Who's The Boss? Cover


04.20.2022: Available now both digitally and as a Limited Edition 2x Vinyl, Cicada Exoskeletons is an album 3+ years in the making, reflecting on both positive and negative aspects of what we know as life. Its songs celebrate and expose Tim's position from point A to point Z and everywhere in between in a manner both genuine and relatable.

A LIMITED EDITION 2 x VINYL LP version (limited to 300 copies, double 180gm color vinyl w/ full color gatefold) is available via my Bandcamp Page. Consisting of 15 brand new songs, the album features some of my long-time influences including Sole (Anticon), The Grouch (Living Legends), Kristoff Krane, Murcii Miller, and Bodi (Elephant Memories) as well as production from Mack Formway (Art Vandelay), Captain Midnite, and Qreepz. You can watch the official video for the debut song, Jar Of Fireflies  via my YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram pages (produced by J. Lee Vertz of AudioDose).

The entire album is also on all digital streaming platforms!

11.05.2021: The official music video for Jar Of Fireflies was shot in hi-res 4k at various locations, parks, and strips around West Seattle, WA including The Corner Pocket Billiards & Lounge and Tim's home. While we may not stay young forever, we should never stop collecting the memories which encompass our lives on this earth. Video produced and edited by J. Lee Mezus. I hope you enjoy it!

"If you are a fan of Sage Francis or Brother Ali, you’ll love Tim Stiles. He’s smart and silly, in all of the best possible ways."

Tim Stiles is feeling thankful.
Dear Denise,

I'm pretty sure I've owed you this poem since the brink of 1990
Just after you and Dad met at our church by the beach
You married a widower? Combined with two un-winded teens?
I'm forever thankful that you decided to sign that lease

Jordan and I didn't make it an easy one for you, we often whined and screamed
Still trying to find our peace after our mom's untimely decease
But you were adamant with us, often unkind beasts
You've since been the catalyst, an advocate for our needs

Our hearts were difficult to solidify, I agree
But yours remains an open one, despite that grind to reach
Your cooking? Always the finest feast
Plus you were the best mother to Duke as you walked him behind his leash

30 years later, it's about time I preached
You put the 'saint' in St. Angelo like the Carmelites priest
Your kindness and love shines through the trees
You're the halo over our family, who's made Stiles unique

So, let me outline in speech that you've changed *my" life at least
My success is mostly due to you, so thank *you* for what I've achieved
Today just like every other one, I hope you're treated like a queen
Wishing you the best Mother's Day, your highness, Denise
I love you

"It's not like being called, 'Boss' is innately debilitating / It simply comes across as vaguely humiliating" 🤣
