Being raised in Houston, meant that Tim was unable to escape the influences of the vibrant folk and country scene that had a foothold in the area.
With his forthcoming album Magnolia City, Tim pays respect to his musical heroes Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson. The songs on the album were recorded in the home of country music, Nashville, Tennessee under the direction of Norbert Hamm, who has produced Herbert Groenemeyer – Germany’s most successful artist with over 13 million albums sold. “Where I grew up had a big influence on this record. Living in Berlin, Germany for the past 15 years has not always been easy for me. Sometimes you feel like a fish out of water. So I sing about my longing for Houston, my stories of love, travel and personal relationships, all wrapped up in a neo-traditional country style of music.“
