A Music Club dal 23 al 28 febbraio
Andrew Timli is an independent musician. After a very successful career working for international financial institutions, Andrew made his decision, to change his path and therefore to go back to his original love since he was a kid: writing and singing songs. For him music has always been one of the greatest passions in life which had been uncovered to the public until 2011. His destiny brought him to Ticino. The region was so full of arts and music that he got convinced he has to publish his songs and start his way as singer/songwriter at a professional level. He started playing in local restaurants but also performed on streets and theaters. To him the place where he performs doesn’t make a difference – small or big - he’s enjoying to tell his stories to the audience. A voice and a guitar - true feelings and thoughts.
Born in Budapest, coming from a poor family self-taught singer guitar player. He was eager to break out of poverty by learning and working hard spiced with passion and an ever longing for freedom.
At the age of 19 love brought him to Eger, Hungary where he meets Attila Szabo, one of Hungary’s greatest guitar and violin player. For a year he had the opportunity to learn from Attila.
He became so amazed and excited about music that he wanted to give up his financial career concept and wanted to go to Music Academy. The pressure coming from work and Attila talked him down.
So he shuts the door to music for a while and made a career in finance but turning 30 he finally decided to leave his past and returning to his destiny and future writing good guitar music.
„I love my guitar and love real melodies. I write music about big changes in life, love, nature, disappointment, sadness, fear, envyness, death and rebirth, dreams and desire.” Criticism and value are not missing from his life and music. He sings truly from heart when he plays it is just him, his guitar and that makes his music so special. He is a son of Earth, Sun and Water. He loves surfing.
Sometimes his style a bit reminds of Ben Harper with the slide guitar, sometimes Jack Johnson with the grooves. Maybe as a result of his independence the audience can not really tell what genre he is in. It is bit of mixture of pop, soul, country, folk, blues. All of them and none of them.
