A native of Omaha, Nebraska, Halperin burst onto the national scene as a contestant on Season 10 of American Idol. With a field of more than 115,000 hopefuls vying for a spot on the show, Halperin emerged as a finalist.
During his time on American Idol, millions of viewers were introduced to Halperin’s fun-loving, genuine personality and musical talent, as he became one of the first contestants to debut an original song on the show.
With the help of Nationally Syndicated DJ Kidd Kraddick, Tim successfully transitioned from American Idol to his career as a Pop Artist and Songwriter. Tim was a regular guest on Kidd Kraddick in the Morning, and the show helped launch his debut album Rise and Fall in 2011. Immediately, Tim's music connected with a broad audience, as Rise and Fall topped the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Chart and went Top 15 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart.
Tim began touring on the success of his debut album, and has shared the stage with artists such as Andy Grammer, The Fray, Kelly Clarkson and Jason Derulo.
Halperin has never stopped writing. Albums Heart Tells Your Head (2014) and Searching For The Same Thing (2015) have followed the trend in both chart success and touring. Since 2015, Tim has released over 10 singles and is working on his fourth studio album.
Tim lives with his wife Kylie in Nashville, Tennessee. They met while Tim was playing at a Young Life Camp in 2013. While Tim is known to be one of the hardest working artists in the business, he is also known to be one of the most caring. Tim spends a month each summer playing at Young Life Camps. He also supports Kidd's Kids, a foundation that takes chronically/terminally ill children to Disney World each year.
