Tim Stokes is a coastal folk and blues singer / songwriter based in Byron Bay, a fertile region for Australian artists, on the North Coast of NSW, Australia.

A big-hearted man with a pocket full of songs, reminding us of who we are and what really matters. He is a combination of the swoon of Elvis’ ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love With You’ and the party starter vibe of ‘Dumb Things’ Paul Kelly. Tim Stokes is an artist able to open your heart, expand your mind and get your body grooving with songs that branch the bridges between ages, generations and walks of life. He shares songs sewn with hope, love and light, reminding us the “cracks are there for the light to shine in.”

Stokes live is an experience entered into. A smooth, honest, comforting voice complimented with his trusty 'Maton' acoustic guitar. Delivering songs that oscillate from upbeat celebrations to deep oceanic ballads. These songs can be poetic images from Tim’s own journey, some songs are journeys in themselves and some of it is just plain fun. 

Tim Stokes has played the stages of Splendour in the Grass, Bello Winter Music Festival, and Mullumbimby Music Festival along with many live music venues nationally and internationally.

Backyard Concert at Merrilees'

 —  —

Merrilees' Backyard, Highfields, Newcastle NSW 2289

On Sunday afternoon the 25th August, I will be sharing music in a house concert in the backyard at Merrilees' home in Highfields Newcastle.

I’ve been planning / wanting to arrange and perform more house concerts. Fortune recently brought Merrilee into my path at a gig at the Sphinx Rock Cafe Mt Burrell, Northern Rivers NSW.

After purchasing both my CD’s Merrilee asked me where else I play. I told her I was hoping to do a house concert around the Newcastle area but needed a venue. Merrilee graciously offered me her backyard and I am very appreciative and humbled by her support and hospitality.

To maintain an intimate atmosphere and the privacy of the host, the venue location will be provided up on ticket purchase. Due to the backyard size tickets are limited.

Bring along a rug and cushions and get cozy listening to my songs and songs which have inspired me. Artists like; Paul Kelly, Jack Johnson, Bob Marley and many more.

Some BBQ food will be available, but feel free to eat prior to coming or bring something along for yourself to enjoy with the tunes.

BYO drinks.

Arrive from 1pm

Music starts at 2pm and finish around 430pm.

Tickets : $20

Kids free and welcome.

In the event of wet weather alternate venue will be arranged. Let’s hope for a beautiful sunny Sunday in New Castle.

See you there!
