“TIMBO IS KNOWN FOR HIS VERSATILE VOCALS AND HIS UNIQUE STYLE THAT BLENDS ELEMENTS OF SOUL, GOSPEL, FUNK, AND MORE…A TENDER TRIBUTE TO FORGING A LOVE AS CONSTANT AS THE SUN AND MOON, YET AS FLEXIBLE AS THE WIND. THE SONG’S MINIMALIST INSTRUMENTATION OFFERS SPACE FOR THIS EARNEST, SOUL-CLEANSING VOCAL DELIVERY.”

Some write music as a creative release. Others feel compelled to perform. For country-soul singer-songwriter Leon Timbo, music is used as a form of growth and healing. Growing up the son of two pastors in Jacksonville, FL, music was integrated into his life from the very start, as a way to communicate spiritual experience. At sixteen, Timbo began singing and by age twenty, he began playing the guitar and performing in a serious way, inspired by artists Bill Withers, James Taylor and Tim Miner. Timbo’s country sound incorporates equal measures of vintage soul, gospel, folk, R&B and even modern blues making for a unique experience that some have described as ‘transparent soul.’ Timbo is currently on the road supporting his new music and has just finished touring with 2x-Grammy Award-winning bassist, Marcus Miller, during his residency with Blue Note New York, which included two sold-out shows.
