Duke Elliott Timbs has been a musician from an early age, first taught and inspired by his grandparents, legendary bluegrass musicians Frank & Minnie Beach.
Duke has played in, composed for, and recorded with many bands based in the Indianapolis area through the years, including The B.O. Bifocal Band, Flatbed, Blackheart, Sobriquet, Hammermill (in Los Angeles), Scoundrel, R.A.F., Code Blue, Axis, The Buzz, The Mojo Filters, The Boss-Tone Twanglers, Triode, The Users, and even a very brief stint in the fabled punk band Raw Meat.
After years of touring, the multi-instrumentalist now records rock and jazz-based fusion music in his home studio.
Lately he's been seen performing live with Bluescreamers.
