Tim Snider - Violin Warrior of Nahko and Medicine for the People
Tim Snider wanted to play violin from a very early age. An Itzhak Perlman performance on Sesame Street when he was just three-and-a-half years old was his earliest musical inspiration, and it was classical music that first provided the impetus to learn his instrument. Over the years other influences came into play, from exposure to rock music (he dropped the violin and picked up a guitar), a Ben Harper gig turned him onto songwriting, and sojourns in Spain and Cuba introduced flamenco, salsa and Afro-Cuban rhythms into his repertoire. Returning to college, he spent a year studying jazz, and rediscovering his love of classical music and went back to the violin.
Today Tim lives in Santa Monica and is touring with Nahko and Medicine for the People. He also performs solo layering live loops with violin, guitar, and vocals. A sound that has been described as "a world-folk hybrid aimed at the heart, the brain and the feet." He has recorded and produced three of his own albums as well as worked with many other artists such as Talib Quali, the Trans Siberian Orchestra, Dave Eggar, Amber Rubarth, House of Waters, Saeeda Wright, Capela (Brazil), and many others.
