Timothy Robert Jones was born in the city of Memphis, Tennessee. He cut his musical teeth in church and school where he learned all sorts of styles, feels, and approaches to both the drums and keyboards. In high school and college, Timmy was a part of the drumline and percussion ensembles. He studied at University of Memphis earning a degree in both music and psychology. He played snare drum and became the drumline captain in both his senior years of high school and college. During that time he performed weekly on historic Beale Street and played with several local bands both on the road and in the studio. Timmy later moved to Nashville and joined a band called Remedy Drive. He toured hard with them for two years playing an average of 250 shows a year. He later linked up with Nashville duo, For King & Country. His second gig with them was the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. After joining their roster, the band won two Grammy's including the Album of the Year award for "Run Wild. Live Free. Love Strong." He spent five years on the road with them before deciding to leave the band to pursue other musical avenues. He played with LA based rapper Propaganda, also LA based David Ryan Harris (guitarist for John Mayer), Nashville artists by the name of Trala and Muddy Magnolias, and many more until just recently joining up with Chris Tomlin who has sold over 8 million albums worldwide. Tomlin is also the first Contemporary Christian artist to reach 1 billion streams on Pandora. To best represent the many different styles of music that he plays both on the road and in the studio, Timmy endorses Istanbul Agop Cymbals, C&C drums, Shy Baffles, and Innovative Percussion drumsticks. live credits include: Remedy Drive, Chris Tomlin, for King & Country, Riley Clemmons, Muddy Magnolias, KB, Andy Mineo, Kevin & Bethany Paige, Terry Mike Jeffrey, Jamie Randolph and the Darkhorse, Moriah Peters, Myla Smith, Jesi Kettering, Jeremy Camp, Jordan Critz, Blake Bollinger, Fireworks Over London, Steve Wiggins, Casting Crowns, Skillet, Propaganda, Rebecca St. James, Meredith Andrews, Laura Story, So She Sang, Lauren Daigle, Jesi Jones, Trala, We Are Messengers, David Ryan Harris, Jessy Wilson, Nicole Boggs and the Reel, Alex Kramer, Ryan Wingo, Tim Halperin, Mackenzie Wasner, The Handsome Loners, Ezra Salmine, Matt Hales (Aqualung) a word from Timmy: it's been an honor and a privilege to play music for a living! but what i'm thankful for the most is the deep relationships that i've had the pleasure of developing with many of the people listed above.  that's been the biggest blessing of all, not just the music but the people behind the music. all that being said, let’s get together and make some music!
