ORIGINS

Tim was blessed by modest, hard-working parents in west Texas.  He is forever thankful for their simple example of a good and helpful life in commitment to faith, family and service to others.

"Ultimately we are all in the same lifeboat.  It is our duty to row through the waves, loving and helping folks where we can." 

He believes every person has innate priceless God-given value, regardless of origin and circumstances.  It's up to each of us to do something positive with the gift. 

"Life is a symphony.   Some songs are sweet, some songs are mean.  It's up to us to choose the former."

Musical influences came from growing up with gospel music and enjoying popular music of the late 60's - 70's.

With a full music scholarship to Baylor University, he earned a performance degree.  And a few years later, a graduate business degree.

He has been performing and singing ever since, working to balance ongoing music pursuits with career business responsibilities as an entrepreneur and executive.   And sharing in the joys and challenges of life on earth.

Along with his beloved wife, they raised children and now enjoy the blessings of beautiful grandkids.

Since about 2000, Tim has been writing and performing his original songs and covering classics and popular tunes.

In 2014, he left the business arena to more effectively pursue his passion for song-writing, recording and performing.

SONG WRITING

In creating new songs, Tim draws from varied life experiences including extensive travel across America (and the world).

"Sometimes life is....   well....   tough.       But it's good."

His songs reflect an intimate appreciation of common life experiences and the kinds of things that are most important;  faith, family, purpose, meaning, adversity, love and perseverance (and fun).

"A simple song can change the color of the sky."

Four original albums have been released and new recordings are in the works.

PERFORMANCE AND SHOWS

Tim's music is generally in the style of acoustic Americana, Folk and Gospel Music.

He seeks to entertain, provoke meaningful thought, and strike a chord of encouragement;  make the day better and uplift the listener (and have fun).

At shows and performances, Tim may sing his own original tunes, and/or cover Americana, Classic or Gospel tunes.  Each show is tailored to the particular venue, event and audience.

Tim has provided music at many venues all across the country, performing for groups ranging in size from a few to as many as 12,000.

ROADHAWG & SUCH

Tim is also the founder of "Roadhawg Music" - where he has written songs for the motorcycle community and ministries.

He served as the founding music leader for Rushing Wind Fellowship in Corinth, Tx. in 2016, 17 and 18.

He is based in the Dallas, Texas area.
