Tim is well known on the circuit. The reviews speak for him.

Tim will often improvise a lyric on stage, later crafting this into one of the Blues-Reggae hybrids for which he is so well known.

His passion for ‘roots’ music has taught him the value of sinplicity and that a song is a means of communication.

His considerable craft can be turned to any style, be it ballad or anthem, R & B, rock or pop.

Tim has co-written with the likes of Narada Michael Walden (writer and producer of hits for Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin and George Michael); Maggie Ryder (“You’re The Voice”); Kit Hain (“Dancing In The City”); Zakiya Hooker, daughter of blues legend John Lee Hooker; Dominic Miller (Sting’s guitarist; No 1 classical album). Their song ‘River of Tears’ is featured on ‘Sunny Side Up’.
