Timothy Paul has loved music since he was a child. He found an old guitar in the trash when he was 6 and begin playing. Timothy was inspired by great artists like Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye, and George Benson. He loves creating music that moves your soul. He can hear a sound and become inspired to make music from it. He would love to collaborate with Alicea Keys, Jayz, and others like Kanye. If he could open a show it would be great to open a show for Alicea Keys. The message he wants to share with his fans is music can change people because it can change our feelings. His most useless talent is his music composing gift.


Timothy Paul currently works with many community organizations promoting social and economic change. He has performed mostly at festivals and church concerts. The internet has helped launch my music career from his latest video. Timothy received much streaming across social media platforms. His favorite song to perform is Cherie Amour by Stevie Wonder. He admires George Benson and Kenny G.

The most trouble he has ever got into was fighting against a giant casino operator trying to put a casino in a distressed neighborhood. Timothy was frowned upon by individuals who do not understand the effect a casino can have on an urban community. He learned that the key to taking on challenges like this is the negotiate and bridle his words before speaking out on certain issues. The best advice given to me was never to allow anyone to stifle your dreams. He is already in the studio writing new music. He wants his music to bridge race and generations.


Timothy Paul, a native of Springfield, MA, is a veteran community leader with over 37 years of service providing leadership to non-profit organizations and formally recognized around the country and by both the   City of   Springfield and the   Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The recent LIVIN COVID-19 Song was produced after a video of Timothy  Paul singing goes viral with nearly  10 million views across social media. Timothy  Paul released his latest song and video to touch lives during the corona pandemic.

What the artist had to say:

What first got you into music?

I started singing in church when I was 3 years old. 

Who inspired you to make music?

My mother initially inspired me, and still does. She’s a brilliant musician herself. My father took me to music lessons and always attended my concerts as a child. It meant everything to me to see my parents at all my performances growing up.

How would you describe the music that you typically create?

I describe it as music that fits the occasion as needed. That’s how it comes out.

What is your creative process like?

Most ideas come to me in my sleep, or while I’m driving. Sometimes I take a simple motive, and I build layers around it. Other times, I may read something or see something in real life, and it inspires me to create.

Who would you most like to collaborate with?

Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder, Phil Collins, Questlove, John Williams, Kirk Franklin, Mary Mary, Jazmine Sullivan, Celine Dion, Eric Whitacre, Terrence Blanchard

What is the most useless talent you have?

No such thing. I would call it the least useful talent. Honestly, I think every talent I have, regardless of level, is useful as needed. I just don’t want to be disrespectful to the talents I’ve been blessed to have.

Do you sing in the shower? What songs?

I’m a choir teacher, so I do a lot of vocals in the shower. I also come up with beats in the shower.

What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?

I am a music teacher at Roosevelt High School in Minneapolis, and I am also a P.H.D music education student at the University of Minnesota. So, my plate is full.

Where have you performed? What are your favorite and least favorite venues? Do you have any upcoming shows?

I don’t have a favorite or least favorite. I just enjoy sharing music with people. As far as upcoming shows, I plan on looking into a possible virtual concert in my basement this summer, only because of our current COVID-19 situation.

How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?

The internet has been great for allowing independent artists to showcase their music without any hindrances or gatekeepers. There’s more music accessible to the public than ever. The internet has also made it harder to find great music because there is so much out there for consumption.

What is your favorite song to perform?

I have a song called "Alive" that is on my "Divers" album. It rocks

Which famous musicians do you admire?

Stevie Wonder, Brian McKnight, Marcus Miller, Aretha Franklin, A Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu, Chick Corea, Lauryn Hill, The Yellowjackets, Prince, Jimmy Smith, Dr. Dre, Pharrell Williams, Timbaland, Frank McComb, Jay Z, Mint Condition, Donny Hathaway, Phil Collins, Ray Charles, Queen, Robert Glasper, and many more…

What is the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?

I got suspended from school for skipping class…hanging out in the band room.

What is the best advice you’ve been given?

My mom always tells me to plan the work, then work the plan.

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

Creating more collaborations between industry and music education. Our schools need a greater connection to the music industry. It will make a music career more relevant when a child can have real experience in music beyond the traditional formats that exist in schools today.

What’s next for you?

I’m so close to finishing my doctoral work at the University of Minnesota in 2021. I will continue creating and sharing more music from Divers, being a great educator who teaches music, looking to collaborate musically with great people, and providing opportunities for others to create and develop their gifts and talents.
