""The Last Days Of Dark""

Timothy's latest album, The Last Days Of Dark, is a testament to his journey, which he’s managed to focus on a collection of music that epitomizes healing — and the courage necessary to confront heartache head on. The first single, “The Future,” is content rich, aiming squarely at the ill of today’s society. - -Above Average Hip-Hop Magazine


During these troubled times in our country, expressing yourself is more important than ever. Like many artists, Timothy Dark is taking out his aggression in his music with his brand new single “Unpatriotic (feat. Stephanie Linn).” Starting with powerful piano chords and the intro to the Pledge of Allegiance, Dark spits bars with ferocity stemming from a long-repressed frustration with the system. - -Independent Artist Buzz

""Dark Day Afternoon""

Dark’s expansive artistry encompasses politically charged hip-hop, buttery R&B, grimy rock, street savvy poetry, literature, non-dogmatic spirituality, and singer-songwriter style emotional intimacy. Previously described as “Michael Jackson’s band meets Inspectah Deck of WuTang meets the energy from Queens that made the Ramona’s play fast” - -Graffiti Vibe

""She Put a Spell on Me""

Some of the coolest music out there comes as a result of blending not only genres, but also by combining the best on offer from different periods of music. Today The Big Takeover has the pleasure of introducing you to the latest musical output from Timothy Dark – namely his single “She Put a Spell on Me.” His new single brings him firmly into funk-dance territory, with an ’80s old-school sound resonant to that of The Time, Rockwell, Prince, and even Earth Wind and Fire. This is full of Purple Rain -era groove and, while not straight rap, Dark’s voice has that endearing believable storyteller quality that led 1980s youth to be immediately attracted to DJ Jazzy Jeff and The French Prince. - The Big Take Over


Still working on that hot first release.



Timothy was born in Harlem, but raised in and East Elmhurst, Queens and the South Bronx before the streets were sanitized.
He was a man learning how to survive amidst the violence and corruption of hard times New York. One of his most formative moments was his mother boldly placing him onstage during a  James Brown concert and the Godfather Of Soul shaking his hand. It has become a symbolic gesture on many levels.  It showed his mother’s encouragement and total support for Timothy becoming a musician, or whatever he might hope to achieve in life. He also felt like in that handshake James Brown transferred an electricity that courses through Timothy to this day.  

The emergence of hip-hop as an art form became a way to observe and experience and street life and turn it into something special. At a very early age he began to express himself through spitting his own rhymes over the popular beats of the day. He cultivated his burgeoning talents with various crews before going solo. On his artistic path he has experienced a variety of highlights both as a solo artist, and as a member of rap crews. He’s opened for Nas, Black Rob, and immersed himself in New York City’s thriving Antifolk scene where he collaborated with such talents as Nellie Mckay and Nicole Atkins.

As a solo artist, his work has been shaped by a poetic catharsis from pain.” You can’t appreciate light without darkness,” he says. “A lot of what I do is connected to death. Death and violence were a part of where I grew up. As a kid, we were always attending funerals and wakes at least once or twice a month. My music is about acknowledging this, working through it, and giving people a release from the madness. By sharing rage and vulnerability, I’m showing people I’m someone they can turn to. “
