Tea Leaf Green just announced they’ll be politely parting ways with bassist Reed Mathis as he pursues other musical endeavors. Mathis has been busy on a variety of projects including his upcoming album as well as performing with the Grateful Dead’s Bill Kreutzmann in Billy & the Kids. TLG has announced a string of 2016 tour dates for the coming fall.
After nearly nine years and four genre-spanning albums, Tea Leaf Green and bassist Reed Mathis have decided to part creative ways.
Reed joined us at a pivotal period in the life of our band, and we are forever grateful to him for the integral role he filled in TLG and for the collaborator and friend he has become. Reed has a unique musical voice, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors, the latest of which are the visionary Electric Beethoven project and Golden Gate Wingmen. Check ’em out!
We look forward to the next chapter in our history and will commence this new phase with a run of East Coast shows in October. Joining us on this tour will be beloved Bay Area bassist Eric DiBerardino.
Leafers, thank you for your continued support throughout the evolution of the band. We can’t wait to see you out there on the road!
