Biography

TIM the Band is currently performing shows in Colorado and California. Founded six years ago by Chris Olsen (keys) of Boulder and Dan Pearson (sax) of Eureka, CA, TIM the Band was an escape from reality. Not unlike the founders of Jazz who bared their souls with their music, TIM the Band has woven a thread of their own creating a tapestry of significant original music. "My deep love for Jazz, Funk and Fusion brought me to an edge' says Olsen, 'my choice was either step off the edge or drown into mediocrity...Dan and I both chose to step off of the edge and create TIM. Speaking for both of us, there was no other way we could reclaim or maintain our sanity except to compose, perform and record what was flowing from our souls...I don't know how to explain it. We're fortunate to have found musicians in Colorado and California that could relate and come ready to perform with clear minds and a yearning for something original."
