A Northern Virginia native, singer/songwriter Chris Timbers, draws inspiration from soul music contemporary jazz, blues, rock and country. He coins his music "Alternative Soul".
A soulful, rootsy singer with earthy acoustic songwriting, Chris made his mark on the VA music scene with the band Less Traveled. Less Traveled debuted their album Nobody in 2000 and Timbers quickly gained notoriety as the bands lead songwriter. The album led to regional touring and he became a full time musician. Timbers’ songwriting also awarded him an endorsement with Godin Guitars and a chance to open for Agents Of Good Roots, Merles Saunders and Tim Reynolds (Dave Matthews and TR3). Timbers shared the stage with Jake Phillips (lead guitar and vocals) and veteran players like drummer Bruce Guttridge (Carl Filipiak) and bassist Gary Grainger (John Scofield).
After the bands dismantling, Timbers moved to NYC where he began his career as a solo artist. A frequent performer and friend to many in the Brooklyn music scene, Chris sat in as a session guitarist on several hiphop record projects and continued to fashion his original style and technique as a singer/songwriter.
Timbers, now back in his home state, is presently gearing up for his freshmen release as a solo artist. Expect to hear songs that tell tales of his life journeys and that weave emotions through guitar playing that hits you straight to your core.
