Timothy Bloom

Get to Know R&B Newcomer Timothy Bloom

Timothy Bloom opened viewers’ eyes to his music (and much more) in the revealing video for “‘Til the End of Time,” his duet with vocalist V. Bozeman. Now the singer/songwriter/producer, who was born in Texas and moved from city to city during his childhood (“I consider myself to be a gypsy”), formally introduces himself.

The son of pastors, Bloom has written songs for Chris Brown (“All Back”), Smokey Robinson (“My World,” “Fallen in Love”), and Ne-Yo (“Say It”), and plays the guitar, piano, drums, bass, and a number of other instruments. He counts Cat Stevens, Jimi Hendrix, and Marvin Gaye among his influences.

After his father turned down a deal with Universal Motown when he was 15 due to religious reasons, super-producers Timbaland and Polow Da Don came calling. Bloom is currently prepping his debut on Mosley Music Group/Zone 4/Interscope, and his EP The Budding Rose is now available on iTunes.

“It’s not urban, it’s not rock, it’s not pop. It’s just great music,” said his mentor Timbaland. “Timothy Bloom is the next biggest thing.”
