2018 Juno Nominated Brad Cheeseman talks bass and beyond


Senior Arts Editor Mark Wigmore speaks bassist and composer Brad Cheeseman about his career and his nomination in the 'Jazz Album of the Year (Solo)' category at this year's Juno Awards for his album 'The Tide Turns'.

Brad Cheeseman was in Vancouver this weekend thanks to his Juno Award-nominated album, The Tide Turns. The bassist and composer from Hamilton, Ontario is a graduate of Ancaster High and Mohawk College, and also studied at Humber. In 2016, The Brad Cheeseman Group won the Montreal Jazz Festival’s coveted Grand Prix de Jazz thanks to a stellar appearance. He's a winner of several Hamilton Music Awards, a multiple nominee, and also has a hat-full of Toronto Independent Music Awards. His beautiful and inventive collection of songs on The Tide Turns stood out to critics, but also to the judges at the 2018 Juno Awards. Brad was up for his first Juno in the Jazz Album of the Year Solo category during the March 24th ceremony. He faced serious heavyweights like Montreal's Chet Doxas, Mike Downes and his all-star quartet, Hilario Duran's Cuban homage Contumbao, and Ralph Bowen's latest effort. Brad Cheeseman speaks to Mark about his Juno experience, and the making of his Juno-nominated album.
