Timmy T (born Timothy Torres in Fresno, California on September 21, 1967) is a freestyle performer and musician. He is best known for his 1991 Billboard Hot 100 #1 single "One More Try".
Although the freestyle has been quite popular in New York and Miami, Timmy T was one of the most successful singers in freestyle that came from California.
Timmy T started out in the 1980s in small rap groups in Fresno, but felt that he would rather do dance music. He purchased a Moog synthesizer and a Roland TR-808 drum machine at a pawn shop, and recorded his first single, "Time After Time", in his garage.
