Catch Of The Week: Timmy Brown
Meet Timmy Brown from Norton
Everyone grows up having childhood dreams. Maybe you wanted to be an astronaut, a teacher, a race car driver, a movie star. But think of how few of us keep those dreams, and actually get to live them. It takes a lot of work, even more focus, and an unrelenting drive. Cue the Timmy Brown music.
Brown has known since he was literally in preschool, that music was his thing. He started playing piano, learning songs by ear, singing karaoke, and igniting the artistic spark that burned in his soul. With the support of family and friends, that spark has turned into a fire. People recently featured Timmy in an exclusive, highlighting his journey and his debut album, Good Life.
There was a lot of pounding pavement, soul searching, writing, recording, performing, booking, promoting, knocking on doors, rejection, and acceptance, that went on between the first tickling of the ivories, to living and working as a full time artist in Nashville. All that hard work has taken Brown from the dreamer to the “Good Life.”
Having time off his typically crazy tour schedule, thanks to the pandemic, gave Brown the opportunity to dig deeper, and create a more mature and more textured art. The result is a collection of songs that comes from the heart, and home…drips of sweat and beer, and puts something on the plate for everyone (including a song co-written by Chris Young and Eric Paslay). A highlight on Timmy’s album is the very personal, and touching tribute to his late grandmother, called “If You Were Here.” She was obviously a major influence in his life, and a big supporter of his dream.
This hometown talent is primed for national success. There’s no stopping the dream for Timmy Brown.
