For anyone questioning where music good music has been and where it’s headed, there’s a guiding light on the horizon: Timothy Bloom.

The route Timothy has traveled to get to this point has been just as diverse as his musical style. Born in El Paso, Texas and raised primarily in Fayetteville, the artist is the third of five children born to pastor parents. Timothy was introduced to various cultures and lifestyles when his father’s stint in the army stationed the family in such varied locales as Germany, Alaska and Oklahoma.

Because secular music wasn’t allowed in the house, a teenaged Timothy—the self-described “rebel” of the family—began taking his parents’ keys and sneaking into the car to scan the radio dial. He’d also
discovered girls. “I wanted to write love letters and poems and sing to the girls I had crushes on,” he recalls with a laugh.

“That’s what inspires me,” he says. “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.”

With geyser-like force, Timothy’s pure, natural talents as a singer/musician are gushing to the surface by way of self-titled album simply “Timothy Bloom”. He proves that the soul of music is not lost in the noise that is the modern music scene.

From “River Runs Deep” which is reminiscent of an early Prince ballad to the Bluesy riffs of “A Long Time Ago” to the folksy guitar driven “Your Future” to the contemporary R&B groove of “Stand in the Way (of My Love)” you can expect even more groundbreaking things to come from him with this album. Each song is a unique experience but all fit together to tell a beautiful sonic story.

Don’t even think about bottling him, as R&B. He’s much more than that. Yes, you can hear glimpses of Prince, Bill Withers, Marvin Gaye and Sam Cooke in his music and lyrics. But there’s also Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, Jimi Hendrix and Lenny Kravitz thrown in for good measure. It’s that fusion—peppered with soul, gospel and country—that courses throughout the album.

“Classify me as diverse,” says Timothy. “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.”

Timothy’s past accomplishments also show how diverse his music talents are. A few years ago Timothy came out with a groundbreaking song and video titled “ Til the End of Time.” The buzz over the Internet was huge, it was iTunes single of the week release week and billboards charting at #91. But Timothy’s talents extend to songwriting and producing as well. He has written and produced for Motown Legend Smokey Robinson as well as writing and producing Grammy Award Winning Songs for both Ne-Yo (“Say it” on Because of you) and Chris Brown (“All Back” on F.A.M.E).

Although today’s music industry likes to pigeonhole artist into distinct categories, Timothy strives to break the norm and just create amazing music.
