We had the good fortune of connecting with The Timberline and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi The Timberline, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Because we all have careers outside of the music industry, we try to spend a lot of time on weeknights and weekends working on music, preparing for sets, or managing other aspects of the band together. We get really excited for new opportunities to play live shows or to work on new material. Our passion for writing and playing music is the driving factor behind our success and motivation as a band.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Formed in 2017 in Fort Collins, Colorado, The Timberline is a modern rock band with pop-punk influences. The band is currently comprised of members Terran Hause (Vocals/Guitar), Clint Petrun (Drums/Percussion), and Mike Boschert (Vocals/Guitar/Bass). Terran, at the time a law student at UCLA School of Law, started writing for the band in Los Angeles. Mike joined the band in 2018 and became an essential part of the writing process after sharing his collection of demos with the band. With most the band in Colorado, Terran exchanged demos with Mike and Clint over email to facilitate the writing process despite the long distance. Since then, The Timberline has played shows at various Colorado venues such as the Aggie Theatre, Hodi’s Half Note, Surfside7, and the 2019 Taste of Fort Collins – opening for the band DREAMERS and the legendary Rick Springfield. The Timberline released “Faulty Wires”, the band’s first full-length record, in 2019 with a CD Release Show at the Aggie Theatre in Fort Collins. They were supported by local acts Holdfast. and Valdez. Besides navigating full-time work schedules, this year has been particularly challenging for our band because of the coronavirus pandemic. We cancelled a summer tour and instead utilized this time to work on new material. We are currently working on our second album, which is scheduled to be recorded in March 2021 with Producer Chris Beeble at The Blasting Room in Fort Collins, Colorado. While opportunities for live music have been limited, we have found creative ways to still perform our music in a safe and socially distant way. We hosted a couple of live stream performances and participated in FoCoMX’s Drive and Jive series at the Holiday Twin Drive In Theatre.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
What we like best about Denver & Fort Collins: the local music and art scenes are incredibly supportive and provide an exciting network of eclectic people. We enjoy all of the music venues in Fort Collins and Denver, so whether it’s Red Rocks or a small local music venue, we’d recommend going to a show! Also, this year many music venues have had a difficult time staying in business, so we hope they receive lots of support after the pandemic is over. We would also recommend trying out a local brewery or restaurant as well as making a trip to the mountains. We love to get outside and enjoy our beautiful state.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Tyler Lindgren has mentored and supported our band since we first started writing and recording music in 2017. He produced, mixed, and mastered our first full-length record “Faulty Wires” in 2019, and continues to provide us with valuable insight and encouragement. Tyler is an incredible musician and even better friend; we are so thankful to have him around!
