“The Cities 97 Sampler has been an amazing MN tradition for the last three decades and it’s always great to see a local artist share their music for a good cause. Congrats to Tim Mahoney for being featured on the final edition.” - Joe Mauer 



A career as a working musician and songwriter is one of those gigs that people look at and think, “How awesome would that be?” Well, Minneapolis based Tim Mahoney has been doing it his way for over fifteen years now. What began as a side career with huge aspirations while Mahoney was waiting tables has now blossomed into a full-fledged career. And make no mistake, the way that Mahoney hustles, it IS a job, but one he is very happy to have. To date, he’s sold over 100,000 units of his various releases between a solo career and his part as a member of The Blue Meenies. And he also has the raw talent to win multiple awards year after year. In fact, Mahoney was featured in Rolling Stone Magazine in 2007 for their 40th anniversary issue when he won a Ray-Ban promotion. He’s also won or placed high in songwriting contests about fifteen times over the past decade. In 2011, Mahoney appeared in a commercial for Platos Closet, an upscale used clothing store, and the spot, which features Mahoney’s song, “Piece of You,” ran in 40 markets nationwide. Then, of course, was his appearance on NBC's new hit reality show The Voice. Mahoney was chosen by Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine as one of his 8 team members after hearing Mahoney's stunning rendition of Sam Cooke's "Bring it On Home to Me." And while Mahoney was eliminated from the competition on the episode that aired in May 2011, the iTunes single of his duet with Casey Weston of "Leather and Lace" reached at high as #32 on the iTunes singles chart.

Tim also has a heartfelt passion for giving of himself and his music to others. See the Giving Back section to see how Tim reaches out into many communities to help others

For the first time ever, listen to Tim as he covers his first Top 10 hit, Greatest Love Story by Lanco. After connecting personally with the lyrics and overall sound of this lyrical masterpiece, Tim says it just felt right to cover.


Since hearing this track by the iconic Prince for the first, Tim has always envisioned this song like this. His last tour was solo piano vocals, which Tim believes shows the raw element of a great song with emotional lyrics.
