His name wasn’t the one on the album cover. On the street, he was just a regular guy. But on stage, Tim Ellis became a rip-roaring guitar god who rocked the center of the music universe in Portland, Oregon for over three decades. "THIS IS TIM: A Musical Life" traces the artistic journey of Oregon Music Hall of Fame guitarist Tim Ellis and his choices when faced with every artist’s dilemma: a life on the road, on stage, and in the spotlight; or a life at home, raising a young and growing family. Through rare archival television footage, intimate home movies, and interviews with the musicians he inspired—including Grammy-winning songwriter Sam Martin, Thomas Lauderdale of Pink Martini, and Everclear frontman Art Alexakis—"THIS IS TIM" provides an intimate portrait of man who tried to have it all and the lives he changed along the way.
