“Mr. Sullivan’s good-natured folksiness set the stage . . . a guitar-strumming Oklahoma cowboy gave this Lincoln Center convocation a reviving shot of adrenaline.”

Tim Sullivan

Award-Winning singer/songwriter Tim Sullivan began performing concerts across Oklahoma and surrounding states with his seven talented brothers and sisters at the age of six. As a teenager, he formed his first country band, which was named one of the 10 best bands in America in a national “Battle- of-the-bands” star search competition. After graduating from Oklahoma University where he attended on a baseball scholarship, Tim moved to Los Angeles to pursue his singing career.

Since those early years, he has appeared on stage with such country stars as Alan Jackson, Willie Nelson, Vince Gill, Glen Campbell and Tammy Wynette. Tim has also been a guest artist with the LA Philharmonic Orchestra and featured performer on NBC’s Today Show. He has appeared at venues throughout the United States and abroad including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center’s Rose Hall, Broadway’s Town Hall, Will Rogers Coliseum in Fort Worth, and the World Equestrian Center in Sydney, Australia.

Tim won Songwriter of the Year Award in Massachusetts for his song “Dance in the Rain” and wrote the theme song for the 2003 Boston Red Sox “Cowboy Up”. Tim also co-wrote and starred in a one-man musical called “Diary of a Songwriter” that he has performed across the country and off Broadway to rave revues.

Tim lives in Durango, Colorado with his stunningly beautiful and talented sixteen year old daughter, Heather Kathleen. At more than 175 live shows from coast to coast each year, Tim sings a compelling combination of his own songs and some old and new favorites that audiences love. His accomplished guitar work is a good match to his soaring tenor voice, and he tells a good story that keeps audiences involved and always wanting more.
