Tim Smith: Drums

Drummer, Tim Smith combines a keen feel for groove and influences from a broad selection of music genres to anchor The Aaron Clift Experiment’s sound.

At age 11, Tim began his music career when he took up trombone in his school band.  But all the while, his true dream was to learn drums and percussion.  That dream came true when, at age 13, Tim bought his first drum set.  Since then, he’s been drumming in numerous bands – playing everything from rock, funk, R&B, and heavy metal.  Today, Tim is pursuing a music minor at the University of Texas at Austin.

Tim hopes that with his nuanced feel and diverse musicianship, he can make the music groove and extract a rhythmic reaction from the listener – whether that’s dancing, tapping their foot, or nodding their head in time.
