Tim SukitsAcoustic, Blues, Folk, Funk, Indie, Reggae, Rock
After earning his degree, he traveled to Australia where he expanded his knowledge of genres and his love for improvisational jams. As he improved his slide and stomp skills among the blues and roots players of Queensland and New South Wales, he worked to hone his songwriting craft, focusing lyrical content on the wonder and beauty of the world and its people.
Salem returned to the States and continued to build his touring chops around the Midwest before eventually making his way down to the Suncoast of Florida. He discovered a vast spring of inspiration and peace of mind along the crystal white sand beaches of Siesta Key, and decided to stick around for a while.
He can now be found playing at beach bars and roadhouses all over the Sunshine State, filling up dance floors with his signature brand of funky blues and roots, or captivating crowds with poignant folk-inspired story songs. He'll be around until life leads him toward the next leg of his musical journey - bus tour, boat tour, world tour - only time will tell.
Tim Salem is available to play original or cover music at any establishment, private gathering or public event. He supplies all of his own equipment and can accommodate any size venue. He incorporates ukulele, stomp box, harmonica and assorted percussion into his set upon request. Rates are determined on a case by case basis depending on various factors.
Samples of his original music can be heard at Myspace.com/TimSalem
