Menardini “Bridge” Timothee, born in Paris, France on January 13th 1981, is better known by his Producer name BridgeTown or Bridge for short. Growing up in Brooklyn, NY, he was raised by a musical family were he gained his talent as a pianist and drummer at the early age of five. Bridge, who is also of Haitian decent, started playing drums at his local community church with his father who held a position as The Director of Music Ministry.
While playing at his local community church, Bridge’s father enlisted the young inspiring composer into private lessons in the study of Jazz and Classical music thus setting the turning point of his musical career. Shortly after relocating to West Palm Beach, Fl., Bridge decided to take his career to the next level and accomplish the goals his father instilled in him.
At the age of 13, Bridge decided to begin his career as a Music Producer and Songwriter of R&B, Pop, Hip-Hop, and Gospel music. After a surge in popularity of Bridge’s talent as a Producer in his local community, the young composer was invited to meet the R&B Soul Pioneer, Raphael Saadiq in Los Angeles, California.
Soon after his meeting with Raphael, BridgeTown started working with some of today’s most respected Pop and R&B artist in the music industry today, such as: Jamie Foxx, Neyo, Kelis, and Trey Songz to name a few.
Bridge finally got his chance to show the world his musical talent by placing his first produced record with the “Queen of R&B”, Mary J Blige featuring Beyonce Knowles’: “Love A Woman” off her debut album, My Life II… The Journey Continues (Act 1).
