He’s just released an acoustic EP named after this song, and though it’s just a preliminary first taste, it’s already raising a ruckus in the holler. Some great songwriting here."
Tim is an Appalachian, self-taught Musician/Songwriter. He writes the songs that he has lived his entire life. From the Coal Mines of East Kentucky to the Sand and Gravel Pits of Central Alabama, Tim's Blue Collar mentality presents itself through his music.
Tim grew up in a middle class blue collar family. His dad is a Heavy Equipment Mechanic and his Mom was the Food Service Director at Pineville Independent Schools, where Tim Graduated.
He began his working career following in his family's footsteps, working full time in the Coal industry. This is were Tim first started writing Songs, putting the stories (life experience) he heard from his coworkers to music. His un-released song "Hard Work and Misery" is a direct tale from his friends.
Tim said: " People ask me, "where do you get the ideas for some of your songs?" I tell them, you just have to pay attention, we're surrounded by an awesome culture, listen and you will hear songs every where, in every conversation."
His 1st single "Pills and Poverty" is a story the people of Appalachia and really, small towns all around the country are familiar with. The prescription drug abuse epidemic is eating away at the very fabric of most rural communities. Tim said: "it breaks my heart every time I go home and see what drugs have done to my hometown. They're all good people, they just need more opportunity and actual help in getting off the pills. Seems like nobody wants to really help. I'm hopeful that my song will shine a new light on the subject, and maybe open some eyes."
