The Police Academy

Tim Haycocks as Andy Summers

In 1994 Tim picked up his first guitar. 3 years later as he walked off-stage after his first gig, he knew that music was something that would always play a huge part in his life, dictating its very direction in many cases. One such occasion was in influencing his decision to study it for a further 3 years which subsequently led him to choose it as a full time profession, gigging, teaching and recording. A prolific song-writer and veteran performer, he is able to recreate a huge repertoire of sounds and styles and has worked all over the UK with artists as diverse as The James Taylor Quarter to Skunk Anansie. The last 14 years have seen him work in many different capacities with function bands, new artists and established musicians alike. Be it as a singer, guitar-playing front man, solo artist, guitarist, session musician or backing vocalist he's just as comfortable in any role but he's most at home when he's on stage.
