Tim Reynolds, TR3 working on new album
Are Tim Reynolds and TR3 working on a brand new album? It sure seems that way.
Back on Friday, May 30th, Reynolds' website posted that a 'big announcement' was coming soon. Though it gave very little away in terms of real information, it did say, "Hey folks! Stay tuned for a monumental announcement regarding a brand new, all original TR3 album and nationwide tour! Details to come soon!" (note to Tim and friends: We're waiting!)
The talk of a new album followed TR3's February tour, which hit most of the Eastern shore from South Carolina to Massachusetts, and as far west as Illinois. When that trek wrapped up, Reynolds took a break before announcing his one and only solo show of the year at Titusville, Florida at a fundraiser for Rotary Club of Titusville.
The aforementioned show took place August 9 at Sand Point Park, and was designed to raise awareness of Rotary's mission to provide education, better health, and water to those in need.
If you want to see Reynolds again this year, consider getting tickets to another benefit show. He'll play Farm Aid on Saturday, Sept. 13 at Walnut Creek Amphitheatre in Raleigh, North Carolina with Dave Matthews. That will come just days after DMB and the DMB Caravan play at the Gorge on Labor Day Weekend. They'll take over the Main Stage to play two headline sets each night – one acoustic and one electric.
Meet Dave Matthews' right-hand man (Updated May 22, 2013)
Known for a unique ability to improvise on nearly any instrument, and with a diverse musical background that has spanned well over three decades, Tim Reynolds is recognized for much more than his collaborations with the Dave Matthews Band.
Born in Germany and raised in a military family, Reynolds learned piano at the age of 8, then moved to acoustic guitar and electric bass guitar in his teens. He would later add psychedelic and progressive rock to the mix, and fronted his own trio, TR3, known for their fusion of funk, rock and jazz. It was in the late 1980's that he met Dave Matthews, and since that time he has appeared on all Dave Matthews Band releases and joined them on tours around the world.
Beyond DMB and a highly successful solo career, Reynolds' chance meeting with bass player Mick Vaughn and drummer Dan Martier eventually resulted in the resurrection of the electric TR3. The group has been touring ever since, and in 2009 released their first studio album, "Radiance." The band also has an open taping policy, contending that no two concerts are alike.
On the road, Reynolds often performs in the name of charitable causes. Alongside Dave Matthews, he appeared on a 2008 album called "Songs For Tibet," an initiative to support Tibet, Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso and to speak out against the human right violations allegedly committed against Tibet by China. Reynolds has also appeared at Farm Aid, and with Matthews, was one of the first musicians to embrace the concept of enabling fans to drive charitable contributions of their choice through his concerts.
The Dave Matthews band went back on the road in North America beginning November 30, 2012 with back-to-back shows at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The final date before the holiday break was a show on December 22 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. The tour picked up again in 2013, and currently has U.S. dates listed through September 8 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California.
Reynolds and the Dave Matthews Band recently debuted a new set that features a 60 foot long x 20 foot high video wall that curves around the stage. During concerts, the screen shows live vide of the band and other original works created by the crew. The objective is to get fans in all parts of the arena to enjoy the show, regardless of where they might be sitting.
