Bio


Singer, Songwriter, Producer, Multi-Instrumentalist, these are just a few words that can be used
to describe Timothy J. Wilson. This son of a preacher was raised twenty minutes from New York
City in White Plains, N.Y. Being so close to the big apple, he was afforded the opportunity of
performing in many venues all around the city. He’s performed at Café Wah, the Village
Underground, Justin’s, Club Groove, The Soul Café, Wilson’s, The Sugar Bar, etc. In late March
of 2011, Timothy relocated from NY State to Atlanta, Ga. to promote his “Kiss Me” LP, which
was released on his very own Tim’elody Records label. Not even in Atlanta for five months,
Timothy had already sold 1,000 copies of the Album hand to hand by the end of July. In Atlanta,
Timothy has performed at the Apache Café, Urban Grind, Kat’s Café, Centennial Olympic Park,
Marlee’s Coffee & Tea House, Georgia State University, Kennesaw State University, Jamaica
Flava, The Sweet Auburn Spring Fest, Salon Moraee, The Dogwood Festival, and has also put in
time “Street Performing” at Lil’ Five Points, and Atlantic Station. In February of 2012, Timothy
was crowned the winner for the month of January 2012 on the social networking site
Fametube.com; with the most votes for one of his live performance videos. In that same
month, Timothy was chosen by casting director Alpha Tyler as a featured singer, on a Season 2
episode of the BET show, “Let’s Stay Together”. In March of that same year, Timothy launched
his very own show, “Timothy J. Wilson Live!” at Food for life supreme where his
fans/supporters could come and see him perform an hour long show for free. In April of 2012,
Timothy was chosen by music industry veteran Shanti Das (Laface, Arista, Universal Motown) to
perform as the “Artist of the month” at her popular event, “ATL Live on the Park”, which always
brings out a host of music industry movers & shakers, professional athletes and celebrities.
About that performance, Rollingout.com wrote: “ATL Live on the Park Artist of the month,

musical talents.” Timothy was also a featured performer at the inaugural, Atlanta Street Food
Festival” held at Piedmont Park in July of 2012; where he performed for a crowd of over 8,000
people. As 2013 came in, it found Timothy in the studio recording what would become his
second EP, “Born to Love” which was released in the fall of that year as a free download on his
website. Not long after, he released the “Born to Love” music video. In the summer of 2014,
Timothy began performing a weekly show on Saturday evenings at Bishop’s Coffee & Tea in
midtown Atlanta, which helped increase his fan base tremendously. In November of that same
year, Timothy landed his first major film, playing the role of Verdine White, the legendary
bassist of the band, Earth, Wind, & Fire in the Warner Brothers film, “The Nice Guys”, starring
Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling. The movie was released on May 20, 2016. In May 2015,
Timothy released his third EP “LOVESONGWRITER”, quickly followed by the November release
of his fourth EP, “BEATS, BASS, PARTY”. A few months later in May of 2016 he released “The
Unplugged Sessions” LP. Currently, Timothy is getting ready for the release of a Brand new
