guitar

Tim grew up in Chippewa Falls, WI surrounded by music. As a young child he was introduced to the infectious rhythm and soulful melodies of The Doobie Brothers, Loggins and Messina, and Elton John. On occasion he would wake up on a Saturday morning to the thunderous sound of Pavoratti or an orchestra featuring the great Itzak Perlman. Tim was drawn to the passion these artists portrayed, and set forth to find a passion of his own. He excelled in his piano lessons, but somewhere in the three short years of those lessons his father introduced him to a handful of chords on an old acoustic guitar. His passion had surfaced. 

Between his father's old albums and the late 80's glam-rock on TV, it was a song on the radio that would define Tim's future. 'The Telephone Song' by the late, great Stevie Ray Vaughan and his brother Jimmy would be the first time he had heard a guitar with a tone that seemed to rip right through the car stereo. He sat, still, in awe of what he was hearing. 


Immediately after, he started saving money. With a little help from wonderful parents, he bought his first Stratocaster. Tim disappeared into his room for a couple of years, learning to play with Stevie albums, trying to capture every nuance the songs had to offer. He formed his first band out of high school with music that included all genres. Over the past 12 years he has been the lead guitarist for a number of bands, both cover and original.

 

After years of honing his skills, he has arrived in Nashville, TN, ready to take the stage with the same passion and ferocity that his idols did before him. The simple love for playing.
