The songwriter side of R&B
Leon Timbo

“Singer/songwriter Leon Timbo,” writes Thom Jurek of, “has a unique, rootsy sound that incorporates equal measures of vintage soul, gospel, folk, R&B, funk, dance music, and even modern blues in a style referred to by his producer as ‘transparent soul.’” He numbers Bill Withers, James Taylor, Donny Hathaway, and Andrae Crouch among his influences, and he sometimes sings gospel music. He got his start performing at the Potter’s House Church in Dallas, where one night R&B star Tyrese was in the audience and asked Timbo to open his show at the House of Blues. Leon Timbo brings a songwriter streak to R&B that has been a bit neglected lately, and he comes to Michigan with a new album, “Lovers & Fools, Vol. 2.”

This program is made possible with support from the Ford Motor Company Fund. It is presented live, and also livestreamed on The Ark’s Facebook page.

This is a FREE show. Nonperishables accepted for Food Gatherers.
