Tim Hern was born in western Pennsylvania and began singing at the age of ten. Being influenced by a family rich in the entertainment industry, his vocal abilities were encouraged wholeheartedly. At the age of fifteen Tim discovered the acoustic guitar and has been playing it ever since. In the early 1980's Tim was featured vocalist for several local bands before taking a break from music to raise a family. Tim has been partnered with Leslie Gray as Soulcatcher in The Valley Of The Sun for over 20 years. Tim has a Jazz Project “Semplice Libero” and a Jazz Duo with Pianist and Music Professor Raul Yanez. He has performed with the Grammy Award Winning Guitarist Carmine D’Amico as a Trio with Selwyn Reams and has had the privilege to play with his Surrogate Father Bernard “Pretty” Purdie, the worlds most recorded drummer. Currently looking forward to the time when the music will carry me around the world!
