About Tim Sars:

A natural musician in every respect. With both his parents professional musicians, it was probably inevitable that Tim would follow in their footsteps, and as a teenager he quickly developed a distictive voice on the baritone sax. 

Tim's fluent and deeply melodic style draws on a spectrum of inspirations-from Afrobeat, New Orleans, Ellingtonian jazz, Balkan Brass, Funk, and Latin jazz. He also plays piano, flute, and sings - and in his recent self produce albums you can hear his skill as a composer and arranger of various styles of jazz, pop, and funk. 

Many of the musical compositions on his albums have a deep hold in the Vancouver music scene, being played in various bands in town. One of Tim's ambitions is to create a musical community, influencing other songwriters and bands with a new musical language, unique to his cities deep roots.
