sung with passion, emotion and retribution.”

At first listen one cant deny the haunting emotion that
fill's the voice of Tim Galliher. like a river flooding it's banks ,
the honesty in his story telling has a way of pulling you in and
not letting you go.
Born and raised in the rolling foothills of North Carolina Tim
has never been a stranger to Hard work. From the fields and farms
to mountain logging and construction sites, his work ethic was
forged from the sweat of his own brow, and remains the same today
even as a musician.
Tim Found his love for music early in childhood, and by age 17
had already earned his status as a Professional Drummer. And by age 22
has worked and toured with many notable blues and jazz artists, such as
Abe Ried Formally of the Blue Raggs and Jazz singer Nathen Hefner,
Tim also recently shared the stage Co headlining a fall festival with
Jim Avett father of the world renown " Avett Brothers ". With Tim's interests
always in different genres of music and instrumentation, when asked he always
reply's " I just always loved to play everything i could get my hands on, If it
made a sound, i was playing it . "
Taking a break In late 2003, Tim went on to marry and have children.
But with the tragic passing of his wife in 2009, the music quickly came calling again.
Originally writing and composing to heal open wounds the songs soon became
like a water faucet that cant be turned off, music constantly flows out as he
strives to tell his story and to let others in the world know they are not alone in their
troubles and fears. The raw lyrics, strong work ethic, and genuine emotion in
Tim's voice connect him with local audiences who are lucky to see him play live,
and with fans throughout the world.
"Tim Galliher is probably the best kept secret in Iredell County - or even North Carolina. Thoughtful songs with soulful melody and understated accompaniment - in the true tradition of the great singer songwriters like Townes Van Zandt, ...Graham Parsons, Steve Earle and Hayes Carll - is what you can expect."
"Catch Tim in a small venue while you can. Some day very soon tickets will get very expensive and the stage will get much further away!!!!"
