Local Talent: Jonathan Timber


Jonathan Timber, the 19-year-old New York City native who lives in Greensboro, has been biting around the edges of YES! Weekly for some time. We’ve featured his friends, his band and his line of Velicious Equenzi T-shirts in our pages, and now we have the man himself. Of his clothing line, which he produces with a partner, he says: “Equenzi is a fishing village in Italy. Velicious is ‘delicious’ with a V on it.” The line already includes those aggressively-styled T-shirts and knit hats, and will expand to include jeans in the spring. His band, Curve the Chaos, has upcoming projects with the Urban Sophisticates and House of Fools. “I just want to make good music,” Timber says. “I grew up playing Jimi Hendrix, Phish, everything. I don’t want to limit myself to one kind of music If I feel I can do everything.” When asked to comment on his mad B-boy skillz, Timber shrugs and laughs. “That’s just a hobby,” he says.
