With a career spanning almost forty years, guitarist and sonic innovator Tim Reynolds is best known for
 his seemingly effortless guitar virtuosity, his masterful command of melody and timing, and for his
 uncanny ability to improvise on any instrument he touches. He’s explored almost every musical style,
from rock, jazz and blues to classical and reggae, and his wide-ranging talent is evident each time he
 picks up his acoustic or electric guitar. Technically brilliant, yet emotionally honest, Reynolds’ music is
 nspired 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 throughout much of the Bible-blt
 Midwest, eventually settling in St. Louis, MO. He started playing the piano at age eight, but then 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 added 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 relocated to Santa Fe, NM, to pursue a solo
 acoustic career. He spent the 1990s and 2000s 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. Tim continues to surprise and delight his fans with rare solo acoustic
 performances throughout the country.
 
 After a number of years in New Mexico, Reynolds moved back to the East Coast to the Outer Banks of
 North Carolina. 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 since 2007 and have
 released a number of CDs. Their latest CD and first major label release, “Like Some Kind of Alien
 Invasion,” came out in 2014.
 
A two time Grammy nominee, Reynolds is currently lead guitarist for the Dave Matthews Band and
 performs as one-half of the acoustic Dave Matthews-Tim Reynolds duo. Tim’s longtime friend and
 collaborator, Matthews says, “I’m dying to go on the road with Tim just the two of us again. I love
 playing with Tim because I think he’s the greatest guitar player I’ve ever met. He is so constantly
 spontaneous and really is so connected to what he’s doing when he plays. He makes everything have
 more room for the listener and more musical space. He’s a profound musical talent.”
