Singer, Songwriter, Producer, Multi-Instrumentalist, these are just a few words that can be used to describe Timothy J. Wilson.

He’s performed at Café Wah, the Village Underground, Justin’s, Club Groove, The Soul Café, Wilson’s, The Sugar Bar, etc. In late March of 2011, Timothy relocated from NY State to Atlanta, Ga. to promote his “Kiss Me” LP, which was released on his very own Tim’elody Records label.
