Bio

He took the stage in his first performance wearing a shiny blue shirt and top hat, belting some Tom Petty song under the big lights for all he was worth…after feeling that rush there was no going back. Tim started writing songs at 15 as a way to make sense of the world. He studied the craft in earnest while getting his degree in classical music composition, and cemented his style while volunteering at a monastery and school near New Orleans. 20 years later and he’s still at it, playing over 120 shows per year. He now has six full-length solo albums under his belt, a published book on songwriting, and is showing no signs of slowing down.

Tim’s music layers an eclectic mix of styles to create a sound with modern grooves, catchy melodies, and a sense of being grounded in deep roots. He’s known for his percussive guitar work, capo-wizardry, and an expressive voice big enough to fill any room.

Tim’s lyrics are heartfelt and honest, bringing audiences with him to explore concepts of family, self-doubt, depression, hope, grief, and the many facets of love. He looks to music as a source of healing and puts that magic to work at each performance so listeners leave with more than they expected to find. Tim’s calm and passionate presence, combined with his thoughtful songcraft, make him a favorite of intimate listening rooms.

Reviews


“Tim Cheesebrow’s voice is both gentle and strong, vulnerable and confident in his album, Somebody, Somewhere, a delicately unassuming collection of songs which take their time and are a fine example of what can result when music is allowed to be molded carefully, crafted by hand, and guided by heart. This is a solid Americana/country-rock album.”


The Ark of Music, online music review

You Will Never Walk Alone is so well crafted and warmly produced that I almost forgot to review it the first time around. The underlying sentiment of the song is beautiful, valuable and important. The song has depth and is reflective in an honest and emotionally human sort of way. That meeting of the professional side of music making and the open, authentic side of being an artist has been really well captured. Tim Cheesebrow has written a great song and it’s highly likely that the rest of the Somebody, Somewhere album will follow suit.”
