Timothy R. Smith has spent his career writing music that fuses contemporary and traditional elements into songs that inspire and unite communities of all ages. 

The bulk of Tim’s catalogue is based in the Psalms, culminating in his annual publicationForever I Will Sing. It features complete responsorial psalms and Gospel Acclamations for every Sunday and holy day. He writes: 

The Psalms are about our ageless encounter and covenant with the loving and compassionate God of Israel. This relationship transcends all time and history. As a composer, I try to create melodies that reflect my own experience and affect with a particular Psalm. Since, my perspective is limited to my own cultural experience, I think it’s essential to broaden my approach by exploring and developing melodies and harmonies that reach beyond my first inclinations.

Tim has a passion for helping parishes and organizations respond to the Church’s apostolic call towards evangelization. His ministry has taken him across the United States — presenting parish missions, men’s retreats and music ministry workshops that educate and inspire. His presentations feature music designed to encourage participation and foster prayerful reflection.

Tim has a Bachelor of Music degree from Michigan State University and Master of Music degree from Oakland University in Rochester Hills, Michigan. He and his wife, Kim, live in Waterford, Michigan. He currently serves as the Director of Music at Our Lady of the Lakes Church.
