Based: Cape Town
19-year-old Timothy De Monk from Cape Town found his passion for music three years ago after learning to play the guitar. Since then, he has been hard at work trying to make his dream a reality. Now, after releasing his debut EP ‘Hazy Days’ back in 2015, Timothy has signed to David Gresham Records and drops his brand new single ‘Everyday’ around the country today.
‘Everyday’ is the perfect pop banger. Produced by Ziggy, the man behind smash hits from Connell Cruise, Amor Vittone, Prime Circle and many more, the song is a beautiful guitar-driven track with a steady beat and some epic vocal chops – making it the perfect radio single. Timothy does a fantastic job with the vocal delivery in the song. His smooth vocals are comforting and the emotion is clear from the very first note. He has a voice that makes him stand out of the crowd and the direction he has taken with his music is fresh and exciting.
Although the lyrical content isn’t strong, the track has a catchy melody and is bound to make an impression on first listen. I think there is a gap in the market for an artist like Timothy and I’m excited to see how the single is received and what else he has up his sleeve. Timothy is also featured on Mark Stent’s ‘And So’, a fan-favourite off his new album ‘Solid’ and ‘Everyday’ drops on all major digital platforms today. Make sure you support local music by buying or streaming the song today.
