Upon discovering a guitar in his parents attic, Tim Mirth hasn't had many days without the instrument in his hands. Mirth's music has been called "impressionistic" and he is said to have a "really unique approach to the instrument". After hearing Coltrane for the first time as a 16 year old, jazz became the foundation of Tim's music . The freedom of expression exemplified by Coltrane, Rosenwinkel, Mingus, and Dolphy has most influenced him.

The Tim Mirth Trio is ramping up from the pandemic in this latest incarnation seeking to build on the great tradition of jazz guitar trios with originals and arrangements of standards and popular songs. Tim's trio recently played NYC's Bar Next Door with strong endorsements from some of the finest jazz guitarists on the planet. Tim has played all over the Eastern US and in Europe with a variety of groups such as Night Terrors, Stellar Regions, Red Side Visible, and solo.

He has a variety of new releases that cover the musical spectrum from his groups such as jazz metal outfit Red Side Visible with 2021 release "A Break from Normality", avant garde free jazz group Night Terrors with 2021 double album release "Hear Again?", and 2020's Mirth Co-Liberation Project tribute to Wayne Shorter. This latest project seeks to explore even new ground.
