Biography

Timothy has been playing piano for 37 years, 27 of them in public. He has worked as a solo performer and in a multitude of bands in Adelaide, South Australia where he is a much sought-after keyboard player.

His interest in solo piano he credits to hearing solo guitarist Leo Kottke in his teens. He has also admired the style of other solo guitarists including Dan Crary and Doc Watson.

Timothy's favourite style of music, he says, is jazz-bluegrass or 'Newgrass' music. Among keyboard players he admires but has no intention of trying to emulate are Fats Waller, Chick Corea, Philip Aaberg and among other musicians Mike Marshall, Béla Fleck and Edgar Meyer.

In 2001 he independently released 'Uncovered Keys', a CD of original piano solos, which has been favourably reviewed by Indie Music Review, Solo Piano Publications, Wind and Wire, The Instrumental Weekly and Alternate Music Press. Timothy's music has been described as 'non-pedestrian', 'challenging', 'a sub-genre', 'brimming with creativity', 'highly accessible', 'refreshing & awe-inspiring' and having a 'casual elegance'.

“His music is borne from the delicate combination of extraordinary musicianship and a deep, intuitive sense of composition.”

In 2005, he released his second collection of original piano solos, 'Scenes from the Neighbourhood', which includes a bonus CD-ROM video track. The CD has also received amazing reviews from Solo Piano Publications, Wind and Wire, Alternate Music Press, Indie Music Review and New Age Reporter.

Timothy has just released his third CD, 'The Weight of Time'.
