My musical journey began in Brooklyn, New York at the age of two.  My passion for music has allowed me to go places, see the world and do what I love everyday and for that, I'm eternally thankful.  I want my music to go as far as it can possibly go and achieve the most positive effect on our society and the world as a whole.  This next chapter for me is very exciting and there's so much in store for me, the Apostles and the ears of the world, so to be quite frank, I just can't wait.  How Many Bodies??  :)


I go by 'Bailie' if you know me :)  I picked up an axe 20 years ago and never looked back. I'm a blues man with a full head of hair, a big heart and a full glass of whiskey.  Laying back in the cut is what I live for.  It's my job to inject that funky twangy business into the groove. It's got to stay well seasoned ;)

I'm excited for the future of the Funk Apostles because all these cats have so much personality.  Cory brought these crazy characters together and since then it's been family.  The future is bright and the groove is relentless.


It's pronounced "Tay-Ron" damn it, not "Tyrone", "TuhRon", or "Taron" lol  So about me...I don't think there's been a period in my life where I didn't play drums. As a kid from Garland, Texas, I just wanted express myself and music was my answer.  I  consider myself a craftsman in the Funk Apostles. Honestly, we all are!  We come from many shapes, forms, and backgrounds of music.  When you put that together on a stage you'd think it would clash, but Hell no! Not with this group!!! We're quite patient and mindful of each other. We've tapped into something that pulls you in from beat one.



I'm a keyboard player based out of both LA & NYC. I've played/toured with such artists as Miss Lauryn Hill, Talib Kweli, Bilal, Terrace Martin, Liv Warfield, and now the amazing Funk Apostles.

My passion is to attempt to portray my 'nerdery' in my music, and to explore the boundaries of what's musically normal and accepted.  I'm excited about the Funk Apostles because it's an insanely eclectic group of amazing musicians, and we all trust each other completely, which, as a combo, is extremely rare.

"Being the bass player for Cory and the Funk Apostles is amazing. Our group is dope, our friends are dope, and the people who come to our shows are dope. Plus, I get to groove alongside a wizard, a sage, an elder, a spirit, a mogul, and a prophet. Who else can say that?
