Tim Gerwing Tim Gerwing

Tim Gerwing was born in Canada, but experienced his childhood in Germany. Early lessons in classical piano gave way to experimentation with jazz, electronic, new age, progressive rock/pop, and Middle and Far Eastern musics. The purchase of his first synthesizer and electric guitar in the late 80's were turning points and very much shaped what was to become his signature sound.

Summer of 2002 saw the release of Gerwing's first solo album, “B2B”. The album received international radio airplay in Canada, Japan, Holland, Australia, Poland, Russia, and the USA. Music from BTB was recently featured on the Genie Award winning “Suzuki Speaks”.

Gerwing's 2nd major release, “The Butterfly Effect”, is now available and receiving critical acclaim in Canada, Europe, Siberia, and Asia.

Tim Gerwing performs on keyboards, guitars, electronics, and Middle Eastern percussion both solo and with world musicians including Boris Sichon (www.sichon.com), Tarun (Beats Without Borders), and Serwan Yamolky (www.serwanyamolky.com) in Vancouver, Canada. He has been a guest musician with Gord Grdina’s Haram (www.gordongrdina.com), with artists on the Canadian Copperspine Records (www.copperspine.com) label, and is co-founder of the 30 Days Project (www.thirtydaysproject.com).

Recent highlights: performances with Boris Sichon at the Kremlin in Moscow, Yungchen Lhamo (www.yungchenlhamo.com) at the Mission Folk Music Festival, Terry O’Brien (Anomolous Disturbances), David Picking, Besart Hysniu, and a featured remix of Steve Jansen’s “Ballad of a Deadman” with David Picking/Rhinoceros (www.samadhisound.com).

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
