I have played harp for 25 years, from symphonies to rock bands to tv shows. I was featured on Jack White's album, "Lazaretto", had a cameo on the show "Nashville", and have played on over 40 albums.
I am available for weddings, receptions, parties, church services, and recording sessions.
If you want something totally unique, I am an award winning vocalist and can sing while I play!
I can play solo, or I can arrange music to be played with any instrumentation you might want... classical, love songs, pop songs, whatever you need!
I also am just as comfortable improvising as I am reading music, so if you need a harpist for your worship team or band, or for a recording session, I'm your girl!

Harpist Timbre Cierpke has been playing in the Jackson Symphony since she was 15, one of the youngest people to ever play on contract with the symphony.
Her career extends far beyond the orchestra however. As a harpist, vocalist, composer, and songwriter, Timbre Cierpke is changing the way the world views classical music. With her extensive experience with both orchestral and rock music, she draws from both worlds to create a truly unique sound.
Timbre has recorded and performed with famous artists such as Jack White of the White Stripes, Tom Jones, blue-grass legend Ricky Skaggs, as well as rock bands like mewithoutYou and the Chariot, racking up over 50 albums credits so far.
As a harpist, she has performed all over the world, even performing her own compositions with full orchestra in cathedrals throughout Scandinavia. She has played harp in over a dozen different symphonies, including the London Symphony Orchestra.
As a vocalist, Timbre has performed in cathedrals throughout Europe, as well as singing in a premiere of Eric Whitacre’s “City and the Sea” at Carnegie Hall.
Timbre also fronts her neoclassical folk-rock band “Timbre”, which has toured throughout Europe and the US. Their latest album, Sun & Moon, has been called “exquisite” (PopMatters) and “a gorgeous tapestry of audible poetry.” (Earmilk)
“If there were ever anything approaching a universal definition for harmonious, or beautiful, it might just be somewhere inside Sun & Moon.” - SputnikMusic
Sometimes haunting, sometimes driving, sometimes unabashedly joyful, Timbre creates a musical experience that is completely unique and compelling, reminding listeners that music can move us like nothing else can.
