Jon Shearsmith
Jon Shearsmith is a multi-faceted Guitarist/Composer/Producer based in Toronto, Canada. While his main focus is on Jazz, he is experienced playing a variety of genres ranging from RnB, Funk, Folk, Rock and Metal. Born and raised in Canada's cultural epicenter, he was exposed to Music at an early age. "I was given my first guitar when I was 13 and everything seemed to fall in place after that," says the Toronto born Shearsmith. By the time he was in High School, he began leading a band and had also taught himself how to play Drums and Bass. It was at this time that he started gigging across Toronto playing at venues such as Lee's Palace and The Big Bop, among many others. "Even though I was barely old enough to drive, I was booking shows, writing my own music and building my own recording studio," says Shearsmith on inception of his career. Upon graduating High School, he was accepted to study Music at Canada's prestigious Humber College to further his knowledge and satiate his growing intrigue with Jazz music. So far, he has had the opportunity to study with some of Canada's most renowned guitarists such as Geoff Young (Kenny Wheeler), Ted Quinlan (Tony Monaco), and Trevor Giancola (Sophie Millman). In addition to the knowledge he has acquired from these guitar greats, he has also had the opportunity to play in ensembles led by Mark Kelso (Herbie Hancock, John Scofield) and Will Jarvis. During the summer months in between school he obtained weekly residencies at venues across Toronto where he learned the true essence of Jazz music.

Jay Hay (saxophone/clarinet), Andrew Furlong (bass), Dan Gooch (trumpet)


Music of Jimmy Giuffre

Andrew Furlong
Andrew Furlong has been playing composed and improvised music on the bass since 2008, first in Edmonton, and then in Toronto since 2012. For two years he played in Edmonton's Catgut, navigating two cross-Canada tours and a release on Old Ugly Records. In Toronto, his compositions and unique extended technique-laden improvisations can be heard in the misfit jazz band My Misshapen Ear with Anthony Argatoff and Joe Sorbara, and in his own solo double bass project. Andrew can also be seen and heard in Swamp People: the music of Jimmy Guiffre with vibraphonist Michael Davidson, Laura Swankey's adventurous chamber jazz Quintet, and Patrick O'Reilly's ethereal band Chalk Repairer as well as in ad-hoc improvised settings with Toronto luminaries like Colin Fisher and Christine Duncan. Doit, his duo with Montreal trumpeter Emily Denison will be releasing its first album in the fall of 2018.

Dan Gooch
Trumpet player Dan Gooch always found it a shame that he couldn't sing when he played his instrument. Now singer-songwriter Dan Gooch has a hard time deciding what to play while he sings. Sometimes he still wishes it was the trumpet.

His debut album Your Roots Still Run Deep (independently released, 2013) presents a solution to this dilemma. With some studio magic, Dan can play lots of instruments (including brass) and sing at the same time. The album features a mix of indie folk ballads and barn burners with a prominently featured brass quartet. The result is music that one could describe as Brass Roots.

Dan Gooch studied Jazz trumpet at the University of Toronto. Since then he has honed his multi-instrumentalist skills and diversified his genres. Dan has played trumpet and keyboards with many songwriters and bands in the Toronto area including Emily Jill West, Mike Butlin, The Minotaurs, Two Roads Home, Cedar Strippers and various jazz groups. Dan is also a music educator who teaches in the public school system and out of his home studio in Toronto's Junction neighbourhood. In 2011, Dan took to writing his own songs and singing them.

Somewhere There
Somewhere There is a collective of Toronto-based musicians who present, support, and celebrate creative music-making.

Peter Boyd (guitar/voice), Noah Zacharin (guitar/voice)


Peter Boyd
Peter Boyd has been a songwriter for over thirty years. Drawing on gospel and blues from Chicago all the way back to the Delta and re-invented upside-down-and-backwards, Peter's songs are a sepia-tinged glimpse into his messy, not-fully-developed soul where faith has as much a chance as folly to send you careening into the abyss.

Peter's new CD 'Beulahland' is garnering great reviews, most recently a rave from Greg Quill in the Toronto Star - "stunning and powerful blues-rooted original songs and astonishing guitar wizardry. Among the best of the year's roots/blues crop."

Noah Zacharin
Noah Zacharin was born in Montreal and resides in Toronto. He was given his first guitar at age 9, wrote his first song at 13, began performing at 14, and is happy to say that he still loves playing music. He has been called "a wonderful songwriter and performer, and stunning guitarist" (Paul Mills, Borealis Records, Producer (Stan Rogers, Oscar Peterson), a "wonderful, adventurous guitarist" (Blues Bytes), "a poet, a songwriter, a singer we have been waiting for" (Penny Lang), "a great guitarist/singer/songwriter...a wonderfully musical player" (Randy Finney, President and Founder Toronto Fingerstyle Guitarist's Association), "in a league of his own" (Brian Gladstone, AD Winterfolk Festival), "one of the best songwriters this country has produced" (the late great Rick Fielding, recording artist, radio host) and "deserving to be mentioned in the same breath with names such as James Taylor and David Wilcox" (Minor 7th).

Zacharin's recordings have garnered praise from fans and critics alike. silence spoken here (1997) was called "an understated classic...musical versatility and lyrical depth" (Xpress-Ottawa); Scene Roots and Blues dubbed aLIVE! (2000) "a real gem"; and a review of crow dark wind (2001) in Minor 7th elicited the following: "like Bruce Cockburn, Ry Cooder, and Bonnie Raitt, Noah Zacharin possesses a virtuoso command of the guitar...world-wise songwriting."

Patrick Boyle (trumpet), Reg Schwager (guitar), Jim Vivian (bass), Mike Billard (drums)


Patrick Boyle
Boyle is known for his outstanding prowess as a trumpet player. A provocative and prolific composer, his performances are filled with jazz enthusiasts and music lovers who are lured into the purity and creativity of his playing. After Forgetting, Patrick Boyle's fourth solo album, showcases his uncanny sense of the moment and exquisite understanding of melody.

"After Forgetting is an exploration of sound and patience." says musician Patrick Boyle. "Any magic on this record comes from how well each musician listens to the entire sonic landscape, allowing our distinct personalities to contribute to the moment. I am so thrilled with the high-end audiophile sound of this album and can't wait to share it with music lovers."

After Forgetting is a new vinyl and digital release with Bill Brennan (piano), Mike Downes (bass), and Mike Billard (drums) and produced by Glen Tilley. Previous solo albums include Rock Music with Curtis Andrews (2010); Still No Word (2008 ECMA Nominee); Hold Out (2005 ECMA Nominee). Artist Bruce Alcock designed the artwork, using a photo taken by Boyle of a shed in his father's family home in Ireland. The album features original compositions alongside tunes by Bob Dylan, William Walton, and Michel Legrand.

Hailing from Mount Pearl, Newfoundland Boyle is a fearless sonic explorer. His frontiers are in performance (trumpet and guitar), improvisation, composition and education. He holds a Doctorate of Musical Arts from the University of Toronto, a M.A. in Ethnomusicology from York University and a Bachelor's Degree in performance from Memorial University. Dr. Patrick Boyle is currently an Associate Professor of Jazz Studies at the University of Victoria. He appears on over fifty commercial releases and four acclaimed solo albums. In 2009, he performed at Carnegie Hall with tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain. Boyle has cultivated the rare ability to synthesize a range of influences – including jazz, rock, traditional, Balkan, and South Indian music – which all come together into a rhythmically compelling musical voice. A composer for theatre, film and the concert stage, Boyle scored the recent Artistic Fraud production of Colony of Unrequited Dreams at the National Arts Centre.
