“My goal with music is to create a wellspring of relief and empowerment, so when people need those things they know exactly where to get them.”
New York native Tim Stout is a refreshing, vibrant take on what a pop act can be. growing up in Dobbs ferry, NY, stout lost his father to the attack on the world trade center. Through years of trial and error, he found the most effective way of working through trauma to be a theatrical and musical performance. self-taught on guitar, he began writing songs of love, loss, gratitude, and intimacy, going on to open for Allen stone at Brooklyn bowl after just a few short months of showcasing his music in public.
From pop-funk hits to poetic ballads, stout’s music captures a deep emotional life, influenced by singer-songwriters such as ed sheeran, prince, jason mraz, and bruno mars. Now in collaboration with producer Cale Hawkins, stout stays true to an intimate approach in creating the music; all instruments are performed between he and Hawkins, while his vocals are recorded in a repurposed broom closet to make listeners feel that much closer.
Stout’s debut ep, the key to happy living, is available to stream now on all platforms.
