HBO Film Score
A very cool action scene I scored as part of Spitfire Audio and HBO's composer contest. Chase-action scene from Westworld Season 3.
Some late 2019 early 2020 new releases that I've contributed upright bass to - a beautiful new full length from the lovely Kennedy Road project, Non-album singles from Dala, an awesome Joni Mitchell cover from Jadea Kelly, and an amazing full length by Ozere. Enjoy!
Leif Vollebekk Performance
Such a blast to be invited to play upright bass for this version of Leif Vollebekk's song Transatlantic Flight. This was part of a video/performance series initiated by Roy Thompson Hall called 'Variation Series'. Artists were invited to perform on Glenn Gould's piano in the foyer of Roy Thompson Hall. Leif added a small string orchestra to his contribution to the series.
Atlas Revolt at 2019 Guelph Jazz Festival
Very excited about this one. An upcoming performance at one of Canada's finest jazz festivals.
From the festival - "Toronto bassist Bret Higgins leads this juggernaut instrumental sextet to play his deft, smart compositions. Delivered throughout with rock intensity, Atlas Revolt music draws on the sumptuous melodic traditions of Eastern Europe and South America and delivers then in a rhythmically intoxicating context with a flair for the psychedelic and the drama of film-score. The band’s two records ‘Illusion Machine’ (2018 - Chant Records) and their self titled debut (2015 - Tzadik Records) are superb, featuring talented Toronto musicians. Saturday 14th of September, 8:00 pm, Market Square Stage, free concert."
New Single 'Breakup' from Megan Bonnell
This super fun song Breakup is now out in the world. A co-write between Megan Bonnell and myself. I also played some keys (Clavinet, JX3P and (I think some) Korg MS-20 (made it on to the final too)).
Jadea Kelly 'EP'
The amazing and talented Jadea Kelly put this EP out into the world. One of a of a set of songs for a documentary called 'Met While Incarcerated', I contributed some upright bass for this one.
