    Since a very young age, [he] has been captivated by music. His love of it shows in his musical performances which, over the years, have ranged from Country to Jazz and all the way back around. On his latest album, he shows his Country side for all the world to hear and see, and for my money, it sounds pretty dang good.

    Kicking off with “Every Song Sounds The Same,” which is one of the most traditional sounding tunes on the album, Tim shows a ton of personality, which helps to sell the song. That wit and wisdom is also very apparent on the hilarious “A Drinking Song,” which is not exactly what you think it is – if you just go by the first verse. It’s very reminiscent of early Brad Paisley or some of Roger Miller’s finest work.

    Other standout cuts on the album include the infectious “Shore Drive,” with its’ contemporary arrangement as well as some brilliant steel work from Mike Daly, “I’d Be Screwed,” which in spite of its’ irreverent sounding title, is a tribute to the significant other in his life, and the thumping beat of “Straight Up.” He gets a helping hand from the very talented Julie Forester (who should be a star herself) and Kristi Manna on “Cool Kind Of Crazy,” and closes out the disc with a track that I think is the highlight – “Shit List,” though for obvious reasons, I don’t see it being a single!

    All in all, a very good album from a gentleman who has paid – and continues to pay his dues. I think it’s all about to pay off, but then again, someone who has played behind Olivia Newton-John hasn’t done too bad, has he?

    While Nashville is sometimes considered a guitar town, [this artist] nd his keyboard have developed quite a following.

    He’d often be requested to play some of his originals such as “Beer’s Good Food” and “Every Song Sounds The Same.” [He] recently released his “Livin’ Breathin’ Havin Fun” CD that contains those two tracks, along with eight other great songs…

    [He] is an Army veteran and has taught at the military school of music. He’s also toured with Olivia Newton John, Mark Chesnutt and Blake Shelton.

    He does weekly shows at stageit.com, which allows fans to watch a show from the comfort of their own home. Some of the shows have an admission charge of $5, but he also does many “Pay What You Can” shows. He makes clear that he loves to play his music for people.

    [He] supports a number of charities, including the Wounded Warrior Project, Olivia Newton John’s Wellness Center and any charity that supports children.
