Timber (guitar, vocals)

Timber is a rare bird, with unique, original songs in plenty and more perpetually on the way. He attributes his from-the-heart style to what he calls, “an education on the road.” From hitchhiking to hopping freight trains, following Dead tours and attending Rainbow Gatherings, that’s exactly what he got. A highly skilled self-taught guitarist, Timber traveled for many years, writing songs along the way, honing his skills on guitar and mandolin and collecting the experiences that became the inspiration for his songcraft. Free Range Strange is a very fitting outfit for his on-the-go lifestyle and honest musical preferences.
