Born in Dorchester on the 9th November 1976, I was a premature baby… we moved to Portsmouth when I was 1 and a half.
My Dad was a Navy Officer my Mum was in the Wrens. I grew up with a love of the sea and I guess the sea front in Portsmouth still holds a huge amount of nostalgia for me. I’ve been in loads of bands over the years, from the age of 15 with Electric Dissarria to Among the Missing, arguably my most successful.
So why did I go solo? Well I always messed around with songs away from whatever current band I was in for several years. I guess just to satisfy myself more than anything, I never thought I would release a solo record or tour my stuff, I did the odd acoustic show and released material under the guise of 'the host sepia', but I was never really entirely happy with the songs or performances. So it was sporadically done and certainly not something I envisaged I would ever do for a full time career.
After a chance gig with Funeral Diner, Seth from the band threatened to put my solo album out, I thought he was joking and thought nothing more of it until he was back over 2 and half years later. When he asked me where said album was it came as a bit of a shock. It was just what I needed having improved and scraped many of the songs over the years to actually get something done. I pushed myself to write and record an album. So after spending a few weeks writing in my room I made use of a cottage in the middle of Dorset, three miles from anywhere to finish writing and recording a demo of tracks for the album.
Funnily enough on my way down to this I saw my friend Paulo who was working a post round on my street and he offered to record the material when I got back. After a few months spending evenings putting down material along with a few shows (one of which being for Jim of Millipeed records… who was taken with my music and offered to do the UK edition of the CD). I had two tracks left to record which I thought would work well with a drummer. I asked my friend Mark Braby of the Gamma Ray Ritual. We spent a few hours recording the tracks down live with Andy Coules I then drove back to Andy’s place to record the vocals and mix the track in one day.
On the 3rd of February the album was released, after an evening at Jim’s spent building the sleeves. A week later not only did another release emerge but a tour with Radio Mast, this ten-day tour saw us cross the UK and made me do something I never thought I’d do… a solo tour.
Since then it has rolled onto further shows tours and record releases, not to mention taken me around the world playing shows and touring in Hong Kong, Japan, Australia, Iceland, France, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the US.
Having spent the last year and a half living on the road touring as much as possible I learnt not only a lot about myself, but about how my music works and this has seen me further develop my skills.
This time on the road has also seen the mildly Jekyll and Hyde gesture of splitting me up into two guises after confusion about my constant skipping of styles confused people, Timothy C Holehouse was born in Mid 2008. Albums by both Tim Holehouse and Timothy C Holehouse arrive in February 2009.
This solo material is for purely selfish reasons, simply the honest truth… if you like it, I thank you from the depths of my heart, I am venting several inner demons and this is the reason I do what I do. There is no point in doing anything unless you feel so passionately for it you’re prepared to put your heart and soul into doing it.
And you know what, to quote Spencer Moody of the Murder City Devils: “I never heard a sad song that I didn’t like".
