Byron Bay’s Tim Stokes is a songwriter who embodies a stripped-back rootsy lifestyle. His laidback nature is deceptive; make no mistake Tim Stokes is a man on a mission to take his music all over the world.

Tim Stokes’s music – like the man himself – is honest and unpretentious, with Jack Johnson-esque relaxed melodies together with the lyrical urgency of Paul Kelly and John Butler. Tim effortlessly mixes blues, roots, rock-country and folk into his own distinctive sound. His songs are earthy, insightful lessons, tales and reflections drawn from the highs and lows of his colourful journey.

MeXico is Tim Stokes’s debut album, which was released in August 2011. MeXico is an uplifting album that leaves you with the feel of summer, sun and surf. It captures the positive, hopeful bounce-along vibe and groove of Tim Stokes’s nature.

Radio airplay of the album on Triple J, ABC and many independent stations is resulting in a rapidly growing fan base across the country.

Tim Stokes’s live-performances flow from upbeat acoustic rock to slow-burning ballads and back again. Whether he performs solo, or with full band, it is hard to sit still when he turns up the energy.

So, armed with trusty guitar, a case of his CD MeXico and wind behind his back, Tim Stokes is heading to the Sphinx Rock Cafe on Sunday.
