There are at least three musical artists called Timothy including a British calypso artist, a Christian pop rock band from Presov, Slovakia and a power-pop band from Adelaide, South Australia.
1. The little-known calypso artist was featured on one of the classic calypso compilation albums, London Is The Place For Me: Trinidadian Calypso in London, 1950-1956. He was also features on the second London Is The Place For Me volume, under the name King Timothy
2. The Slovakian group was formed from youth group musicians in church "Cirkev Bratska" in Presov, Slovakia. They do their music to worship God they love. Their songs varies from classic pop through rock even to some touches of reggae.
3. The Australian power-pop trio was an early incarnation of current Adelaide band Fear of Flying, formed in 1995 as a three-piece comprised of Scott Doherty (vocals/guitar), Troy McNamara (drums) and Nathan Yabsley (bass).
Timothy released a series of EPs over the next five years: Somewhat After the Actual Event (1996), Life's OK Today (1997) and Joe Jerry (2000), which was produced by Geoff Stapleton of 1980's Australian super-group, GANGgajang. In 1997, the band reached the final of the Australian National Campus Band Competition, only to be narrowly beaten by WA representatives Eskimo Joe.
In 2001, after adding Jade Robinson (bass) to the lineup, Timothy changed their name to Fear of Flying. Although only Scott and Troy remain from the original Fear of Flying lineup, the band continue to record and play live.
