Timo Shanko
Timo Shanko grew up in Santa Monica, CA, where he studied electric bass before attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 1989. Timo was a founding member of the Fully Celebrated Orchestra with alto saxophonist Jim Hobbs.  

In the ‘90s, he toured with blues master Eddie Kirkland as bassist and Band Director, and co-founded the Prodigal Suns, who were signed to Geffen Records.  He then developed his skills on tenor saxophone and now plays both bass and sax equally.  In 2009,

Timo joined G. Love & Special Sauce, touring major venues in the US, Japan, Australia, and also performed with many major artists.  In addition to his own trio, Timo currently performs with Dub Apocalypse (winner of the Boston Music Award for Best International Artist). 

Timo has one of the biggest collections of self-notated transcriptions in the world, and has also written many transcription books for Hal Leonard Publishing, from Sonny Stitt and Wayne Shorter to Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis.
