ALTERNATIVE SOUL WITH CHRIS TIMBERS


East coasters might remember him as the lead singer of the popular band, 'Less Traveled'. An accomplished singer and songwriter, Chris Timbers draws inspiration from soul music, contemporary jazz, blues, rock and country. His performances combine many of the best-loved radio classics of all time with his acclaimed originals.


So great to have you for our interview today Chris. Tell us about your latest single and the impact it's had on your fans so far? :

My latest single is called "Don't Mind The Rain". It seems to be doing well out of the gate. Recently getting on spotify playlist. I suppose it's a little too early to tell, but it's off to a good start and grabbing attention.

Do you get more attached to songs over others?

I think so. I'm probably a little more attached to the songs that are derived from some sort of heartbreak or pain. Seems ironic I suppose. But those are the ones that I believe I had to write to stay mentally healthy.

What makes your single and the time you spent on the music memorable for you?


At the time i wote "Don't Mind The Rain" I was incarcerated. The whole concept behind the song is that no matter the bad weather or tough times you have in life, they are an opportunity to learn and grow as an individual. So, use them in that way. Because there will definitely be some in life. That's for sure.


Any tried or true techniques you have when creating the music?


I prefer to write the music first. It just gives me a sort of flow and melody that makes it easier for me to write against.

What are you most looking forward to in 2023 with your new music?

I've been working on a lot of songs. SO, we will see what sticks. I'm excited about a new single around Valentine's Day called "Loving You". And March in Austin, Texas. Anything in 2022 that you experienced that you're either leaving behind or bringing with you into 2023?

This industry is constantly changing. So, for me it's taking all I've gathered or learned and applying it. The learning and growing just never ends. Where can our readers go to learn more about your future projects?!
