The Man Behind The Music
Tim O'Grady Jr was born and raised in a small town in Southern Wisconsin, from where he takes much of the inspiration for his songs. Tim grew up listening to a mixture of music including Blues, Rock and Roll, Americana, Country and Orchestral music. He taught himself to sing at a young age and joined choir in the sixth grade as one of five boys in a choir of thirty. Not long after, he discovered a love for writing and coupled that with buying his first guitar at age 13. He and two friends started a punk-rock band, while they were in high school called No Tricks. The three-piece band only performed a few shows for school functions and community events and eventually disbanded as their lives went in different directions. Tim continued to perform and write into his college days, but as life started to become busier (work, getting married and having a child) music took a backseat.
Music started to make a resurgence in Tim's life when he discovering the modern Outlaw Country movement in 2016. He got the chance to dive back into performing in June 2019 at a tavern in Beloit, WI. Since then, Tim has performed hundreds of shows throughout the Midwest. Those performances include opening for artists such as John Conlee, Josh Morningstar, Tony Logue and Craig Gerdes.
His debut album The Dollar Man is now available on all digital platforms. Physical copies can be purchased under the Merch and CDs tab.
