Music For All!

I’ve decided to take a leap of faith and offer all of my music on Bandcamp for pay-what-you-want! It’s a wonderful gift to be able to share my songs with you all. I’m grateful for the support I’ve received from family, friends and fans in crowdfunding campaigns. It’s enabled me to start a solid music career and live that dream of being a performing songwriter and educator.


There’s a sustainable way that you can directly continue to support my music, Patreon. It’s a service that allows you to become a patron for a couple bucks a month. You can be part of my continued efforts making music, and realizing my other dream, to provide every student the opportunity to learn how they can use music to express themselves and tell their story in their own voice. For every milestone we reach, I will offer classes to schools free of charge! It’s a great way to spread the love.

Please take a look at my Patreon page and consider becoming a patron today.

Thanks friends,

Tim Cheesebrow CD Release: A Night of Real, Good Americana

The Cedar Cultural Center and Loud Folk Records present a night of real, good Americana music; a blend of raw rootsy styles crafted by some of the area’s most respected musicians. No Grass Limit starts off the night with their brand of bluegrass and beyond, followed by one of the great American songwriters of our time, Adam Levy, to deliver a seasoned and soulful set. The show finishes with the debut of Tim Cheesebrow playing songs from his new release, Crooked Lines.

Adam Levy


Adam Levy is regarded by many to be one of the great American songwriters of his era. Levy is probably best known for his nearly 20 years of work as lead singer-songwriter for The Honeydogs. Levy’s songwriting has always been musically expansive, exploring styles as diverse as American roots music, psychedelia, soul, world, jazz, and classical music. His lyrics have always been thoughtful, literary and provocative, and have garnered him international critical accolades and fans. Adam’s wry wit and incisive lyrics are wrapped inside layers of deceptively beautiful melodies and hooks that have come to life with his signature great guitar work. Paste Magazine once said Levy’s songwriting captured “the zeitgeist of our time.”

No Grass Limit


There is no limit to No Grass Limit.  This 5-piece band was formed in June of 2011, and they were only 4 months into the process of playing together when they took 1st place at the MBOTMA (Minnesota Bluegrass and Old Time Music Association) Race for a Place band contest.  Ranging from bluegrass, folk, americana, gospel and traditional music No Grass Limit puts on an electric performance that you will not want to miss.  Members include award winning duet, songwriters and owners of Lesson Pros, Chuck and Sandi Millar, 3 time MN Flatpicking Champion Clint Birtzer, the nicest guy you will ever meet and plays a heck of a banjo Mike Hedding, and the gal that holds it all together on bass is Vaughn Asselstine.

All in all a fantastic night and it will be so good to spend it with supportive friends and family.
