' biggest claim to fame came with his collaborations with Dave Matthews Band
. He has guested on most all their releases and has joined them on countless tours across the globe. He and Matthews
released the double-disc album Live at Luther College in January 1999, and Reynolds
separately issued a slew of solo albums: Stream (1993), Gossip of the Neurons (1996), Sanctuary (1997), and See Into Your Soul (2000).
He released two more of his own records -- Nomadic Wavelength and Stream -- in 2001 while opening for the DMB
and guesting during their performances. In 2003, Chaos View appeared from his T.R. Productions label. It was a jarring, futuristic, funky rock record on which he played all instruments and produced; it laid a template for what was to come with the next incarnation of his namesake trio.
In 2007, Reynolds
undertook another national acoustic duo tour with Matthews
that resulted in Live at Radio City. That same year, the guitarist began playing with bassist Mick Vaughn and drummer Dan Martier. They would eventually gel into a new, far more visible and stable incarnation of the TR3. Their mix of Reynolds
' quirky originals and unusual versions of cover songs by James Brown
, Led Zeppelin
, King Crimson
, and others added breadth and depth to their stage shows.
After an extended break from releasing his own records, Radiance, the studio debut from TR3, appeared in March of 2009. It was followed seven months later by the solo Parallel Universe. He and Matthews
undertook another acoustic tour later in the year, resulting in 2010's Live in Las Vegas.
The TR3 began touring almost nonstop at the end of that year, recording every show. A double-length concert set, From Space and Beyond, appeared in June of 2011; it resulted in even more road time. Reynolds
took almost no time off, playing solo shows and duos with Matthews
In early 2014, TR3 signed to ATO Records
, and in August, the pre-release single "All Over the Place" appeared. The full-length Like Some Kind of Alien Invasion appeared in October 2014. ~ MacKenzie Wilson & Thom Jurek, Rovi
