Tim McInnes

My Life Story
by Tim McInnes

     This will have to be an autobiography, as Wikipedia hasn't picked me up, yet.  I am Timothy Rex McInnes, born December 12,1952, in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, the little city across the Detroit River from Detroit, Michigan.

Rum running capital of the world, Windsor was, but that was before my time.  My family moved to London, Ontario in 1963, just before JFK was killed. I don't think there's any connection.

  I grew up, went to school in London, Ontario, moved to Hamilton, Ontario in 1974 to work for the S.S. Kresge Company to get enough money for my last year of university at McMaster University in Hamilton.  Graduated there with an Honours Degree in Philosophy (how practical!), saw Europe in 1976 and came back to London, Ontario to get a job.  I found that my degree with completely useless and actually a handicap to employment, so I took a series of low-paying jobs so that I didn't starve.

  I got married in 1981 to  Cornelia.  She is the mother of my three children, Mark, Matthew, and Angela. I worked my way through the lousy jobs until I got a job with Cuddy Foods in 1987 as a forklift driver.  I worked there until 2015 when I retired.  Cornelia and I divorced in 1993.  I married Lynda in 2007, and we are still together.

Pretty dull life, eh?  I thought so too, so after I retired in 2015, I began to fill my time with writing songs and playing keyboard and guitar.  Figure it out.  I actually began to do what I wanted to do at the age of 62.  My gigs have been limited to volunteer "concerts" that I have put on for Alzheimer's patients as part of their music therapy.  I did that for about a year.  It was a win-win for all concerned.

   Turns out, there was a music recordist/ producer one block away from me, named Tim Schwindt, who owns River Music Studios.  It's a small studio, but it suited me perfectly.  I've recorded two full albums there, "Selfie" in 2017 and "Shadowlife" in 2018.  They have been heard all over the world on Spotify, Youtube. Jango Radio, Apple Music and may other venues.

   All this is very gratifying to me, and I hope to continue making music at least until I'm dead, and maybe a little longer to make up for a largely dull and wasted life.
