“The great contribution on this CD is that it does demonstrate what a guitar-picking wonder Reynolds is, even more so than on earlier collaborations between these two. Somebody should sign this guy up, and quick”. ~ Thom Jurek, All Music Guide

Tim Reynolds & TR3
Featuring: Tim Reynolds - Guitar
Tim Reynolds has been playing music all of his life. Starting as a bass player in a gospel band in his hometown of St. Louis to his break through band in the 80’s TR3 and forward to recording with and touring with the Dave Matthews Band and the Dave Matthews Tim Reynolds Acoustic Duo. Tim’s progression has continued through his last 8 years on the road as a solo acoustic guitar wizard playing for packed houses who have come to realize this is not Dave side man this is one of the most talented and thoughtful players on the circuit today!!
Now things have come full circle and TR3 is back again in 2008 to Rock and Funk your house down. The songs will be a mix of updated Tim classics to wild covers of everything from James Brown to Prince to Tim’s newest catalogue of material he is preparing just for this tour.
Tim has spent the last 8 years living in New Mexico but after a sudden move to the Outer Banks of North Carolina in 2007 Tim ran across two players that would eventually form this new version of TR3. Mick Vaughn will be on bass. Mick moved to the Outer Banks in 1995 after many years playing in Chicago with Scott Bennett and opening for such bands as Jimmy Cliff and Dave Mason. Mick has been playing locally for several years until he ran into Tim this past summer. Drummer Dan Martier grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and spent most of the 80’s in various bands playing the club scene 6 nights a week. After teaming up with his wife and powerful soul singer Laura they formed Express in Florida and toured heavily until being drawn to the Outer Banks in 1989 where he has remained an active player on the local scene. After a chance meeting of the three talented players, a few rehearsals and several stealth appearances around the North Carolina shore Tim realized it was time to get back to the basics…rockin out the way only Tim can.
Starting in January 2008 TR3 is back….bigger, stronger and better then ever.
'Described as having that indefinable "IT" factor, Kieran's technical proficiency and gift for writing melodies and playing them with such evocative expression has enthralled audiences worldwide. His repertoire is a constant work in progress, show-casing intricate compositions, captivating soulful ballads, and infusions of tight, funk-jazz. At just 19 years old, his career is already well advanced on a world scale, touring the US, EU and Japan promoting his fourth CD, 'Per Se', as well as 'Guitar Paradise' with Sony Music Japan and representing Maton Guitars. Kieran has toured, performed and opened for such legendary artists as Jackson Browne, Los Lobos, Tommy Emmanuel and Michael Franti, to name a few. For Kieran, this is just the begining.'
