Bio

After spending the mid-00's touring the country fronting the power pop band LUZER, Timmy Sean has spent the last several years growing his beard and recording his first solo cd. Performing nearly every instrument heard on the record (including all of the drums, bass, guitar, percussion, and vocals), Timmy indulges nearly all of his influences, from Brian May of Queen on guitar, to Paul McCartney on bass, to Ben Folds on piano....often in the course of just one song.

Born in the mid 1980's, Timmy grew up in two worlds: the pop world of 90's and the classic rock 'n roll world of his uncles' legendary Beatles tribute show "Long Live The Beatles" (the longest touring Beatles tribute act in the world). Though Tim's songwriting with LUZER pretty evenly mixed elements of both old and new, the scale on his first solo effort clearly leans more towards the sounds of Brian Wilson's "Smile" and McCartney's "Band On The Run", than anything released in the internet age.

With the exception of the drum tracks (which were engineered and produced by multi-platinum producer Kenny Gioia at General Studios in NYC), Tim not only performed 99% of the instruments on the record, but also wrote, arranged, produced, engineered, and mixed the tracks himself...a true "solo record" in every sense of the word.

After leaving his label in late 2012, Timmy Sean relocated to the west coast and started fresh. Immediately following his first acoustic appearance in Los Angeles in spring 2013, Timmy was offered a two-month residency at the legendary Viper Room on Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood.

Coming off of the buzz from those performances, Timmy Sean and his new live band "The Celebrities" made their full-electric debut in summer 2013, performing at LA's hottest venue The Satellite opening for LA indie rockers (and sometimes Ray Davies of The Kinks backup band) The 88. On his fall 2014 tour, Timmy Sean will be joined by his LA-based keyboardist/vocalist Frankie Pedano (former lead singer of Fat City Reprise), along with NJ's own John Tiedemann (drums) and Michael J. Roxx (lead guitar), and with Philly bassist/vocalist Mike Vivas (Southwork/John & Brittany/Fat City Reprise).
