He was also named VH-1 Soul You Oughta Know artist in October. “If a woman’s upset, you need to get this album and play it from top to bottom,” said Bloom. “Get some candles, a little incense, get some bubble bath, some hot baby oil, and just play it out. Thank me later.”

Raised by two preachers, Timothy was born in Texas but reared in Fayetteville, North Carolina. As a young boy, Timothy was only allowed to listen to gospel music. He grew up on artists like the Staples Sisters but one day he ran away to the car, turned on the radio and the first song he heard was "Lay lady Lay" by Bob Dylan and this influenced his decision to become a secular musician. He has a wide range of influences, including Bob Dylan, Prince, Jeff Buckley, Marvin Gaye and Jimi Hendrix. The North Carolina raised singer, songwriter and producer who plays piano, guitar, bass and drum now makes Los Angeles his home.
