Timber, a Kentucky-Fried Chicago native, whose songs are in plenty, with more perpetually on the way. He attributes his from-the-heart style partly to what he calls, “an education on the Road”. From hitchhiking to freight trains, Dead Tours and Rainbow Gatherings, it’s exactly what he got. A self-taught guitarist, Timber traveled for many years, writing songs along the way, honing his skills on guitar and mandolin. Free Range Strange is a very fitting outfit for his on the go life and honest musical preference.
