Bassista Available for serious collaboration or opportunities.

I am open to things that are interesting, collaborative, not mundane, and creative. I am not in a hurry to jump into a wrong situation, but if there's a match I can be up-to-speed extremely quickly. If you have serious skills and you are not attached to a band, please tell me about yourself and maybe we can piece together something cool. (I have my contact info below!)

FULL DISCLOSURE: I play bass for a a Phil Collins tribute band (local touring in primarily the SE States) and that affects one weekend per month. w w w .StillCollinsUSA

I can possibly help with other projects that are truly novel/epic and not overly time-consuming. Bonus Stars if you have some huge talent lined up or it's an all-girl project. I have done both covers and originals and like them both. I prefer heavier rock, but genre is really not an issue as I can play lots and lots of stuff.

I like "different" and coloring a bit outside the lines without diminishing the "essence" of a tune, although when needed I can normally replicate a studio bass line, too.

I love playing great music with talented people, but kindness rules. I tried to place a good variety of recent things in my music section here, but please know that I am very versatile and especially love edgy rock, high-energy dance tunes, and jazzy chords.

Prior to my current work with my 11-member Still Collins band (StillCollinsUSA) and my most recent central Florida band, I had my own 7-piece band for a few years, but I have to dissolve it as I relocated away from SE Florida to Central FL. :-( It was loads of work and we had some decent successes.

In other places and times, I played as the bassist for a rock band out of West Palm Beach, Florida that played all-original rock with an edgy acoustic rock sound. While there, I enjoyed creating several dozen unique, original bass lines.

I am open to hearing and discussing all ideas and concepts. I would love to hear from you. My phone is 32 1 - 20 9 - 65 44 (texting is fine) or you can email me at TiaJoliePhillips (at ) out look (dot) com. [If that cell number did not show it is three two one, two zero nine, six five four four.]

One last VERY important thing. We are each unique, but share a love for music. If you are not OK with people who are different than you, please save us both the headache and don't contact me. My world is one of love, peace, kindness, compassion, acceptance and understanding. If kindness and respect are assured, let's create!

Thank you!

Tia Jolie
