She was a featured big band vocalist at the Rainbow Room NYC for 5 years and a repeat soloist with the West Hartford Symphony Orchestra.
She has shared the stage with Chita Rivera, and opened for Styxx, Tanya Tucker, and The Eagles at corporate gala events. Timatha's energy and passion for delivering high quality entertainment with any of her shows, bands or vintage style acts is second to none and is the reason she created TKO Music Entertainment.

"I have heard nothing but rave reviews about what you did [your performance] at the breakfast the other morning. Everybody just thought you were wonderful and funny and sounded great and beautiful and just could not say enough great things about it! And I so appreciate your help. You were the thing that put it [our event] over the top and made it a success and I really appreciate it.
The clients LOVED your performance and it 'made' the whole breakfast. The sales people enjoyed working with you and said your professionalism was impeccable -- and your performance was 'out-of-this-world!' :) thanks so much for your enthusiasm and for doing such a great job. Can't wait to be able to work with you again!
Thanks so much"
"Timatha was a featured act at our annual convention and she 'wowed' our audience. Her standing ovation was well deserved! We will definitely bring her back! Timatha should go on American Idol. She could do any genre they give her and BLOW THEM OUT OF THE WATER!"
Kelly Comstock, NYC
Owner of B-Side Bar
"[Timatha has] a contemporary, sexy, sultry voice that transcends generations! She has a love and respect for the music... it is obvious. Thanks for letting us know why we should come out to see live music. This is 'real music' and we hear a lot of bands play."

"Timatha is a wonderful singer. She sounds so good!! Really good!"
John T. Prestianni, NY Composer/Arranger/Pianist, BMI
"Timatha is a consummate pro; the kind of vocalist every composer dreams about. She reads music on sight, has a natural sense of intonation, and one of the widest vocal ranges I've come across. She is also an adept vocal stylist; she can go from classical to pop to sultry jazz torch song at the drop of a hat. I've used her in the studio, on the stage and in clubs a number of times. She'd be ideal for any recording project, show or club date. She's a real delight!"
Jack Daney, FL
"Dynamic native Texas beauty, singer-bandleader-entertainer-dancer-impressionist Timatha (she does it all) and her great new band may well be just what's needed to liven up the dancing-listening crowd which longs for the way things were and should be. Good music never hurt anyone. Stay tuned!!"

We attended the fabulous Bob Hope Tribute show at the Charleston Music Hall Saturday evening, November 8th. It was a wonderful show and your performance was marvelous. Everyone enjoyed your energy, beautiful singing voice, and fantastic sense of humor. Your Marilyn Monroe and Carmen Miranda impersonations were magnificent. You are exceptionally talented and we hope you will return again to Charleston to perform. May you experience the very best in your career and God bless you."
