Singer, composer, conductor, music director, and a cappella innovator Mister Tim (Timothy Jones) travels the world performing his solo live-looping / modern choral music shows and workshopping and coaching student choirs and a cappella groups. He studied in the Masters of Choral Conducting program at the University of Colorado-Boulder with Joan Conlon and Lawrence Kaptein and holds a BA in Music, Vocal Performance emphasis, from the University of Utah.
His novelty piece for Men's Chorus, "The Pirate Song," is published (under the name Tim Y. Jones) by Alliance Music Publishing, Inc.
Mister Tim composes progressive modern choral works and arranges contemporary a cappella pieces for scholastic and professional groups. He is currently working on a series of commissioned pieces exploring technology in performance by concert band, jazz band, and/or jazz choir. Mister Tim also music directs a variety of professional and amateur ensembles in Longmont, CO through Vocality Music.
As one of the leading innovators in modern a cappella music, Mister Tim has created more than a dozen award-winning groups that have toured around the world. His groups include 2010 International Harmony Sweepstakes Champions Plumbers of Rome, comedy quartet and internet celebrities moosebutter, a cappella cover band Wonder Voice, indie-rock vocal band THROAT, beatbox quartet Mouth Beats, and the world's first (and only?) a cappella heavy metal band Placental Armageddon.
As a soloist, Mister Tim pushes the boundaries of vocal performance, using technology to 'live-loop' his voice on stage, creating songs in real time with just his voice and an astonishing array of vocal techniques and sound effects. Full bands, choirs, and soundscapes come to life as Mister Tim performs his one-of-a-kind, often quirky, always fascinating original songs, as well as delightfully skewed cover versions of hit songs. With a heavy dose of improvisation and spur-of-the-moment, influenced-by-the-audience flights of spontaneity, each Mister Tim solo show is unique.
