                Band Bio               

From the land of the Georgia Pines comes Tim Brooks and the Alien Sharecroppers' 
band that brings to the world a blues-infused flashback of classic rock and roll iced 
with new twists and turns that will help take this idiom to the new millennium. 
Their performances consist of a diverse collection of original songs with a sprinkling 
of obscure cover tunes that run the gamut from hip-shakin’ soul to pure guts rock 
and roll touching on everything in between with their trademark funky style. 
Tim Brooks is the man behind the scorching ax. Tim creates a plainspoken but 
cutting edge sound without sacrificing the country-tinged music of his roots. The 
Sharecroppers may be the “new kids” in town, but they have been around the 
block--musically speaking. Their musical philosophy through the years has led to 
them blowing away average, status-quo contenders and developing themselves as a 
low down, funked--out unit that shuns comparisons. 


Tim Brooks’ guitar prowess has earned him the recognition of hopeful young 
guitarists and seasoned veterans. He received international exposure when he took 
the grand prize in Guitar Player Magazines 25th Anniversary Ultimate Guitar 
Competition for his home studio version of “Made From Scratch”, a blazing two 
plus minutes of other worldly slide guitar. This honor allowed him to share the stage 
at the Warfield Theater in ‘Frisco with some of the best guitar killers in the music 
biz today including Steve Morse, Jeff “Skunk” Baxter, Ry Cooder, Adrian Belew, 
John Lee Hooker, Gregg Allman and others. 


The Alien Sharecroppers have built a wide following across the USA and Europe, 
with each of them gathering status individually before teaming up with Tim earlier 
this year. The Sharecroppers are Kenny Walters, bass and vocals, Jonathan Randall, 
lead singer and acoustic guitar, Paul Thomas, keys, and Anthony J. Walker, drums 
and vocals--all experienced, dynamic musicians in their own right. 


Tim, who has played with Muddy Waters, Gatemouth Brown, Dickey Betts, 
Tinsley Ellis, The Dregs, and a host of other name acts, is creating rock and roll for 
the new century--come along for the ride “WHERE LOW DOWN MEETS FAR 
OUT!!!”
