Tim O'Connor is an English Folk/Rock singer, songwriter and guitarist who has been performing and recording since the late Seventies. His earliest musical influences were John Renbourn, Roy Harper, The Kinks, The Pretty Things, Jethro Tull, Yes and Led Zeppelin. Tim grew up on the coast of Holderness in East Yorkshire, listening to the rhythms of the waves and calls of the seagulls. At age 14 a school friend showed Tim how to play a very basic boogie rif on guitar, and the Bug had bit hard! Tim started to write his own songs pretty much from day one. Tim began performing publicly with the band 'English Films', from Withernsea, in the late 70s, playing original rock songs written by Tim and Derek Pearson. Then some stuff happened and Tim woke up this morning! How rock and roll is that? Though now recognised as a solo performer, Tim O'Connor fronted the band cowfisH for 20 years until 2013, when having disbanded, cowfisH became the recording vehicle for his more rock oriented compositions. Tim now lives in the Yorkshire city of Hull in the UK, which he finds strangely refreshing. He has released a large catalogue of albums, 27 to date, available on his record label, Uilleand Music. Tim's latest album, released August 2013, is 'where the monsters live' on Uilleand Music, and is available for download at
