HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?!?!
Boys have been busy in our studio working on an original
C.D., as well as perfecting some of your favorite cover tunes
for any private affair. I bill them as 'The Ultimate House
band'. These guys separately are incredible musicians. Together -
chemistry makes them even better. Seeing this band live is
an experience you will not forget.

A native of New Haven, Connecticut, Lawrence doesn't even remember the day he wasn't playing guitar-- something he's been doing since the age of two-and-a-half. "My first instrument was a plastic Mickey Mouse guitar," he admits, "on which my parents swear I was playing real songs."
As a youngster, he cultivated his own concepts by listening to his musical heroes--including non-guitarists such as Count Basie and Lionel Hampton. He played acoustic guitar through elementary school, began building guitars before he turned nine, got his first Stratocaster at age eleven, and switched to electric guitar exclusively when he was about thirteen. Playing in New Haven Funk bands such as "Good News" and "The Lift" (which included saxophonist Marion Meadows), Lawrence soon developed into a first-call axeman for several of the most active players on the contemporary music scene. He has continued to perform with Meadows, while also cultivating associations with other notables like George Duke, Diane Reeves, Jonathan Butler, Alex Bugñon, Freddie Jackson and Najee.

He has subsequently been a staff singer for Sony Records, has had an original composition on "90210" as well as a music video on BET T.V. Timmy's vast studio experience has found him in recording studios all over the country. He is currently completing his second CD of original music.
Although he loves the studio process, Timmy thrives on live performance and the energy of a live audience. Besides local venues, he has opened for the likes of Freddie Jackson, Phyllis Hyman and Brian McKnight, just to name a few. Timmy and Jay Rowe have been working together on various projects since 1998.
