Tim Armstrong is a Grammy Award-winning musician, songwriter, artist, director, poet, record producer and independent label owner. During the 1980s he served in several hardcore and ska punk bands, most notably the band Operation Ivy. In 1991, he formed the seminal punk rock band Rancid, which is credited with the mainstream revival of punk rock in the mid-1990s, and is one the most commercially successful and respected punk bands of all time. Armstrong’s musical influence extends far beyond the punk rock realm - in 2003 he co-wrote eight songs with platinum selling artist Pink for her album Try This, which included the Grammy Award winning single Trouble. Tim grabbed another Grammy in 2013 for his work on Jimmy Cliff's album Rebirth. Other notable collaborations have included Joe Strummer, Cypress Hill, the Tim Timebomb & Friends series, and Travis Barker of Blink 182 (of which he has released 3 records with their band the Transplants), just to name a few.
