BIOGRAPHY

LEDFOOT aka Tim Scott McConnell is an American Singer-Songwriter and 12-string guitarist. He has been touring and releasing music since the late 1970’s as a solo artist and as a member of ‘The Rockats’ in the early 1980’s and ‘The Havalinas’ in the early 1990’s, at which time Bob Dylan personally asked Tim if the band would open for him on the ’Oh Mercy’ tour of France and England. As a songwriter, Tim has written for artists as varied as ‘Highasakite’, ‘TnT’ to 'Sheena Easton'. In 2014, Bruce Springsteen released his album ‘High Hopes’, the title tracked having been written by Tim. It debuted as #1 in over 10 countries including the U.S. and the U.K..

      

LEDFOOT came into existence in 2006, when Tim put together the different techniques from over 30 years of playing and combined a 12-string guitar with steel fingerpicks, a brass slide, open-tunings, very heavy strings and a stomp box. Mixing this with a dark lyrical and melodic sense, he dubbed it ‘Gothic Blues’. Since than Ledfoot has released 4 albums and has toured England, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, Holland and the U.S.

 

In the summer of 2018 Tim filmed the first season of a new tv series for Norway’s version of ‘BBC1’ ‘NRK1’, appearing in 6 of the 8 episodes in season 1. The series is due for release in October 2019.

   

LEDFOOT will be releasing his new single "Right Down the Hole" 21st June 2019, following tours in the  UK, Germany, Sweden, and Spain.
