The Meet & Greet: The Naked Truth About Timothy Bloom
Welcome to Celebuzz’s new feature, The Meet & Greet, where we sit down and chat with rising young stars of film, television and music before they hit the big time. Watch out for these future A-listers!
The first thing that stands out about Timothy Bloom is his velvety voice. In contrast to his chiseled, manly appearance -- complete with a few rockin’ tats -- he seems introspective and rather soft-spoken.
That’s not to say he’s shy by any means. In fact he’s perfectly willing to strip down to his bare essentials. Literally, buck naked.
That’s exactly what the R&B singer does in the eye-opening debut video for his first single "'Til the End of Time," which features Timothy and V. Bozeman wearing nothing but an embrace throughout the entire song. As the two sing to one another, the camera spins around revealing their uncovered assets! (see the sexy, NSFW-ish video on VEVO)
How did you come up with the video for "'Til the End of Time”?
I came up with the concept like 30 days after we did the record. When I was working on the song, I was in a very depressed state. I wanted to express that in the song. The video concept just complements that.
Did you find yourself on the set thinking, 'What have I gotten myself into?'
When I was driving there, yes. Once I got there, I couldn’t turn around. I had to do it.
Growing up, your dad had his own church. Has he seen the video?
Yes. For Thanksgiving, I took the video and showed it to my dad and my mom.
How did they react?
The first thing my dad said was "That’s a lot of ass." [Laughs]
Do you write all of your own songs?
Yes. I write my own songs and produce them.
What would you say are your biggest musical inspirations?
Jeff Buckley is one of them. I listened to Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, and Eric Clapton too. Growing up, my parents listened to a lot of country and gospel, so that music is definitely in my veins.
What’s next for you?
The EP is coming out March 8. There’s a promotional tour coming up, and the album In Full Bloom will be out this year.
"'Till the End of Time" is available on iTunes now.
