He’s no stranger to singing, writing and performing, he’s been at it most of his life. And yet here he is over 20 years in, releasing a debut single. Meet my Local Catch of the Week, Timothy James from Braintree (now Holbrook). I’m excited to share this talented singer/songwriter’s music, story and interesting fun facts.
At first listen to James’ song “Whole World,” I couldn’t pin point who he shared vocal similarities to, and then it hit me. It’s John Michael Montgomery. And in fact, Timothy revealed that people often compare him to the 90s hit maker of songs like “Sold” and “I Swear.”
James’ warm, golden tones go down easy, and are perfectly suited for storytelling, as his delivery draws you in with every word. Those inviting honeyed vocals profoundly express his emotions throughout the lyrical journey. You can’t help but wonder where his tale will take you.
Timothy’s story is incredibly interesting, from the kinds of music that inspire him to his experiences in the music world. Find out here who’s guitar he won in a songwriting contest. And you’ll also discover what famous rock band HE played for.
Supporting our New England musicians is undeniably important. Today’s hitmakers wouldn’t be where they are without their hometowns and regions behind them. Showing up for things you believe in is key. So, get to know the people behind the voices. You can do that here, and now, by learning more about my Local Catch of the Week, Timothy James from Braintree.
