ABOUT TIM LEFEBVRE:
Throughout his wide-ranging career, Tim Lefebvre has amassed a reputation for being one of the world’s most innovative bassists. The Foxboro-native’s creative playing style is an addictive blend of jazz improvisation, rock undertones, and electronic grooves that can be heard on his appearances on over 150 recordings, ranging from Grammy award-winning albums such as David Bowie’s Blackstar to the soundtracks of classic films such as The Departed. Now based in Los Angeles, Lefebvre is currently the bassist of the dynamic blues rock ensemble Tedeschi Trucks Band, and he can be heard on their two most recent releases, Let Me Get By (2016) and Live From The Fox Oakland (2017). Before joining the group, he has worked with artists such as Wayne Krantz, Chris Botti, and Leni Stern, and he continues to work with contemporary artists such as Empire of the Sun, Knower, Chris Thile, Matisyahu, and his fellow Blackstar bandmates in the Donny McCaslin Group. Through all of these experiences over the past two decades, Lefebvre has constantly expanded his musical artistry, discovering new sounds for the bass guitar and influencing a generation of bassists along the way.
