Biography:
After 10 years as a lead guitarist/backing vocalist, Tim Henry made a smooth transition into solo performing...
For Tim it has always been about a passion for music and the audience. When he was 14 he worked odd jobs to save up for his first guitar. Over the next few years he spent countless hours teaching himself Blues, Rock, Classical & Heavy Metal styles. Whilst in High School he began playing lead guitar in award-winning stage and rock bands.
In 1994 after high school he began his career as a professional guitarist, becoming very sought after in the northern NSW area. He then headed north to Brisbane in the late 90’s where he scored some great jobs for more established acts; impressing punters and work colleagues alike in roles ranging from lead guitarist in hard rock bands to guitarist/backing vocalist in acoustic duos.
 
In 2002 Tim studied for a Diploma in Contemporary Music, gaining valuable knowledge and skills in music business and performance. This year also found him delving into singing lead vocals part-time. By 2003 Tim had developed a hunger for a higher level of musical enjoyment, and wanted his music to have more personal expression. After strengthening his singing ability with professional lessons and focusing more on the acoustic guitar, he left his career as guitarist for hire and took up the new challenge of solo performing
He hit the Brisbane club & pub circuit again. The level of connection with an audience in this new role was exactly what Tim was searching for. In 2007 Tim packed up and moved down to the music capital of Australia, Melbourne. Arriving on a new scene has given Tim a fresh new enthusiasm.
 
Over time and logging hundreds of gigs, Tim has grown a strong work ethic and extensive experience on stage in a variety of situations from rough pubs to up-market venues such as the Hope Island Golf Club and Treasury Casino. His experience also includes many corporate functions, weddings and private parties.
 
With over 15 years experience on stage, Tim continues the enjoyment of entertaining a
crowd with the music he loves.
