This week's guest is Tim Lefebvre, a player prized for his ability to deliver impassioned and inventive performances both in the studio and under the stage lights while backing up an incredible list of artists that spans many genres. From the carefully sculpted grooves of David Bowie's Black Star to the soulful jamming of the Tedeschi Trucks Band to the wild improvisations of Wayne Krantz, Tim's bass lines always give the songs exactly what they need. Here, he talks with host Josh Paul about working with some of the aforementioned artists, his journey from learning the instrument to finding his own voice, and all of the many tools of the trade that he relies on.
