Tim Sincere is a songwriter rooted in classic English pop.
Born in the leafy suburbs of South West London, Tim listened to the Beatles and the Kinks through his older sister's bedroom wall. The glam rock of David Bowie, Roxy Music and Marc Bolan inspired Tim to learn a few chords, and when punk rock emerged, Tim started playing the London pub circuit with his own 3-piece punk band, The Optics.
Tim bought a 4-track tape recorder, and when he wasn't gigging, he was writing and recording, literally hundreds of songs.
He signed a publishing deal with Bill Wellings, a music industry veteran who produced covers of original songs from the charts in the 60's and 70's and sold millions of LPs in the UK on his Hot Hits! record label.
One of Tim's songs was selected for consideration to represent England in the Eurovision Song Contest.
Tim moved to the US in 1990 and lives in Santa Cruz, California, where he is a favorite on the lively music scene.
