Indie Connect Welcomes Amazing Alternative-Soul Artist, Chris Timbers

Indie Connect is proud to welcome Northern Virginia native, singer/songwriter Chris Timbers to it’s stable of unique artists. Chris draws inspiration from soul music, contemporary jazz, blues, rock and country.  He is a rootsy, alternative-soul singer with earthy acoustic songwriting. Chris first made his mark on the VA music scene with the band Less Traveled.

Less Traveled debuted their album Nobody in 2000 and Timbers quickly gained notoriety as the bands lead songwriter. The album led to regional touring and he became a full time musician. Timbers shared the stage with Jake Phillips (lead guitar and vocals) and veteran players like drummer Bruce Guttridge (Carl Filipiak) and bassist Gary Grainger (John Scofield). Timbers’ songwriting also awarded him an endorsement with Godin Guitars and a chance to open for Agents Of Good Roots, Merles Saunders and Tim Reynolds (Dave Matthews and TR3).

After the bands dismantling, Timbers moved to NYC where he began his career as a solo artist.  A frequent performer and friend to many in the Brooklyn music scene, Chris sat in as a session guitarist on several hip-hop record projects and continued to fashion his original style and technique as a singer/songwriter.

Timbers, now back in his home state, is presently promoting ‘Moving On’, his freshman release as a solo artist. It is packed with tales of his life journeys – songs that weave emotions through guitar playing that hits you straight to your core. “We are excited about Chris and his music” says Indie Connect CEO, Vinny Ribas. “He is a first class singer, writer and performer. Our plan is to launch Chris back into the spotlight, this time on the international scene where he truly deserves to be.”
