Tim Brey is a young in-demand jazz pianist living in Philadelphia, and a recent
graduate of Temple University with a Bachelor’s of Music in Jazz Studies. He has had
the privilege of performing in small groups led by Norman David, Dick Oatts, Noah
Preminger, Joanna Pascale, Terell Stafford, and John Swana.
At just 24 years old, Brey has performed internationally at the “Keep an Eye on Jazz”
competition at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam (2012), and with saxophonist
Raymond McMorrin in Urayasu and Fukishima, Japan (2013).
Brey’s extensive knowledge of the Great American Songbook and his commitment to
keeping jazz fresh and relevant in an evolving, modern musical climate have made
him a premier jazz solo pianist, leader, and sideman in Philadelphia and beyond.
Every Sunday he can be found running the “Midtown Jazz Jam with Tim Brey Trio” at
Time Restaurant and Whiskey Bar in downtown Philadelphia
