Timothy Minneci began playing music in college in the rock band 10Watt, which evolved post-college into The Stepford Five.
The band released three albums and an EP over ten years before going on hiatus in 2008. Taking a break from music, he released several books, including the 2013 book Power Ballad, before returning to music in 2016 while writing a fiction novel, creating a track to correspond with each chapter. In September 2017, he released Molokai on Reverbose Records, his first collection of ambient/electronic instrumental music. His second album Sanur was released in January 2018.
