SONGWRITING TEAM TIMBO & SWEET SUZI RELEASE TEASER VIDEO FOR EPIC “GRANDFATHER” VISUAL

 By MISS@BEE, SOURCE MAGAZINE


Music is an outburst of the soul. Music is what “feelings” sound like. Music has the ability to convey that which cannot be expressed. Rising songwriter/Hip-Hop artist Timothy Scott AKA TIMBO creates musical murals with his songs. He has a mature soul with a contemporary attitude. His lyrical themes create genuine, multifaceted compositions that take the listener on a reflective journey. Timbo is emerging onto the music world’s radar as a genuinely refreshing rapper/songwriter. He creates music that inspires others to follow their dreams. Timbo’s influences include music legends Billy Joel, Ozzy Osborne, Tupac, and Eminem.


Eclectic, mesmerizing, and dynamic are the adjectives being used to describe the Long Island, NY based emcee TIMBO. At times brilliant and at times daring, Timbo is relentlessly engaging. Equal important, he has formed a singer/songwriter partnership with an explosive female vocalist by the name of Sweet Suzi. Sweet Suzi is a Blues Hall Of Fame inductee. Together they write and compose songs that capture the essence of the human spirit. They spin stories of love, lessons learned, conflict and resolution. Their music consists of lush melodies and deep, introspective, powerful Hip Hop/Pop anthems.


Timbo’s movement is called “Love Over Dollars.” His unique selling proposition is that he is not afraid to be himself and he incorporates many of his life’s experiences into his music. Timbo is intriguing in his ability to connect with the listener. Armed with a pen, a microphone and an unshakable will to succeed, TIMBO and his singer/songwriter partner, Sweet Suzi, are already making an impact on the independent music scene and beyond. Their incredible new single, “Grandfather,” is a solid effort that fully exhibits their passion and dedication to their craft.


“Grandfather” is a deep, intriguing song that tugs at the heart. The lyrics are poignant and soul piercing. Timbo wrote “Grandfather” as a tribute to his deceased Grandfather. It is reminiscent of Tupac’s “Dear Mama”, but for fathers. The song features Sweet Suzi on the chorus.  The songstress approaches every note with fearless class. Her voice is pure and authentic. Sweet Suzi’s sultry yet powerful voice resurrects the spirits of such icons as Janice Joplin, and Amy Winehouse. She effortlessly shifts her voice and delivery into the beat so that it acts as an additional instrument within the track.


Moreover, Timbo and Sweet Suzi do everything in a major way.  The rapper and singer are set to unveil an epic music video for the “Grandfather” single. The visual is like a motion picture. The video was filmed by videographer Tom Flynn. It is bold and colorful. The editing is sleek and the cinematography is alluring and powerful with some scenes taking place in a church. Timbo and Sweet Suzi will debut the music video as on January 6th 2020.  But in the meantime they have released a teaser video to build anticipation for the official debut.  


Their creativity, stage presence and confidence set them apart from the competition. Both Timbo and Sweet Suzi are on a mission to become “diamonds” in a music world filled with “cubic zirconia.” Respect the grind and join the movement.
