asked Tim if the band would open for him on the 'Oh Mercy' tour of France and England. As a songwriter, Tim has written for artists as varied as 'Highasakite', 'TnT' to 'Sheena Easton'. In 2014, Bruce Springsteen released his album 'High Hopes', the title tracked having been written by Tim. It debuted as #1 in over 10 countries including the U.S. and the U.K..
LEDFOOT came into existence in 2006, when Tim put together the different techniques and tunings from over 30 years of playing and combined a 12-string guitar with steel fingerpicks, a brass slide, open-tunings , very heavy strings and a stomp box . Mixing this with a dark lyrical and melodic sense, he dubbed it 'Gothic Blues'. Since than Ledfoot has released 4 albums and has toured England, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, Holland and the U.S.
In the summer of 2018 Tim filmed the first season of a new tv series for Norways version of 'BBC1' 'NRK1'. He has been cast as a villain who exists in the mind of the main character, appearing in 6 of the 8 episodes in season 1. The series is due for release in October 2019.
