Bio

My name is Tim Epperhart and I am a singer songwriter. Welcome to my Official Sonicbids website, here you find some of my songs that I have written over the years that I have been writing and recording. If you don't know me or my music then you're in for a lot. This website alone has a few of my recordings that i've let the general public listen to and trade as they will. I think I should be getting paid for all this sometimes, but i'm a pretty commited person; anyone willing to stop by and visit my website and say "Hey, this guy has a talent and i'm going to listen to what he has to say" then i'm cool with that. So let me tell you a little but about myself:

Im 25 years old and i've been playing the same guitar since I was 8 years old. I've actually been writing music since I was 14, I joined a band as a drummer and we rocked. We called ourselves "Ptakamus" - short for Ptak, the last name of a fellow teenage rebel named Brian Ptak that we looked up to. The story itself is a little like "Lynard Skynard" (The name), except we never made it that far. Even then I was writing my own songs, doing my own thing my old guitar that I named "Omar" after my great grandfather Omar. I actually got my guitar on Christmas of 1989- its a W-70 EB Winner. Now how many people do you know that play a "Winner"? Pretty cool I think.

I broke my left wrist on a steel rail 3 years ago. The doctor said that I probably wasnt going to be able to play guitar for a long time because artheritus will probably set in after the break would heal but I really did work hard at proving them wrong. I got a buzz saw and cut off my cast because I missed playing my guitar. All I knew was I had to play it and I did just that.

The break itself was really severe, it was bent into the grove of the rail and that was traumatic for me, I have overcome so much of the pain with just my music.

I have to listen to myself sometimes, though. I have written a lot about my experiences with my life. I like to keep a unique approach on everything that Ive done, alone or with my wife by my side accompanying me. I hope that you will hear this in my music, and know that I truly feel blessed to be able to share my thoughts with the whole world, and I hope that my fans, family and friends will understand that.

Ive been honored to play beside some very great musicians and songwriters in my day, in the same arena; for instance Shannon Morris, John Lofton, Steve Morris, Cory Keck, and Donnie Cox to just name a few. These are all great musicians and they're all probably going to hit big in one way or another. I know that Shannon Morris is probably the most influencial for me out of all these musicians. He's probably the best guitarist too,

Shannon Morris (www.soundclick.com/shannonmorris) sings "I'll be fine" and "Now that I need you" and "Cheshire alley cat" - great songs, mind you, all so very much worth your time to listen to if ever you shall get the chance.

While some say that musicians are the worst critics and I sort of agree with that sentiment. At the same time; we can listen to the most horrible song and understand the emotion of the artist, and be able to say I actually liked that while many people might think that in the back of there heads theyre the same ones that wont say what is really on their mind.

In my earlier years, I spent a great deal of time sitting at home at my mom and dads house in Jacksonville, Florida (my home town) playing to the local radio stations, just jamming out with my guitar. There were times I would get tired of playing to the Classic Rock station I always one way or another always went back to. I played to some classical musicals as well, lead style by myself, learning everything by ear as I went along.

My first recording "Classical Guitar" was recorded on an old computer using an overdub for a video camera recorder. I actually had to convert the song to .WAV from .AVI because thats the format it was in. I didn't know a damn thing about recording music or anything like that when I recorded that. So that's pretty cool I guess. I got a lot of shit for posting that song to www.garageband.com/theinvisibleman when I first hit the underground internet music scene though. I would like to think that my worst critics are probably the so-called "better musicians", the ones that'll never even come close to where I am with my music, but that's cool. I'm a humble guy, i've earned my place here; wherever "here" is.

The Invisible Man. Three simple words, it isnt what you think though. It represents the unseen, the unheard, the underdog, the ones who sit in their rooms playing guitar to the radio for hours on end, the ones who are over seen by the public eye: and who is the public eye you ask? Everyone who has ever picked up a guitar and pursued the dream of ever making it big without or even ever being heard on a public scale thats what The Invisible Man represents to me, the ones who will play for the joy, for the
