2x Grammy-award winning recording artist and songwriter Timothy Bloom premieres his new video here on SFPL for the fan favorite song “For Love.” The video touches on the challenges of being a musician who is in a romantic relationship. Although, based on Timothy’s experience, the video depicts the struggle and choices that anyone with a demanding career and a family faces. The song has been a favorite at shows for the last few years and at the behest of his fans, Timothy has created a compelling visual for the song.
When asked why he was releasing the video for a song off an older project Timothy responded:
“With the state of the world today, we all need to focus on love. I end all my shows with this song because I want everyone to leave feeling love. This video is needed to remind people that love is what’s important.”
Bloom recently released disc one, The Beginning of the upcoming trilogy series, The Life Trilogy. Disc two will be released later this Summer. Timothy’s refreshing voice and sound reflect the multiple influences of his musical heroes and his varied upbringing. He attributes his unique blend to the styles he heard growing up. Rock, Folk, Gospel, R&B—all these elements and more add to his unique, signature style.
Timothy received praise from a few of the music industry’s elite:
“I feel about Timothy the same way I felt when I first met TuPac as far as artistic talent, hunger and quest. He has a real skillful driven soul ”– Chuck D
“This guy was born to communicate. His delivery is effortless, the songwriting and production are top-notch. But it’s Timothy’s voice and the way he emotes through his melodies and lyrics that really stays with you, long after the song has faded. He’s the real deal.” -Dave Koz
“Timothy is very talented, sincere, and passionate about good, relevant music. His music has all those elements. That’s a hard combination to beat.” – Herbie Hancock
