Agents of Good Roots
Founded in 1993 in Richmond, Virginia, Agents of Good Roots toured the United States from 1995 through 2001. Since then, band members have found success in music performance, the recording industry, academia, and medicine. In October 2017, they reunited for a memorial show for their tour manager and spiritual advisor, Jeff Peskin. Several dates are planned for 2018 including a return to cities last played in the 1990s.
A Northern Virginia native, singer/songwriter Chris Timbers draws inspiration from soul music, contemporary jazz, blues, rock and country. A soulful, rootsy singer with earthy acoustic songwriting, Chris Timbers made his mark on the VA music scene with the band Less Traveled.
Less Traveled debuted their album Nobody in 2000 and Timbers quickly gained notoriety as the bands lead songwriter. The album led to regional touring and he became a full time musician. Timbers shared the stage with Jake Phillips (lead guitar and vocals) and veteran players like drummer Bruce Guttridge (Carl Filipiak) and bassist Gary Grainger (John Scofield). Timbers’ songwriting also awarded him an endorsement with Godin Guitars and a chance to open for Agents Of Good Roots, Merles Saunders and Tim Reynolds (Dave Matthews and TR3)
After the bands dismantling, Timbers moved to NYC where he began his career as a solo artist. A frequent performer and friend to many in the Brooklyn music scene, Chris sat in as a session guitarist on several hip-hop record projects and continued to fashion his original style and technique as a singer/songwriter.
Timbers, now back in his home state, is presently gearing up for his freshmen release as a solo artist. Expect to hear songs that tell tales of his life journeys and that weave emotions through guitar playing that hits you straight to your core.
