A native of Montreal, Tom has been a well-known figure in the Winnipeg scene for many years. Besides being an award-winning journalist, Tom is also as an accomplished musician. He has been the drummer for many local bands and luckily the Stephanie Westdal Band was fortunate to be in his sight lines. Whether he is reading charts, improvising, or working with click tracks, Tom is at home with any musical genre including rock, jazz, latin, funk, heavy metal, punk, blues, reggae, country, and progressive rock.
Tom has always been interested in playing live gigs, doing studio work, jamming with musicians, learning cover songs, or creating original music. He appreciates and understands the complexities of relating to what the other band members are doing, so locking into their vibe is high on his list of priorities. A drummer who is “in the pocket” at all times is a joy to watch. Tom belongs to that elite group. If you want to experience the performance of an inspired and connected drummer, make a point of seeing him live. It’s well worth the trip.
Ron has traveled the globe as a photographer, musician, consultant, and entrepreneur. His interest in music has provided him the opportunity to share his expertise as a consultant in diverse communities ranging from Rankin Inlet in Nunavut to Paris, (France), Berlin, (Germany), San Jose, (Costa Rica) and London, (England).
As a music producer, Ron was responsible for the production and distribution of many Canadian album projects, a few of which have garnered music awards. As a musician and songwriter, he has written and produced songs in English and in French, many of which have been played on Canadian radio and television. He also spent a good portion of his artist management career assisting new and unknown artists make their way through the music industry minefield. As a result, many of his protégés have gone on to be world-class international musicians and singer-songwriters.
Besides being a producer and engineer, Ron is adept at playing the guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and harmonica and has recently performed in Paris, France as part of local blues band.
