Timothy Heller Bio: Early Life, Family and Education
Timothy Heller was raised in her hometown, where she attended Sunset High School. Unfortunately, we do not have much verified information concerning her parents and her early childhood, but we can expect more details to be uncovered in the near future seeing that Heller is becoming more and more popular. During her time at Sunset High School she often took part in school musicals and other stage productions, when she was able to use her talents and practice her skills to the fullest. In addition, she also played several instruments in the school band. She grew up with her younger sister named Isabela, who is also trying to start a career in music. Timothy has been very supportive of Isabela ever since she revealed to her older sister that she wanted to follow in her footsteps. Timothy frequently shares Isabela’s demos and snippets from her songs, and promotes her work.
Career Beginnings and “Dresses”
Shortly after matriculating from high school, Heller met a fellow Oregon native and aspiring musician Jared Ryan Maldonado. The two actually met while Jared was touring with a band whose lead singer was a mutual friend, and they stayed in touch after that, and soon found out that they had similar tastes in music, and that both of them would like to work on a more serious music project than those they were involved in previously. The result of their collaboration was a two-member band called “Dresses”, officially formed in 2012, and immediately started working on their music. The style of “Dresses” could be described as a mixture of indie and electronic music, and their songs ranged from party anthems to ballads. They released their first album the very next year, entitled “Sun Shy”, which was very well received by both critics and fans, being played nearly 15 million times on Spotify, with several other songs reaching over a million views as well. Their fame grew steadily, and they were soon booked to perform as the opening act for several other famous musicians, such as Melanie Martinez during her “Dollhouse Tour” in 2013 and 2014, and the French band “Phoenix”. Furthermore, several of their songs were featured on television shows, “Sun Shy” in an episode of ABC’s “Switched at Birth”, while the single “Catch” was featured on CW’s highly popular series “Vampire Diaries”. In 2013 they collaborated with singer Prince of Spain on a song entitled “Carelessly”, then released three EPs – “Lonely One”, “Pandora Whiteboard Sessions” and “Pandora Whiteboard Sessions: February 3rd”, as well as numerous singles, such as “Please Don’t Go”, “Frozen” and “Let Down”. In 2015, their most productive year, the duo broke up without issuing any official statement or comment on social media, leaving fans to wonder whether everything was okay between Timothy and Jared.
After a two-year break from music, Timothy marked her return with a debut single called “Sleep”, however, she had a rough start to her solo career, seeing that the official music video for her song was taken down from YouTube due to copyright infringement allegations only several weeks after it had been uploaded. Fortunately for her, the allegations were dropped, and the video was re-instated on her official YouTube channel on 23rd February 2018 and has reached nearly 300,000 views since. In addition, Timothy released another single entitled “See Ya!” in August 2018, and according to sources, we can expect new music from Heller in 2019.
Timothy Heller reached headlines at the end of 2017 when she accused her friend and fellow singer Melanie Martinez of rape and sexual assault. Heller revealed the rape allegations via a tweet, saying that the two were best friends at the time, and that Martinez performed sexual acts without her consent. Martinez did not deny that the two were intimate, however, she issued a statement saying that Heller brought false accusations against her, and that she would never do anything like that if she didn’t feel there was mutual consent. As far as we know, the accusations never reached court, but fans are still debating whether they were true or not. In addition, fans are speculating that the feud is the main theme in Melanie’s new single “Piggyback”.
Speaking about her personal life, Timothy has a boyfriend named Mikey who works as a music director. Even though they have been together for quite some time, there is not much information about him other than his name and profession. Timothy does not have children. Fans have often wondered whether she is really called Timothy, however, she has stated multiple times that it is her real name. She currently resides in Los Angeles with her boyfriend.
