Tim Sincere is a songwriter rooted in classic English pop.
Born in the leafy suburbs of South West London, and raised on a musical diet of Beatles, Stones, Kinks and Who, Tim was inspired to learn a few guitar chords after seeing the original English punk bands. He started writing songs and performing on 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 attracted the attention of Bill Wellings, a music industry veteran who had made his fortune producing covers of original songs from the charts in the 60's and 70's.
Bill had created the brand Hot Hits! and sold millions of LPs in the UK.
Tim signed a publishing deal with Bill's company.
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.
