TIMOTHY BLOOM is what R&B/Soul superstars are made of. He is the very definition of ‘smooth’.
He is a two-time Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter and producer. People talk about discovering their purpose on earth. Timothy knows his purpose without any hesitation or doubt. He says he is on this planet to “do music”.
With a voice like his, that cannot be disputed.
In fact, he almost had a contract deal with Motown when he was 15 years old. But his dad turned it down. He says at the time it was creating resentment and agitation.
So when he graduated from high school he moved to Germany and joined a boy band. He, literally, didn’t care about anything except music. Some people would say that kind of attitude is irresponsible. However, with as much talent that Timothy has, we call it visionary and laser-focused.
Timothy is the kind of artist that believes in himself and his talent, knows what he wants, and does not waver. He’s had faith in his life’s calling and refuses to get distracted. He says his music serves a personal purpose.
“My music has been a source of healing, of therapy. My demons, my struggles, these generational curses we harbor — they took a lot of spiritual healing, personal healing.”
But his music is not just about improving himself. His goal is to use his music to change the world and help make it a better place. He says:
“Nina Simone said it best. She said, ‘You’ve got to create for the times.’ There’s a lot going on in our world but we’re not creating for the times, you know. Everybody wants to party and just drag on. They’re drunk, they’re drugged up, they’re slapping on booties. They’re not creating magic that is, in a sense, going to make the world a better place.”
Timothy is putting the finishing touches on his brand new album “In Full Bloom”. The entire album won’t be out until early 2020. But this track is available for download now.
