Singer/Songwriter Tim Di Pasqua was born and raised in San Francisco, California and began his songwriting career in the late 70's. Being influenced by the "California" sound of Folk pop from artists such as JD Souther, Karla Bonoff. Joni Mitchell and James Taylor, Tim constructed songs full of beautiful harmonies and heartfelt lyrics. As Tim grew as both songwriter and musician, his inspiration came from such varied artists as Leon Russell, Todd Rundgren, U2, Prince, Led Zeppelin, Steely Dan and Sting blending the classic rock song structure with soulful R & B chord phrasing giving birth to a hybrid of incredible sound and style. Now in 2005 Tim has been compared to Alannis Morisette, Pat metheny, Bruce Hornsby and as far from the pop world as you can get, Stephen Sondheim.
Tim spends his time hopping back and forth from San Francisco to New York where he spends his time writing music and recording in the studio, either for his own projects or for other's. The PURPOSE OF LOVE collection is a compilation of his music sung by some of the greatest voices from the pop world and the Broadway Stage, The album features the diversity in Tim's writing and is illustrated by the unique and varied performances he gets from his vocalists. The eclectic cd features standout performances from Broadway belters, jazz crooners, and Pop divas. Proving that if the song is good, it can stand up within any arrangement. And just to make that point more clear, one needs only to pick up Tim's debut solo cd "MONSTER UNDER THESE CONDITIONS " and you will be able to hear some of these same songs but performed in a completely different style and arrangement. Be it blues, jazz, rock, Pop, country, Broadway, Tim feels each pulsing away in his heart an in his veins, inevitably finding their way into an original song
As a singer, Tim is wild about getting in to the studio to arrange and record every new song that he creates. As an arranger and producer, nothing pleases him more than to surrender his song
Into the hands of a gifted vocalist to see what new twist they can bring to it.
Tim has created the music and lyrics for his original musical entitled "SYCHRONICITY"About the lives of five individuals who are thrown together and find out that they have more in common with each other than not, and that there are no accidents.
