Meet Tim Soper: All music was composed, performed and recorded on digital pianos supplied by Mitchell's Piano Gallery of Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
Tim has been playing keyboard instruments for over 45 years. He was raised in the piano business in his hometown of Tupelo, Mississippi.
Tim moved to the Washington, DC metro area for a short time before moving to his present home in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He currently works for Mitchell's Piano Gallery as a piano sales specialist and piano technician. He also owns and operates Soper Piano Service in the Piedmont Triad of North Carolina.
Tim has always had a love for smooth jazz and has played keyboard instruments, basically for his own enjoyment. However, during his initial employment and sales orientation of the digital pianos offered by Mitchell's Piano Gallery, Tim discovered how easy it was to compose his music using the new technology available on digital pianos.
Tim has stated that he is composing more music that will be released at a later date.
I love jazz because it's sophisticated, international, atmospheric yet free, cool and warm.
I was first exposed to jazz through the sultry voice and flawless swing of my mother.
I met Mark Murphy, David Linx, Kurt Elling, and Youn Sun Nah.
The best show I ever attended was Youn Sun Nah in Paris.
The first jazz record I bought was Native Dancer by Wayne Shorter and Milton Nascimento
My advice to new listeners: open your mind and your ears, forget about structure, feel the textures.
Go see live music and keep buying CDs!
