Brownman Electryc Trio nominated for a TIMA!

The Brownman Electryc Trio has been nominated for a Toronto Independent Music Award in the “Best Jazz” category. The BET’s most recent record Gravitation was released June 2013 and features a plethora of great bassists, including Damian Erskine. Daryl Angier, former editor-in-chief of CODA Magazine, described me as “one of Toronto’s most 20-something electric bassists” in the album’s liner notes and it has been a blast to be a part of this band for the last year and a bit. Onwards and upwards!
