About the Author

It was the life changing experience seeing Muddy Waters at 14 years old that would inspire Tim Gartland's musical journey into one that would be guided by the blues. Not only did the Ohio native, now long­time Boston resident, fall in love with the blues that night, he vowed his undying devotion to the music, thus, turning him into the 'triple threat' (harmonica player, vocalist & songwriter) contemporary blues man that he is today.

As Tim gained a more in­depth knowledge of blues songwriting, he came to understand that if blues music was going to stay relevant in today's world, the songs had to tackle the problems of society today. Tim Gartland gives proof that with a "gritty Hendrix­like voice...The blues seldom sound so sweet" (Boston Herald) on 'Million Stars,' his self­penned new album out September 9, 2014.

In 2011 Tim became a published author after writing instructional book for the harmonica entitled, "The Talking Harmonica", and in turn launched a teaching career. His passion for teaching, playing and preserving the harmonica led him to become the first harmonica teacher at the prestigious Winchester Community School.
