The self-proclaimed “Six String Hobo” and “Sidewalk Superstar,” Tim Knecht is a man on a mission to minister to the human race with the power of music, wherever they are at. From street corners and clubs, to churches and bars, Tim seeks out an audience wherever he can find one, trying to make the world a better place, one song at a time.

At the age of 15 his father gave him his first guitar and it has been an on-going obsession ever since. It has led him to hitch-hike through his home state of California, busking and sleeping on the streets, to traveling the United States in his van, seeing the nation and picking up songs along the way. He now does music full-time with the words of Townes Van Zandt as a guide to, “Get a guitar, and go.”
