ABOUT

Bassista Available for serious, ready-to-go opportunities.

In July 2021, I resigned from a rock band that rehearsed 4+ hours weekly and had not played out much yet. (It was a great experience with a good people, but just a bit toxic for me.) Though difficult to leave a couple friends behind and the very challenging, fun music, I did so to search for something (or some things) more interesting, collaborative, energetic and 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.

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--unless you are a legit tribute band--coloring a bit outside the lines without diminishing the "essence" of a tune should be okay. 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 recent band, I had my own 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. Prior to that, 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 created 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, if you are a racist, a bigot or not LGBT-friendly, save us both the headache and don't contact me. My world is one of love, peace, kindness, compassion and understanding. If kindness and respect are assured, let's create! Otherwise, keep looking, please.

Thank you!
