Timber (guitar, mandolin, 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 song-craft.
