His musical career started as a teenager in the late 70's, playing his first original songs in folk clubs around the UK, gathering a band together to record and tour around Europe.
During the 80's, he gigged extensively with different line ups including an appearance at the legendary Glastonbury Festival. As the 90's approached, Tim concentrated mainly on writing, recording and setting up his own publishing company and studio – he was involved in the recording and production of BLUEBOY'S 1997 UK hit single REMEMBER ME.
A conversation with old friend Guy Bailey led Tim to a stint playing bass in Guy's internationally successful band the QUIREBOYS and the beginnings of the idea for the project that was to become DOGKENNEL HILL.
The band recorded their first album, the alt country tinged SWEETHEARTS OF THE RODEO which was released worldwide to critical acclaim in 2000. The album also featured as rhythm section Dave Tregunna (SHAM 69, LORDS OF THE NEW CHURCH) on bass and top London session drummer Simon Hanson (Grace Jones, Squeeze). This line up played several select London Shows including Shepherd's Bush Empire.
After a four year hiatus which saw some line up changes including Guy's departure and a relocation to France for Tim, work began on the follow up album ALL THE KING'S HORSES which took the band into darker and more introspective territory. They played a few London shows including the 100 Club and then moved on to tour the new record around France to their growing following.
Since then, whilst continuing to perform live all over France, Tim has been designing and building anew studio at his home in the Breton countryside and working on film soundtrack music.
As we move into 2016/17, Tim has just completed his first novel, a rock n roll mystery adventure called THE BALLADE OF NIXON TYME and is currently in the studio recording his third album.
