About Tim Garland

In his early-teens, Tim Garland was profoundly influenced by a chance encounter with saxophonist Tony Coe. During his studies at the Guildhall School of Music, he was encouraged to learn to play an instrument to professional standards in order to better develop his abilities as a composer; Garland chose tenor saxophone. In 1990, he formed the folk-jazz group Lammas with guitarist/composer Don Paterson, who would eventually record five albums. In the late-90s, Garland joined Chick Corea’s Origin and released the album Made by Walking on Corea’s Stretch label. Somehow, between all these projects, he found the time to join Bill Bruford’s Earthworks as both composer and performer, work in a John Dankworth big band, and take up the mantle of composer-in-residence at Newcastle University.
