ABOUT

WHO IS TIM STILES?

Tim Stiles is an independent hip-hop artist from Seattle, WA–historically known as the lead vocalist/rapper of satirical hip hop band, Passion Party. While writing outlandishly hilarious stabs at the eccentricities of society, nerd culture, and relationships is prevalent in his contributions to the band, Tim is no one trick pony. He’s a clever wordsmith in his own right unafraid to branch out into more conscious directions while maintaining an engaging stage presence. Tim’s solo efforts and collaborations with other artists have resulted in a topically diverse catalog ranging from celebratory and grateful to provocative and personal. Regardless of the theme, the end result is a song that’s unique, relatable and accessible. There’s a beauty in Tim Stiles’ consistent track record of inconsistency. Thanks for visiting!

WHAT IS PASSION PARTY?

Formed in 2012 by frontman Tim Stiles and producer Adam Drew, Passion Party defines the genre of ‘satirical hip-hop.’ With the utmost cleverness and tact, they tackle themes encompassing self-deprecation, love, real-life, fantasy, nerd culture, and first world problems – topics traditional hip-hop acts wouldn’t dare touch. Combining early 90’s synth with sultry horns, deliberately placed samples, traditional hip-hop percussion, and hilarious content, the group never ceases to ensue laughter and entertain. Engaging live performances, crowd banter, costumes, and visuals create an experience that caters to all walks of life.
