Timatayo grew up in New York on the mean streets. At a very early age he began playing guitar and writing music as an alternative to getting caught up in the wild street life of a city kid.
This was the great escape plan!
His first live gig was when he was ten and has been performing ever since.
In the Mid 90’s had three options- An arranged marriage in Sicilia, The Marines or Las Vegas to play music.
So off to Vegas it was for a year and a half in playing the casino circuit as a hired gun (guitarist).
After Vegas and four years of world travel he decided to settle down in the great city of Nashville, TN. This is where he perfected his songwriting skills and clean playing style as a session musician.
"I longed for the live venue and putting myself out there."
He Moved back to New York actually took up old family habits after awhile moved to Miami, Florida in 2002 and
decided to either work on his music or not play anymore.
"Although it is like starting over in the industry, I am determined to be felt and heard!" - TIMATAYO
"Main influence of this album is about coming to terms
with my past and finally making a definitive choice to
realize who I am and what I need to complete my life." TIMATAYO
