Timur Yusef on SoundBetter

Timur’s career so far has been wide ranging stylistically, but always anchored to the same core concepts for over 12+ years of professional experience playing live, in the recording studio or even in the rehearsal room: get the best possible performance of the ideal part for the music with an emphasis on groove, sound and musical sensibility.

“We share our music to express, not to impress."

From London, Timur graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston in 2008, playing intensively in and out of school and around the East coast.
