“Just a Jester” is Timothy Daniel Whitaker’s stadium name, a solo artist residing in London, U.K. Timothy is a songwriter, singer, and guitarist that creates Alternative/Rock music. He was a host of some of London’s earliest open mic nights, namely, “Acoustic Revolution”. He was also a songwriter for Ty-Lor, a duo with brother Simon Whitaker, who featured on BBC 1’s program, “What’s That Noise,” a live composition written by Tim to over 8 million viewers. Ty-Lor supported Van Morrison at the Ivor Novello song awards and Roy Harper at the Town and Country club folk festival twice. They played Glastonbury acoustic festival seven times and featured in Sonja Kristina’s band, and recorded her albums.
The two brothers, Tim and Simon, later reformed as “The Whitaker Brothers” and played in festivals and pub gigs for over 10 years together. “The Whitaker Brothers” concluded, and album named “Animated”. One song of that album called “Good Love,” written by Tim, was played on radio stations worldwide, including Planet Rock, where it featured for four months, four times a day. “Good Love” is still played on that station to date.
Tim has recorded at Peter Gabriel’s studio “Real World,” where some of Peter’s band asked to assist with bass, sax, and drums. He has been offered three major deals in the past, which only failed due to inexperienced management.
Timothy has released more than 20 singles so far, and all of them have been played on radio stations worldwide, 7 of which have reached the top 10 in various independent chart shows.
