Tim Foley is a songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist whose sound doesn't settle easily into a descriptive box. You'll hear an amalgamation of musical styles he has gravitated towards, which include blues, jazz, folk, classical, and funk. Tim lived in New Orleans for a number of years, and his music is heavily influenced by the city’s tradition of musical experimentation. His songs, both instrumental and with vocals, range from upbeat foot stompers to relaxing melodic soundscapes.
He has a self-produced instrumental CD (see below), featuring original guitar instrumentals and is currently working on a new album featuring his jazzier material in a group setting.

My father once stated something that has always stuck with me; "You never know what's around the corner". Depending on your outlook, you could take this statement one of two ways. I have always leaned towards the positive side of it and believe that good things are happening around the bend, you just need to wait a bit. Months ago, my wife Kirsten convinced me to enter my music into the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest, presented by the Songwriters Association of Washington. For a lark, I entered. Last night I checked my email and found that I won Honorable Mention in the Instrumental Category for my song 'Caribbean Moon For Pat'. This certainly fits right in as the truth of my father's statement and a great way for me to begin my 2021 musical journey.

You'll find my instrumental 'Caribbean Moon For Pat' as well as all the the winners in a number of different categories that will give your earbuds a treat.

I'm very fortunate to have these gentlemen with me on this project. When thinking of musicians to play my music I needed people who were versital with a number of music styles and could play outside of a box. Basically, I needed people who are could play jazz because some of my music is jazzy sounding. I wouldn't call myself a straight up jazz musician but I know I'm not a rock player. I just play the music that's in my head and sometimes it comes out with a bossa nova feel; but other stuff is mixed in there with it so it's never all of one thing. With the current album we're working on, I chose to document my more jazzy sounding material and used a nylon string guitar for many of the songs simply because it's my favorite and sounds best with the material. We'll schedule our final session to record my song 'Fathead' and do some tweaking on 'Southold Morning'. Both are instrumentals.

These fine gentlemen and myself are The Tim Foley Group. We will perform at The Cat In The Cradle Coffeehouse, Byfield, MA on Sat. Nov. 9, 2019.
