ABOUT TIMOTHY BLOOM:
“I feel I was put on this earth to create music that is relatable, and touches the hearts and souls of people.” Timothy’s work sings the emotions of the human heart. “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.” Forged from a childhood of diverse experiences, powered by a kaleidoscope of musical influences, Timothy’s music defies category and refuses to be put in a box. “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 tone and texture caught the eye of skilled musicians early on. He began his career as a songwriter and producer writing for the incomparable Smokey Robinson (“My World”, “Fallin in Love”). Timothy then moved on to 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). Wisely, he came out from behind the board with his own EP, “The Budding Rose” which contained the beautiful and sultry video for the single “Til the End of Time.” Next, he released the eponymous album Timothy Bloom, with the deluxe edition dropping in October 2014. Musicians and music influencers have taken notice.
To help build up the next generation of musicians, Timothy speaks at high schools about pursuing music goals and the reality of the music business. He also works with the Gospel for Teens Youth Choir in Harlem, and has invited teens to be back-up singers for shows and TV appearances. “We need to take care of music’s future” is his mantra, and he devotes considerable energy to this goal. Timothy Bloom’s diverse gifts as a singer, instrumentalist, composer and producer are steadily lighting up the music scene. Savvy industry players are excited to see what he does next. When asked what that is, he says “I’m going to keep making great music that touches people’s souls.” This will include new videos, a song on K. Michelle’s new album, a tour, some unexpected new collaborations and of course, more composing and writing. CONNECT WITH TIMOTHY BLOOM:
