Act Profile

Tim Barton

Tim is well known on the London circuit having played most bars and clubs over the past ten years. He is well respected not only by the clients he has performed for, but also from other musicians around the country. Extremely talented on guitar and with an amazing vocal sound Tim can perform acoustically or with full backing tracks.

Having enjoyed early success in the music industry back in his home town of Melbourne in the late 80s, Tim is now a sought after session player, engineer and producer whose relaxed, humorous, natural style has brought him much acclaim.

Tim's main influences - apart from Australian Rock and Jazz artists - are the likes of Prince, Incognito, James Taylor, Jose Feliciano, and, more recently, John Butler Trio.
Tim is equally at home playing at intimate, exclusive private parties or to thousands of party-goers for example at the Clapham Common 'Toast' festivals.

Testimonials

I met Tim in the early 90's when he was performing in London (Wandsworth Common). He made the weekends something to look forward to. Great singing, guitar playing and sense of humour. How nice to see you are still doing this!

-Carmen


5 stars for Tim. Very nice guy, professional, and a great voice, everything we could have hoped for

-Steve


Can not fault Tim Barton. He set the mood perfectly for our wedding breakfast. Played the right tracks, the right volume, and the right speed for the setting. He was a hit with our guests and would highly reccommend him.

-Adam Davies October 2014


I would just like to leave some feedback. Tim Barton played at our pub on the 6th July and I would just like to say how helpful and reliable we found your company. As well as a smooth service Tim was excellent and a very friendly man.

I was just wondering if you knew of any good bands or singers that would be available to play on the 2nd August. Short notice I know but we would preferably like to continue the success of the 6th.

-Bryony Black July 2013


The best solo act in London.

-Covent Garden Walkabout
