Timothy Bowen EP Launch
An inspirational individual indeed this guy is one to watch/listen out for. Defying the odds of life and death Timothy Bowens music has reached greater heights and depths.
The last 12 months have been a wild ride for songwriter, Timothy James Bowen. 2015 brought Bowen commissioned works with Virgin Mobile Australia, his highly acclaimed EP, ’ Steel & Wood', a national Australian tour with Grammy nominated act, The Milk Carton Kids, multiple cameo performances at the world renowned Grand Ole Opry stage in Nashville, TN. and a song he co-wrote, ‘From Here On Out’, being chosen for the U.S. TV show, ‘Nashville’ and their subsequent series 4 soundtrack.
At Christmas of 2015, however, he was unexpectedly diagnosed with end stage Lymphoma and was given two weeks to live. Having endured an intense chemotherapy regime, he returned triumphantly to the stage in May of ‘16, while still completing his last round of treatment, to open for and play alongside his sister, Clare Bowen, of the hit U.S. TV series, ’Nashville’, for her inaugural and sold out Australian tour.
His show at 505 will be one of his first performances of 2017 and will be the Sydney launch of his brand new acoustic EP. With even more music planned for release in the coming months and a new lease on life, it’s sure to be a great year ahead.
