Originally from southern Alberta, Tim is an accomplished singer-songwriter who is emerging in the performance scene after a lengthy hiatus from music to serve in the Canadian Army.
From Rwanda to Afghanistan, Tim had the privilege and real-life challenges over several years living and working in different cultures, international conflict zones and amid the best and worst humanity has to offer. As a performer, he entertained audiences in many corners of Europe, Africa, Afghanistan and throughout the Middle East and Levant. Many of his storyteller songs stem from these life adventures.
Tim is recently returned from his first international concert tour. He brings well crafted songs to the stage along with an appealing vocal timbre, but more than that, he brings a unique and endearing array of life experiences and shares them in a way that makes each listener feel connected.
Tim released a full length album 'Tears Along The Road' in October 2015 recorded with JUNO celebrated producer-engineer Miles Wilkinson; along with other JUNO and award winning fellow musicians. It was selected by Music Canada in the Top 25 Favourite Albums (all genres) of 2015! The title track, released to radio in fall 2015, with the album also being played on popular FM and internet shows across Canada, the US, UK and elsewhere.
In his years abroad, Tim was a favourite on folk club circuits and in concerts for deployed military and civilian personnel performing his own Americana style of Roots and Alt-Country original songs, and an eclectic mix of rock, pop, folk, celtic and country cover tunes.
Tim's solid guitar rhythms and ear-catching songs create a style of his own where listeners can escape into the story behind the song. His demo song "Devil on Your Back" of revenge on outlaws on the western Blackfoot Plains was a finalist in the Best Song of Alberta for the Calgary Folk Music Festival.
Tim also has an academic background in environmental sciences and international studies, and skills in training horses. His added experience as a public speaker and as a master of ceremonies for special events all contribute to a positive audience experience.
