Tim Lefebvre Info
A native of Foxboro, Massachusetts who double-majored in political science and economics, Lefebvre spent three years gigging on a cruise ship before hitting New York and hooking up with drummer Zach Danziger, which led to gigs and recordings with guitarist Wayne Krantz. Once he began subbing for James Genus in the Saturday Night Live band, the walls to the TV world tumbled down, with gigs for The Sopranos, The Late Show With David Letterman, 30 Rock, and The Apprentice.
He has played on dozens of records, as well as performed and composed for several movie soundtracks and TV commercials, including Oceans 12, Oceans 13, Microsoft, The Departed, Please Give, Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle, Chevrolet, and Analyze That! In addition, he continues to be a freelance composer for JSM Music and Deetown Productions in NYC, and is presently remixing tracks for Maria Neckam, Benvenue, and Semi Precious Weapons for 2012 release.
Mr. Lefebvre also placed in both the Downbeat Reader’s and Critic’s Poll in 2010 and ' 11 for electric bass. Also several articles have been written about him in Bass Player Magazine, Bass Musician Magazine, and Guitarre + Bass Magazine.
Mr. Lefebvre has been seen on TV and touring extensively with Chris Botti and Rudder. He has appeared recently with Elvis Costello, John Mayer, Sting, Patti Austin, Jamie Cullum, Mark Guiliana's Beat Music, Uri Caine, David Binney, and Wayne Krantz.
