ABOUT

My name is Phillip Tackett; my musical alias is known as "Crimson Cyclo." My upcoming works are a blend of [mainly] progressive, alternative, and sometimes jazz & blues-related rock. I'm currently in the process of recording samples/demos of my work, which I have been practicing on-and-off with in the past 2 years. Though I have a slightly busy schedule, I am hoping to try and squeeze in more time for session practices both for myself, and any any local rock bands in the Charlotte, North Carolina area that are looking for a new musician (preferably a bassist or drummer).

NOTE: I'm a student who has school from late August to early December (9am to 3pm Mondays/Fridays; 9am-6pm Wednesdays), and I also work part-time at a theater, meaning my weeknights are sometimes partially booked. This means what time I have off will vary.
