Boyd Tinsley, the Dave Matthews Band violinist, has been accused of sexual misconduct, according to online entertainment magazine Consequence of Sound.

Tinsley was accused of sexual misconduct by James Frost-Winn.

Frost-Winn, 28, is a trumpet player who worked for Tinsley as part of the band Crystal Garden during 2015 and 2016.

Forst-Winn is now seeking $9 million in damages against Tinsley. He says the 54-year-old violinist created a “hostile work environment” and made unwanted advances.

The Dave Matthews band told Consequence of Sound that Tinsley is “no longer a member of the band” and said they are “shocked by these disturbing allegations and we were not previously aware of them.”
