, Rodney Crowell, and JJ Cale; and more than that, he brings a special and endearing array of life experiences he shares in such a way that makes each listener feel connected.

With sincerity and a natural sense of humour carefully woven through stories and songs, it is Tim’s live show – whether solo or up to his full band – where he shines most. His shows are not to be missed!  His solid guitar rhythms and ear-catching original songs create a style of his own where listeners can escape into the story behind the song.  His demo song “Devil on Your Back” about turn of the century outlaws on the western Blackfoot Plains was a finalist in the Best Song of Alberta for the Calgary Folk Music Festival.

Tim recorded – Tears Along The Road – a full length album in October 2015 with celebrated producer-engineer Miles Wilkinson and other JUNO award-winning musicians. It garnered a Top 25 Favourite Albums of 2015 status by Music Canada!

New Album Release – “Running On The Edge” is Tim’s third full-length album, due out in February 2019.  Also watch for a special concerts in 2019/20 entitled “Rwanda: 25 Years After, coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the tragic Rwandan genocide to include songs and stories from Tim’s personal experiences there 25 years ago.

Tim is also contributing author and featured in the book “Everyday Heroes” .  Published by Simon & Schuster in October 2017, it quickly became national best-seller!

Tim is an experienced public speaker with special shows providing audiences with personal insights and stories in audio-visual presentations from his field work during his missions abroad.  When possible, Tim includes his music as part of his presentation.  He​ can also be your Master of Ceremonies for concerts, and for corporate and community events.
