Join us this Friday evening as we welcome back one of our favorite local talents! Tim’s music is beautifully skilled and imbued with as much heart as skill. Treat yourself to his melodious tunes and our sumptuous sips!
Tim Ostdiek is a playful, uplifting, and engaging singer, songwriter and performer. He writes feel-good, big-hearted folk with a drop of something funky. With hopeful and purposeful songs, Ostdiek doesn’t shy from the deep and heavy. A tasteful and dynamic guitarist, Ostdiek often fits fingerpicking, strumming, and lead elements into one song. Whether in a concert hall, club, brewery, or living room, Ostdiek always reaches the hearts of his listeners and sends them out a little brighter than they came in.
His songwriting has garnered accolades such as honorable mention in the Telluride Troubadour and finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. His song “Goodbye” was featured in the PBS show Roadtrip Nation. Ostdiek has opened for some of the nation’s best singer/songwriters, such as Sarah Jarosz and Steve Forbert. and played several prominent Colorado venues such as Swallow Hill. Ostdiek is an important figure in the Longmont, CO, music scene, hosting a weekly open mic/jam and a monthly songwriting group. He plays upwards of 150 shows a year.
Originally from Scottsbluff, Nebraska, his love for music was born in a middle school guitar class. “Once I learned two chords I figured I could start making up my own songs,” Ostdiek said. He studied music at Western Nebraska Community College, then communications at the University of Nebraska before moving to Longmont, where he still lives. The move was brought about by the death of a close friend, a breakup, and the desire to start over and heal. This season in his life became the EP “Temporary Home.” In the fall of 2016 Ostdiek quit his job at a coffee shop and dropped out of his online classes to pursue music full timeBIO
