Art After 5: featuring Tim Britt
Tim Britt, of Buffalo, NY is a self-taught musician who got his start playing as a teen in the local clubs of his hometown of Whitesboro, NY. Britt was awarded Best Original Solo Artist of 2012, 2013, and 2014 by Buffalo Nightlife Magazine and was named 2015’s Best Acoustic Act by Artvoice Best of Buffalo. In March of 2014 he won the Shea’s Performing Arts Center’s Once “No City Without Music” contest in overwhelming fashion. He has shared the stage with Boyd Tinsley of The Dave Matthews Band and opened for such artists as John Popper, Elephant Revival, Ryan Montbleau, Willie Nile, TR3 featuring Tim Reynolds, and Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees.
With an engaging personality, and vocals that range from a soft vibrato to a raspy rocker, from an operatic falsetto to a mellow baritone, this solo acoustic act continually proves he can entertain a vast audience, and never fails to impress. His original songs have an appealing style of honesty with bluesy undertones, and range from love songs, to contagious crowd sing-alongs. When Tim isn’t playing an all original show he has a set list of covers from numerous decades and genres, including everything from the Beatles, to Dave Matthews, to Johnny Cash, to AC/DC, to Whitney Houston, to Mumford & Sons. His ability to combine humor, sensitivity, emotion, and true passion in his vocals, with a percussive approach to guitar, intricate finger work, and a looping system that can layer harmonies, rhythms, and sound effects, make this entertainer not only unique, but a refreshing change to the music scene.
