ABOUT TIMOTHY J.P. GOMEZ

Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything. ”

— Plato

          Award winning musician Timothy J.P. Gomez is a composer and performer of the Native American Style Flute. Timothy integrates world music with the depth and emotional impact of the Romantic Era to reflect his awe of nature and aptitude for immense empathy. Human connection and kinship with the Earth are reoccurring themes in his music, and his heartfelt melodies capture the imagination and transport the listener to another world. Timothy’s technical abilities impart a fluidity and intricacy to his music, and spur his creativity to produce a playing style recognizable as distinctly his own. 

          Timothy grew up in the desert landscape on the outskirts of El Paso, TX, where he fell in love with the Native Flute and the dreamlike terrain beyond his door. After playing privately for friends and family for many years, Timothy was finally convinced to share his gift with the world. Timothy began his introduction to the Native American Flute scene at the 2012 Native Rhythms Festival in Melbourne, FL, where he placed 1st in the Flute Players Competition. In 2014, Timothy released his debut album, The Awakening, an acoustic Native Style Flute album focused on his wanderings through nature and self reflection on life’s trials and triumphs. His album received 2 nominations at the Indian Summer Music Awards, with his song “Sacred Saguaro” securing the 2015 win in its category.
 

          Currently, Timothy performs at festivals and concerts throughout the USA. He also holds workshops and offers private lessons during events, where he has been privileged to assist many flute players on their musical pursuits. Timothy is working on his follow up album which is slated for a spring 2018 release, and continues his mission to inspire conservation and a love of adventure through his musical compositions. Timothy currently resides in Northern California, where he spends his free time exploring the local redwood reserves, mountain vistas, and rugged coastal parks.
