Saturday morning:  Tim stumbles out of bed after a late gig.  The answerphone is winking.    Two callers, same message:  "Get up you lazy s*d, you're on the radio!!!"
. . . JAZZ-FM Blues DJ Paul Jones plays one of Tim's tracks and describes him as "an artist I admire enormousl
y."
. . . the old Rasta all fired up at the reggae club:  "I love the way you mix the reggae with dat John Lee Hooker business an' t'ing!  Your music have a future!"
. . . the happy couple, sweaty after a good bop:  "You were perfect . . .  you made our wedding so, so special."
Tim is a vibrant, entertaining performer and songwriter, whose roots are in Blues and Reggae.  Driven by SUNNY SIDE UP, a band which powerfully melds the flavas of Chicago and Jamaica, he will rock you with favourites like "Crazy 'bout An Automobile" and roll you with his dub workout of the classic "Need Your Love So Bad", which has had repeated airplay from Paul Jones.  He'll also have you dancing and singing along to his own superb songs, many of which beg to be covered by established artists.
Tim has worked with the best on both sides of the Atlantic.
In San Francisco he gigged with John Lee Hooker's daughter Zakiya and Starship's Pete Sears.  He played guitar for reggae chart-toppers Tyrone Taylor and Winston Reedy and has opened for artists as diverse as Chaka Khan, Narada Michael Walden, Tony Joe White, Curtis Stigers and Thomas Mapfumo.  He regularly works with Papa George, Robin Bibi, Andy Cortes and singer-songwriter Clea Llewellyn.  He also jammed with Jeff Beck recently when Jeff attended one of Tim's gigs.
John Addams, organiser of the hugely successful Bottleneck Blues Club, says:   "Tim rally mixes it!  As well as being a brilliant guitarist he has a great voice and injects a 'World' feel into his music."
