Unbridled energy, intensity, and musical eclecticism! Tim Snider plays and loops the electric violin, guitar, cajon, and vocals creating aural landscapes that are forceful, confessional, and raw. Coming from Reno, Nevada, Tim picked up the violin when he was just three years old. Over the years, exposure to rock music, songwriters, like Ben Harper and Paul Simon, inspired him to play the guitar. His sojourns in Spain and Cuba introduced flamenco, salsa, and Afro-Cuban rhythms into his repertoire. His music can be described as a world-folk-jazz hybrid that is aimed at the heart, the brain, and the feet.
Tim lives in Portland, OR where he often plays a solo show that uses live loops to layer his stylistic violin, guitar, percussion and vocals to create a textured, inspiring experience. He also plays with a variety of musicians and bands like, Medicine for the People, Max Ribner Band, Amber Rubarth, House of Waters, Jelly Bread, Cody Beebe and the Crooks, Blake Noble, Chris Lay, and many more. In 2010, he released his first solo EP, "The Delmar Sessions", on which he played all the instruments and produced himself. This year he just released his new record, "Let Go, Jump in the River" and is currently touring to support it. With over 25 years of experience Tim is just getting started.... and the journey continues!
Artists are often described as having "a unique talent"; few epitomize this more than multi-instrumentalist Rodney Branigan. In fact, Texan-born Rodney's talents as a musician are as plentiful as the many instruments he expertly plays side by side. The London based singer/songwriter masterfully plays two guitars at once or both guitar and piano simultaneously. However, it is his ability to mix this extraordinary skill with his own heartfelt lyrics and rich, soulful voice that have led to Rodney Branigan becoming one of the most followed global performers of the moment.
