tl_files/bilder/titelbilder/Portrait_Timo_web_gerhard_richter.jpg

Timo Böcking began to develop his interest in music as a young child. After a period of autodidactic playing, he began to receive classical piano training from the age of eight. Later on, he studied with Markus Sahm and Armin Müller, with whom he was able to improve his improvisational skills and expand his musical horizon. In the following years, he was able to gather a lot of experience as a live and studio keyboard/piano player, composer, and arranger. 

He has worked with all sorts of artists from different genres; e.g. as a Hammond player for Helmut Jost, who was also a strong influence in Timo's musical development. His numerous activities in the Christian music scene are not by chance, but in fact motivated by his strong faith and belief in God. 

In his own musical projects, he is able to pursue his passion for instrumental music and compose for all sorts of different line-ups, yet his roots in Funk & Soul always shine through. You can read more about his new gospel project "Gospel with Passion" on their website www.gospelwithpassion. Audiences are delighted by the mix of expressive ballads and earthy, powerful grooves, as well as his authentic stage presence. He feels just as much at home on the acoustic piano as he does on the electric piano, synthesizer and organ. As of now, he is studying music at the Musikhochschule in Cologne.
