Less Traveled debuted their album Nobody in 2000 and Timbers quickly gained notoriety as the bands lead songwriter. The album led to regional touring and he became a full time musician. Timbers shared the stage with Jake Phillips (lead guitar and vocals) and veteran players like drummer Bruce Guttridge (Carl Filipiak) and bassist Gary Grainger (John Scofield). Timbers’ songwriting also awarded him an endorsement with Godin Guitars and a chance to open for Agents Of Good Roots, Merles Saunders and Tim Reynolds (Dave Matthews and TR3)
After the bands dismantling, Timbers moved to NYC where he began his career as a solo artist. A frequent performer and friend to many in the Brooklyn music scene, Chris sat in as a session guitarist on several hip-hop record projects and continued to fashion his original style and technique as a singer/songwriter.
