Tim Hare, Director of Operations at Alibi Music Library, has had several career journeys in music, and he’s just warming up. After playing in the local Boston scene with bands Baby Strange, Aloud, and The Painted Lights at the ripe old age of 19, he toured the UK for a few years before returning to the US and attending Berklee College of Music. Post-graduation, he worked for Warner Music Group doing VIP Concierge tours with Wiz Khalifa, Smashing Pumpkins, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, and Mac Miller, then moved to LA, working in production and day to day management for Mick Jones of Foreigner. Now working at Alibi Library and a freelance composer, his music has appeared in promos for ABC and CBS shows, as well as the short film ‘Charlie’. He talks shop about playing, touring, creating, working for rock stars, how to network, getting your foot in the door of that next music job and getting yourself out there, no matter what.
