Tim Vesely (born 10 December 1963) is a Canadian musician and songwriter. He is best known as the bassist for the indie rock band Rheostatics, in which he shared vocal duties with bandmates Dave Bidini and Martin Tielli. Vesely wrote much of the band's conventionally pop and rock-oriented material, including both of the band's most successful singles, "Claire" and "Bad Time to Be Poor".
He has also released two albums with his own band, The Violet Archers, and plays bass with Great Aunt Ida. Vesely was also a member of L’Étranger, appearing on that band's final album, Sticks and Stones, in 1986.
