“I feel I was put on this earth to create music that is relatable, and touches the hearts and souls of people.”
Timothy Bloom delivers music that is rich and soulful. With the recent release of the deluxe version of his self-titled album, two-time GRAMMY® award-winner, Timothy Bloom’s, future is bright and exciting. He was recently named a VH-1 Soul “You Oughta Know Artist.”
Timothy’s music touches people by connecting with them in a very genuine way. “People are yearning for stories and songs that will fill their hearts and souls. That’s what we escape to when we can’t outwardly express ourselves. If you want to be happy, dance, cry or even be angry, it’s all in the music.” His music is pure. It is not made to fit into any specific genre. It is mad to fit life. Timothy says “Classify me as diverse…I have the gospel background, which is where I get a lot of my soul; the emotion in my playing. But my music is ultimately a fusion of many influences. I could never see myself doing one type of music. When anyone asks me who I’d like to work or tour with, I answer everybody.” In a recent interview, when asked about stepping out of the boundaries of his Gospel roots; Timothy replied “I can’t imagine God not letting me do this.”
Accompanying his new album, is a video for the single, Stand in the Way (of My Love), shot with Herbie Hancock, who plays his dad. According to Mr. Hancock, “Timothy is very talented, sincere, and passionate about good, relevant music. His music has all those elements. That’s a hard combination to beat.” Timothy’s exposure to different cultures is reflected in his music. You can here the influences of Rock, Folk, Gospel and R&B in his unique, signature style.
