Biography

Tim Ponzek is a prolific songwriter and performer who easily blends the genres of Classic Americana, Retro Country, and Roots Rock to create his vast anthology of original songs! Tim released three new Singles in August 2013 that highlight his superb songwriting talents - Any Road In America, All The Prayers and Baby At The Wedding (2013).

Tim's 2012 release Beautiful Rain showers us with 5 contemporary Country Americana tunes. Love and loss pour down through Tim’s finely tuned songwriting and intricate arrangements. My Mother's Quilt, Tim’s 2011 release is a heartfelt Americana EP written to celebrate life's passages, special moments and heartaches.

Tim's CD Every Room An Ocean View celebrates his love of Hi-Fi Country and Roots music. This album follows his recordings Faded Blue Dreams and Right To The Edge. Tim has also added to the legacy of well-loved Christmas classics with his EPs, Christmas Singles and Believing in Christmas, both featuring his wife Lisa Pressman.

Originally from Philadelphia, Tim is a versatile musician performing on classical guitar as well as piano and vocals. His repertoire ranges from Country, Roots to Americana with a hint of Jazz and Classical. Tim studied arranging in New York with world-renowned arrangers Don Sebesky and Manny Albam. Since moving to the Southwest, Tim has focused on his writing, singing and performing.
