    by Anton Partridge

    Tim has always been open, engaged and enthusiastic on any project we've worked on together. He brings a extra dimension to the process and is always accommodating to the artists idea's and needs. That aside, he makes a mean cup of tea.

    I have known and worked with Tim for many years. As well as being a hit record maker who is well versed in the machinations of the music industry he is a talented composer for film T.V. and library; which is where we have worked together most recently. Tim has always kept an open mind and maintains an infectious enthusiasm for new talent and new music. I think this energy and sense of fun is the root of his success. I can't recommend him more highly!
