Brad Cheeseman is a JUNO-nominated bassist and composer from Hamilton, Ontario. A much sought-after musician both on stage and in the studio, Cheeseman’s lyrical bass playing and melody-driven compositions have been featured on Canadian, American, and European stages, and captured on four original recordings.

Cheeseman’s newest recording, The Tide Turns, chronicles a period of change, self-discovery and reinvention, and reinforces the cornerstones of his music: engaging melodies, playful rhythms, and an honest, emotional core. The album comes on the heels of winning the Montreal Jazz Festival’s coveted Grand Prix de Jazz with his acclaimed Brad Cheeseman Group, a contemporary jazz quintet that has been performing and recording since 2012.

Brad Cheeseman’s previous releases include 2016’s Figurants EP, (a collection of compositions based on the novel Infinite Jest), 2015’s Brad Cheeseman Group, and 2013’s Mixed Messages EP. These albums have received airplay across Canada, won two Hamilton Music Awards and have been nominated for three Toronto Independent Music Awards.

In addition to his work as bandleader, Cheeseman has had the privilege of  performing with many great Canadian jazz musicians, including Colleen Allen, Bruce Cassidy, Terry Clarke, Don Englert, Adrean Farrugia, John Macleod, Mike Malone, Reg Schwager and Nancy Walker.
