Fiddlin' around for years with Dave Matthews Band, Boyd Tinsley must have made a lot of friends.

Considering that, as of mid-2003, violinist Boyd Tinsley had been the first member of the Dave Mathews Band to release a solo album, True Reflections is a remarkably low-key affair.
Ballads dominate the program and even when Matthews himself makes a cameo appearance, along with a very subdued Dirty Dozen Brass Band on the title track, the groove stays bubbling under.
Yet that is precisely the appeal of Tinsley's debut.

Boyd Tinsley's got a lot of surprises up his sleeve on this, his first solo album.
As the violinist in the Dave Matthews Band, capable of reeling of hot solos at a moment's notice, you might think his own outing would be full of jazzy instrumentals that push the world/fusion side of the DMB sound.
Not only is the jazzier aspect of things completely eschewed, Tinsley doesn't even feature his violin very much.

As an innovator of the bow and strings, Tinsley’s prowess has even caught fans to play "air violin" during DMB performances.
