Tim DeLaughter

Tim DeLaughter (born 18 November 1965 in Dallas, Texas), is a singer and songwriter. He has gained attention as a very energetic and engaging frontman for both Tripping Daisy and his current band, The Polyphonic Spree. Following the break-up of Tripping Daisy, and prior to the formation of The Polyphonic Spree, DeLaughter opened the record store Good Records located on Lower Greenville in Dallas. Since 2001, DeLaughter has toured extensively with his new band, and has collaborated with acts such as Stereolab, Death in Vegas, Peter Gabriel and David Bowie. He scored the music for the film, Thumbsucker. The soundtrack to that film was released on September 13, 2005. He was heavily influenced by the death of Tripping Daisy's lead guitarist, Wes Berggren. Though he was raised somewhat religiously, DeLaughter says he started finding religion in other things that had nothing to do with the church—it was more the environment, trees and sun and weather and, you know. I found that my prosperity is through the growth of the environment, the trees and stuff. It’s weird—I see, like, the asphalt and there’s a little patch of grass that grows up in that asphalt and cars are going over it daily.
