Tim Reynolds TR3
With a musical career spanning more than thirty-five years, guitarist and sonic innovator Tim Reynolds is known for his masterful command of melody and timing and for his uncanny ability to improvise on any instrument he touches. Having explored most musical styles, from rock, jazz and blues to classical and reggae, Reynolds’ wide-ranging musical versatility is evident each time he picks up his acoustic or electric guitar. Technically brilliant, yet emotionally honest, Reynolds’ music is inspired and authentic.

Tim Reynolds was born 15 December 1957 in Wiesbaden, Germany, to devoutly religious military parents. He had a peripatetic childhood, moving from Alaska and through much of the Bible-belt Midwest, eventually settling in St. Louis, MO. His musical introduction began at age eight with piano lessons, but he quickly progressed to playing the acoustic guitar and electric bass guitar in the local church gospel band during his teens. During this time he was also secretly experimenting and riffing with forbidden rock, funk and soul. Upon graduating from high school, Reynolds left the constraints of his conservative upbringing and eventually moved to Charlottesville, VA, where he explored his musical craft even further, adding psychedelic and progressive rock to his burgeoning repertoire of music.


It was in the mid 1980s that Reynolds founded his breakthrough electric power trio, TR3 (Tim Reynolds Trio), known for their fusion of funk, rock, and jazz. He toured with TR3 during the 1980s and 1990s, using a rotating cast of musicians. It was at this time he met and befriended Dave Matthews and their ongoing musical collaboration began. He eventually decided to disbanded TR3, relocate to Santa Fe, NM, and pursue his solo acoustic career. During the 1990s and 2000s, his musical progression continued throughout his many years on the road as a solo guitar wizard playing for packed houses and to crowds who quickly determined that he is one of the most talented and thoughtful musicians on the circuit today.

After a number of years in New Mexico, Reynolds relocated to the Outer Banks of North Carolina in 2007. After a chance meeting with two talented musicians, bass player Mick Vaughn and drummer Dan Martier, a few rehearsals later, and several stealth appearances throughout North Carolina, Reynolds decided to resurrect the electric TR3. TR3 has been touring ever since, and in 2009 they released their first studio CD “Radiance.” A live TR3 CD is scheduled for release in 2011. He continues to surprise and delight his fans with rare acoustic performances throughout the country.

Reynolds discography is more than prolific. He continues to release a large number of acoustic and electric CDs, from the widely-acclaimed “Stream” to his recently-released acoustic “The Limbic System” and collaborates frequently with other musicians on a number of side projects.

Reynolds is currently lead guitarist for the Dave Matthews Band and performs as one-half of the acoustic Dave Matthews-Tim Reynolds duo. He has performed on nearly all of DMB’s CDs.

THE BAND...

Aaron Lebos is a well-known, versatile guitarist born and raised in the South Florida area. He received his Bachelors from the University of Miami and a Masters at Florida International University, both in Jazz Performance. Aaron developed much of his versatility playing gigs, touring and recording in the diverse South Florida music scene. He currently plays with some of the biggest names in South Florida such as Nicole Henry, Tony Succar and the Spam Allstars, as well as doing many other gigs and sessions.

Rodolfo Zuniga is a native of San Jose, Costa Rica . Since his arrival in Miami, he has become one of the most in demand jazz drummers and educators in South Florida. Currently Rodolfo is recording his second jazz album as a leader, keeping a busy local and national performance schedule, and touring the world with Julio Iglesias. He teaches at Florida International University, Miami Dade College, and Broward College.

Eric England is a versatile and energetic bassist living in Miami. He comes from the greater Philadelphia area. Growing up Eric was surrounded by a musical family with both his dad and uncle being local musicians. It wouldn't be long before he found himself picking up an instrument of his own. Initially guitar, but the school band didn't have guitar, so bass guitar would soon be the answer. As time went on Eric only grew more serious about playing music and soon took up the upright bass as well expanding his musical taste from Motown and the Beatles to Jazz. Although young at the time, the Philadelphia Neo-Soul scene would soon also greatly influence Eric's musical direction and approach. Eventually, Eric would make his way to the University of Miami music program and achieve a music degree. Eric is now a full time working musician in the Miami area and is devoting most of his time to a select few original projects. He adds a ferocity and intense groove to the Aaron Lebos Reality which makes people stand up and move.
