Dedicated to serving

Community Outreach

I am dedicated to helping out in my community.  As a member of the nonprofit Hug Detroit, I get the opportunity to do just that all year long.  

Helping others find peace

As a contributer to both the Insight Timer and Mindhouse apps, I get the opportunity to develop meditations specifically geared towards overcoming various hindrances. Things such as unforgiveness, anger, insecurities and more are addressed in my compositions. 

Food for your soul

Here at TimPris Media, you will find calming music to de-stress, to practice yoga to, or to help in whichever negative areas of life you may find yourself in.  Feel free to sample some of the videos here and find something that suits you.  

2020 News


What's New this year

Hello everyone, TIm here.  I am the CEO of TimPris Media and I am happy to share with you all of the great things happening with TimPris in 2020.  I have  licensed my meditation music to both Insight Timer and MindHouse.  The latter is based in India and I am quite excited at the potential for growth there. 

Next up, I'd like to announce the return of Sapphire Rhythm. I have tweaked the name a bit and we will now be known as Sapphire Richmond. Shaton Andrews will be the featured vocalist and we will soon be announcing concert dates.

I am also returning to the recording studio to complete work for Gospel Artist E'Lee as well as TimPris' latest partnership with the amazing Brandy Scott. Miss Scott is the CEO of BrandyVision Inc. and is also a very dynamic vocalist. TimPris will be working on projects that are both in house as well as voiceover work and music producton for films by Miss Scott's company.
