“...voice is over the dark, the place where there's nothing to hang on: it comes from a part of yourself that simply knows, expresses itself, and is.”
— Jeff Buckley
Tim Pitchford is a passion-filled, critically acclaimed composer, singer/songwriter, musician, audio engineer, and producer based on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. As a professional & full-time musician, Tim shares his music both nationally and globally online to help others appreciate life through music.
As a child, Tim’s father was the owner of a country music radio station so there is little wonder why his work has been inspired by the likes of Australian artists, Graeme Connors, John Farnham, and Lee Kernighan. He was drawn to the meaning and purpose behind songs of substance. Nowadays, his vocal style is Soul Arena Rock, and his songwriting is infused with Soul, Blues, Jazz, Metal, Rock and Progressive Metal influences.
As a musical story-teller, Tim feels humbled by the huge responsibly he has to deliver meaningful stories to his listeners. His mission is to use his own life experiences to inform his lyrics, thereby giving his listeners purpose and hope. Wearing his heart on his sleeve, Tim finds beauty in the trials and triumphs of life and music is the vehicle he uses to share his insights with the world. Uniquely, Tim’s humility and passion for humanity is evident in his soul-filled tracks. Fueled by an innate need to help others, Tim’s tracks take listeners on an incredible ride.
Tim is currently Lead Vocalist of Gold Coast-based band, MISTRAM, which has supported and shared the stage with industry giants such as The Angels and Phil Emmanuel. Grounded in a genre-bending style, that MISTRAM brand, ‘New Rev’, (short for new revolution), their sensual sound encompasses blues, roots, grooves and smooth moves that not only soothe the soul but enliven it!
As a vocalist, pianist, producer, & audio engineer, Tim is a sought-after musician, playing & mixing at gigs, festivals, and functions throughout the East Coast of Australia.
Nestled in a purpose-built studio on Tamborine Mountain, “Symphony Hill Studios”, Tim takes pride in composing and producing a vast array of production library music for licensing use within Film & TV around the world. Composing music to the genres of orchestral arrangements for action, drama, horror, crime, and romance as well as light-hearted inspirational solo piano and organic instrumental pieces. Working alongside incredible music libraries in both Europe and the United States, Tim is determined to spread the message of authentic music far and wide around the world.
When he is not sharing his spirit with listeners, he can be found enjoying family life, and is one heck of a handyman, having built his music studio as an investment for future productions. He is a fantasy and sci-fi lover and enjoys watching a flick or two with his beautiful wife and 2 daughters.
Simply put, Tim is here to live, love, laugh, learn and leave a legacy! If he can help one person to escape through music, one soul to feel more connected, one listener to learn to love again, then that is ‘mission accomplished’. Tim sings with spirit, composes with life, and is forever inspiring listeners to follow in his footsteps and live the life they have imagined.
