In 2015, Tim recorded his debut album on a chocolate farm in the eastern jungle of Kauai. His debut release was received with critical acclaim and was nominated for two Na Hoku Hanohano awards in 2016. His debut music video "Be Myself" won Best Music Video at the Yosemite Film Festival, and his follow up music video for "Sirens" was nominated for Best Music Video at the 2017 Na Hoku Hanohano awards. He was chosen to perform at the 2017 NAMM Show in Anaheim, California. This is striking considering this is only his first project.
