"These accusations have caused embarrassment for my family, my friends and my fans. I will fight both in and out of court to repair the damage that has been done."
Former Dave Matthews Band violinist Boyd Tinsley is denying allegations of sexual harassment filed against him in a lawsuit on Thursday, promising to defend himself and fight the claims in and out of court.
Boyd was accused by trumpeter James Frost-Winn of making frequent sexual comments to him over the course of their professional relationship as a member of the band Crystal Garden, which Boyd formed, produced and managed for a documentary project indented to chronicle the group's rise to fame.
In a statement to Billboard, Tinsley referenced an interview Frost-Winn gave to Consequence of Sound on Thursday, calling it a "one-sided account."
