Editor’s Note: At the end of each year, we tally up all the article and video views on No Treble to come up with a list of the top 10 most popular bassists. This is entirely based on readership, not on opinions, polls, or anything else. Just having some fun.
Tim Lefebvre was a busy man in 2019. After leaving the Tedeschi Trucks Band in late 2018, the bassist was part of a variety of projects, including signing on with The Black Crowes in November.
Tim was also involved in a couple of signature pedal releases over the course of 2019.
Tim Lefebvre shared this on Twitter saying, “This one time gig led to many good things.” That gig was a date on Late Night with David Letterman in 2012, with Donald Fagen. It is cool to see Tim along with his other bandmates in Wayne Krantz Trio!
3Leaf Audio has reintroduced their popular octave pedal line with a new run of the Octabvre Mini. The pedal is a modified and miniaturized version of the original created with and for bassist Tim Lefebvre.
For the first time since 2013, brothers Chris and Rich Robinson of the Black Crowes will be putting their differences aside to reunite for a tour. The brothers will be joined by an all-new backing band including bassist Tim Lefebvre.
We recently featured a great Scary Pockets video with Tim Lefebvre anchoring the band on their take of “Valerie.” Here’s another one, with the band’s funky arrangement of Bob Marley’s “Is This Love.”
Amptweaker has released a new version of their TightFuzz pedal with bassist Tim Lefebvre. The Limited Edition Lefebvre TightFuzz is voiced to give his favorite settings when the knobs are all set straight up.
Bassist Tim Lefebvre has released a new album, “End of Daze,” with his latest group, Ego Mondo. The band is a trio project with drummer Gary Novak and keyboardist Scott Kinsey that channels rock, hip hop, and jazz vibes.
Drummer Mark Guiliana has just released his latest solo album, “BEAT MUSIC! BEAT MUSIC! BEAT MUSIC!” Guiliana enlisted some of his closest musical partners to fill out the album including Jason Lindner, BIG YUKI, and Tim Lefebvre.
