#Musicmoney meets Tim, Just A Jester to hear about his new track, Slow Dance

Where are you from?

I'm from Kingston, London, UK. 

Describe your sound:

My sound varies depending on the song I'm writing. Each requires something different depending on its theme and tempo etc. However, all songs have either electric or acoustic guitar in common. 

Tell us about your latest track:

My latest track, "Slow Dance" is an acoustic song, it was written 31 years ago. I'd almost forgotten about it until an admirer told me they wanted to hear it again. It was actually one of quite a few that Island and Ensign records wanted to sign me up for years ago. Unluckily for me the management company who represented me at the time turned the deals down because the offers weren't enough to cancel an outstanding debt they had. I didn't find this out until 2 years after the deals were offered. "Slow Dance" is a song about my reflections of early discos where men lining the walls of the venue would eye up their potential partners on the dance floor. The slow dance was the perfect opportunity for the guys to make moves on girls they fancied and be intimate with them in the dance.

Who inspires you?

My inspirations come from anything that captures my imagination; the story of a remarkable life of someone, an emotion, a tv documentary, a broken heart, new found love or just a reflection of the state of the world around me.

Where do you see your career in 5 years?

I'd like to be a full time professional musician playing and recording like I used to years ago. I will make this my aim over the next 5 years.

Where can we check out your sounds?

You can check out my sounds on just about any platform, all songs are distributed by ditto on Spotify, Apple and Soundcloud etc. They have all had radio plays around the world, I've had over 10 top 10 hits in various international chart shows.

Tell us something about yourself that people need to know...

Over the years, in various outfits, I have supported Van Morrison at the Ivor Novello awards, played live my song "Railway Stations" to 9 million viewers on BBC 1 TV, played Glastonbury on different stages 8 times, toured England and Italy with bands including Sonja Kristina of Curved Air, (Stewart Copeland's ex-wife) recording countless albums. Recorded at Peter Gabriel's Real World studio with some of his band members.
