Tim Bailey Jr.

Band: 
Ariana Grande

He’s a soft spoken individual, but when behind his instruments, Timothy Bailey, Jr doesn’t need to use words to be heard, felt, and understood. This accomplished musician picked up drums at three, violin at eleven, viola at thirteen, and marching percussion at fourteen. But at fifteen, the young music enthusiast found his voice in the electric bass guitar. The Kansas City native studied his craft on both sides of the state line, as well as in Louisville, KY, and Los Angeles, CA, where he now resides. In his nearly two decades of playing professionally, he’s been called to accompany the likes of Natalie Cole, Chrisette Michelle, Richard Smallwood, Israel Houghton, Justin Beiber, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, DJ Quik, Billy Davis and Marlyn McCoo, and Jamie Foxx, just to name a few. He’s toured the world on electric and synth bass with many different artists such as Ariana Grande, Lalah Hathaway, Ruben Studdard, Charice, Judith Hill, Mario, Deborah Cox, El Debarge, Chris Brown, and Tyrese Gibson. He’s had frequent appearances on daytime and late night television shows like Good Day LA, The Ellen Degeneres Show, The Windy Williams Show, The Arsenio Hall Show, and The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. Timothy’s bass lines can also be heard on projects by Jill Scott, Jackiem Joyner, Hidden Beach’s Unwrapped Series, and countless other projects on independent and major labels.
