Tell us about yourself.
“My name is Tim Cox, and I am T Comix. I’m 26 and currently living abroad in Dusseldorf, Germany. I’m originally from Hartford, Connecticut and I’m taking advantage of this opportunity to get myself out there on an international level.”
How would you describe yourself?
“I’m a person who believes in perseverance. Nothing worth having in life is easy, and if it were, it wouldn’t be so special. I think thats why music is so appealing to me. I’m also someone who loves to make people laugh and feel good. There’s no better feeling.”
How did your entertainment journey begin?
“I started making music towards the end of high school as fun way to waste time. I played soccer throughout my four years and on the bus, we’d make up remixes to popular songs. I received so surprising feedback and decided to run with it. Positive reinforcement can be addicting.”
How would you describe your music to someone who has never heard it before?
“I have a few stories to tell and I make them as relatable as possible. I have a smooth sound and I love to work with classical instruments.”
What can we expect to see at your live performance?
“Energy and perfection.”
Who are your musical influences?
“My go-to artists are J Cole, Mac Miller, Ace Hood, and Kendrick Lamar. Each artist has a specific purpose and help bring out different emotions.”
Name one artist/producer that you would like to work with RIGHT
NOW if you could.
“Dreamville. I think J Cole and his team inspire greatness within themselves and I would love to be a part of that.”
What do you enjoy most about what you do?
“The completion of a new song, and the unknown of what people will think. Each one is a step in my journey and I view my music as something I can leave behind for the next generations of my family.”
What are some roadblocks or struggles you overcame in life?
“I had a falling out with my support circle, where everyone essentially up and left because I wanted to take this passion more seriously. It didn’t fall in line with what they wanted so they dipped. Mentally it was very hard to overcome, and I could have folded everything right then and there – but I pushed on.”
What is some advice you can give the next generation?
“Perservance is the key to anything in life. Nothing worth having is given to you other than life, and it is up to you to make yours the best you possibly can.”
