Tim Morse

Tim Morse began his instrument instruction at a young age and started composing immediately upon picking up the guitar. He later moved onto the piano and studied as a music composition major, writing extended pieces such as a string quartet and two piano sonatas. During this time he performed with various rock and fusion bands and played on many recording sessions. Tim is also a published author and his book Yesstories has sold over 20,000 copies worldwide. His latest book Classic Rock Stories was published by the St. Martin's Press and was recently featured on the Howard Stern show. He continues to write for music magazines such as Mix, Guitar World, Vintage Guitar, Keyboard and Bass Player.

Tim's first album of original music was entitled Transformation. To realize his vision Tim enlisted Mark Dean to co-write and produce the project to completion. Mark proved to be an ideal choice as he performed many of the instruments in his virtuosic style. The lyrics on the album illustrate a series of events a person can go through in their lifetime and ultimately be transformed as a result of the experience. Transformation was well received by the Progressive Rock community and recognized as an original voice, in the tradition of bands such as Yes and Genesis, yet recorded and performed with a modern edge.

Tim's latest album is called Faithscience and will be released by AEP in early 2012. The project started out as a concept album based on the life of Charles Lindbergh, but eventually strayed from that original vision to be more all encompassing. The music on Faithscience continues where Transformation left off, exploring the best of Progressive Rock. As the producer of the project Tim was able to get some of his favorite musicians to participate including Jerry Jennings on guitar and the David Ragsdale (of Kansas) on violin. In addition to the release of Faithscience Tim continues to perform with Parallels (Yes tribute), After the Beatles and the Jerry Jennings band. He is the process of putting together a new band to perform original music.
