Since joining with the band he has performed all over Lexington and surrounding cities. We asked Tim to
describe his style and he said
“I’m just a laid back guy that loves music and was blessed with a gift. I’ve found inspiration from every
genre from country to hip hop and back again. I grew up listening to gospel music, I remember when I
was younger if I woke up on the weekends to my parents playing gospel music or grooving oldies. I was
about to spend the whole day cleaning.” As he chuckled “In all seriousness I’m grateful for those days. I
was exposed to people like Earth, Wind and Fire, Al Green, Marvin Gaye Kirk Franklin, Herbie Hancock
and so many more.” When asked where Tim sees himself in the next few years with the band he
answered. “I see myself still hanging with these guys, God’s been good to us. They are family and I love
what we do. I don’t know what the future holds but I would love to be touring.”
