About the Artist(s)

Brad Pearson has been performing professionally on the Vancouver music scene since 2016 when he graduated with a bachelors of applied music from Vancouver Community College; studying classical double bass with Laurence Mollerup, and electric bass with Cameron Hood. He has performed with local legends Hugh Fraser, Campbell Ryga, Brad Turner, and Buff Allen. This bassist is best known for his associations with saxophone great John Gross, as well as the rapidly ascending piano virtuoso Jimi James Fraser. Brad enjoys playing a variety of music with other local artists including Cordelia Donovan, and The Jamie Hicks Connections Ensemble. Brad has developed his sound from a wide range of influences; both his improvisations and compositions are informed by jazz titans such as McCoy Tyner, Dexter Gordon, John Coltrane, Bill Evans as well as contemporary bassists such as Renaud Garcia-Fons, Janek Gwizdala, Mathew Garrison, and Damien Erskine. When not performing, Brad runs Pearson Instruments, a busy Vancouver guitar repair shop. He also designs and builds his own electric basses which he performs on exclusively when not playing acoustic bass.

For his After Dark performance, Brad will be presenting a trio performing his original works, as well his arrangements of jazz standards. He will be joined by Joel Faulkner on guitar, and Jamison Ko on drums
