Tim Kennedy is one of the shining stars of the current Northwest music scene. You’ll find him playing classic rock in the groups Hot Rod and Big Tooth, electric keys in the modern jazz trio Gravity, doing solo gigs as pianist, guitarist and/or singer, and often embracing electronic dance music as his alter ego Richie Aldente.
Kennedy considers himself a songwriter first, and finds more opportunities by playing as much music with as many players as he can. The result is a player and composer who thinks more about each song than about any preconceived ideas of what jazz should be.
The past few years Tim has found himself producing albums for a large variety of artists. When not doing music, Tim enjoys spending time with his family and working in his garden.
