The Motor City is a perfect place for an aspiring musician to cultivate a sound different from any other. From his early days playing the guitar in church to formal training as a young adult, Tim Bowman pulled from a multitude of influences and created a sound that infuses gospel, blues, R&B and jazz. After spending 6 years as the musical director for renowned gospel group, The Winans, Tim took a break from the road and eventually decided to embark on a solo career.
Since Bowman hit the jazz scene in 1996, he has been winning rave reviews and garnering ubiquitous smooth jazz radio airplay. After Bowman printed up 2,000 copies, himself, and began promoting his first album around his hometown of Detroit, the city’s jazz radio station, WJZZ, started playing four tracks concurrently (Give Me You, ‘Love, Joy, Peace’, I’ll Be There, and Speak To Me) in heavy rotation. One thousand CDs on consignment at Detroit record stores were sold in five weeks.
