Tim Gallaher / Bio

In 2011, the music video for Tim’s song, “WHITELICK”, from his first album, Sunlight Machine, screened at various underground and experimental festivals throughout the USA, including the MIX 24 NY Queer Experimental Film Festival, the San Francisco Underground Short Film Festival (where Tim sang live to accompany the film and soundtrack), the Oakland Underground Film Festival and the ATA Experimental Film Festival. KQED reviewed the ATA Festival and chose “WHITELICK” as one of their favorites, calling it “inventive”.

Tim performed his songs "Slip", "Rejection Blues" and "Astronaut" with video accompaniment at several Project>Soundwave Bay Area performances in 2004 and 2006. His song “Slip” is featured on the sound art compilation CD released in the spring of 2004, Project>Soundwave: Exploring the Nature of Sound.

Several songs from Sunlight Machine are featured on the soundtrack for various feature films. "All Become of Us" is the opening credits soundtrack in the indie feature, The Low Life, directed by George Hickenlooper (Mayor of Sunset Strip, Hearts of Darkness), and an ambient version of the song,"Become”, can be heard in several scenes as well. "That We Could Fly" and "WHITELICK" are featured in the soundtrack to Troma Film's Tromeo and Juliet, which was writer/director James Gunn's (Super, Slither, Dawn of the Dead) first feature film. “That We Could Fly” is also in the soundtrack to the indie feature, April Is My Religion.

Tim’s song "Sun Smokes Cigars", from Sunlight Machine, was played on KCRW Santa Monica (hosted by Chris Douridas) several times in the early ‘90s.

Between 1999 and 2005, Tim performed frequently, singing live to accompany both backing tracks and his films and videos at such venues as The San Francisco Fringe Festival, The Victoria Fringe Festival, the Phoenix Bar, the Oxygen Bar, Black Hole Club and various other SF venues and parties.

In 1987, Tim opened for the punk band, the Descendents, with a puppet show in St. Louis, Missouri.

In the late ‘80s, Tim played keyboards and sang backing vocals in the Los Angeles-based experimental band, Waldo the Dog Faced Boy.
